I've been stitching a few of these...

Christmas sentiments for faraway families

folded up as a card... ready for posting....

they are a lovely design from Jenny of Elefantz


Are you looking for some last minute Christmas inspiration?

Kerryanne does a lovely blog and at this time of year there are so many wonderful ideas - there is baking, making, decorating, linky parties, guest posts

well, Fee did a guest post - a monogrammed lavender sachet... so cute
(I have lavender drying as we speak!)
- she also had a give away for a voucher for a book -
you guessed it
I won
so I ordered my book and look what arrived in the post last week

I have had Sarah's book on my wish list for a while... I am so going to enjoy this.. she does lovely little projects to practice a new technique before starting a large quilt - I love that idea

there was a bit of voucher left so I topped it up and got this little book too

Fee's blog is wonderful too... full of ideas, personal insights and prettiness - it is a lovely place to visit

Thank-you Kerryanne and Fee for a lovely prize - this will be hours of pleasure to me


Thanks to my SIL Mandy for this bit of Christmas Cheer


I am seeing 5 gentlemen (give or take) every day!. 

As soon as I wake up, 
Will Power helps me get out of bed.

Then I go to see John. 

Then Arthur Ritis shows up & stays the rest of the day. 
He doesn't like to stay in one place very long so he takes me from joint to joint

After such a busy day, I'm really tired & very glad to go to bed with Earl Grey. 

What a life! 
Oh, yes, I'm also flirting with Al Zymer;
or whatever his name is. I forget !

and I'm thinking of calling JACK DANIELS, Captain Morgan or JOHNNY WALKER to come over and keep me company.

Congratulations on your win! What a nice book to add to your library. Your little stitched cards are adorable and your stitchery amazing. You know, you could stitch up some cards with some of Maxine's funny lines and maybe a cute little dog similar to hers. Bet your friends would love 'em!

Cute fabric cards. I've seen these done in card/paper but yours look more personal with the stitching and fabric.
Thanks for posting the joke and thank Mandy for the belly laugh....this is why I don't drink beverages while blogging or I would have electrocuted myself or blown up the computer by now!!

Wendy said...

The Christmas tea idea is wonderful and they look so beautiful. Lovely books too ... enjoy! I'm off to check out the links you have given.

Mistea said...

The cards are an excellent idea - must remember that idea for next year.
Enjoy perusing (or is that drooling) over your new books. Guess we'll see some more little things from you real soon, that is if you have time to sew between entertaining all your men. Very funny.
