My family have arrived and we are having a lovely time catching up.... good weather so BBQ every night, sore jaws, lots of laughter and a bit of baby clothes shopping .........
Cheryll from Gone Stitching has been doing a fun 12 days of Christmas giveaway and I was lucky enough to get the goodies for Day 7 -
- there are 7 labels for stitching
- there are 7 gift tags
- there are 7 lengths of ribbon
- there WERE 7 chocolates
~ such fun ~ THANKS Cheryll ~
It has been great fun reading Cherylls blog as there has been all sorts of fun information about traditions etc - you can go have a lookie HERE.....
~ I ordered the 'Tis the Season pattern book from Maree this week and she posted it so quick smart ~
Marie has opened up her own little on line shop and has a newsletter blog giving updates over HERE - I just couldn't resist this pattern - especially once I heard that Chookyblue has a stitch-a-long planned next year with this pattern.....
I told you about sending Cassandra a gift in the washcloth swap and today my gift (s) arrived.... how spoilt was I?
I haven't met Tracy before so I have popped over to her blog HERE - she lives on a farm and theres turkeys, and sheep and lots of lovely garden to see (I love the fresh vegetables), raising children, farming, gardening and time to craft too.... very impressive..
~ look at all the goodies I received ~
~ two beautiful knitted washcloths, tea in the most sweetest tin ever, and a crocheted cloth for over the milk - with beads on the edge to hold it down - and stop those clever flies getting into the milk ~
They are lovely - thank you Tracy
As I said we are having BBQ every night we can... last night someone came by to have a sticky beak.... don't know if it thought maybe we had a toasted rodent for it....
We were sitting in the patio and he/she just sat at the corner for a while.... a special visitor.. a Tawny Frogmouth (I think)
(sorry - not a very good picture)
DIL loves what I have done so far with the baby quilt - and has started helping with the stitching... I should have a few blocks next week.
.....My apologies for late responses in replying to emails......
