Squeeeling ....

It is crazy busy for me here..... getting things ready for the invasion....  I am a spreaderer... my treasures (fabric and stuff like that) get spread into any unused spaces... so when I say I need to clear space in the rooms for people to sleep... I am not exaggerating.... 

I actually quite like the tidiness.... I wonder if I will keep it...

These sweeties are in the air as we speak... it's such a long way... about 23 hours of flying and then all the waiting at airports etc.....


I need Teeny pads I'm so excited!!! (ooops, should one say things like that in public?)

This week I received patterns from Michelle... I'm looking forward to using these next year.. there is a new alphabet featuring bears and a set of quilt labels to stitch....


Thanks Theresa for my lovely decoration.... so pretty and up on the tree already...


Before I covered up my faithful friend sewing machine I quickly sewed on the latest block onto my sampler....

The rest will have to wait till next year!

This was Hubz job yesterday... we have a rather boring veranda roofing.... so he added a bit of magic....

There is also twinkling lights.... we shall be out here a lot 


... before they left the UK little miss princess remembered someone needed to be told where she would be....


I will be reading blogs when I can but probably not commenting much or writing much over the next few weeks (I'm frightfully selfish about sharing time when family are here!!)

Best wishes for a stunning Christmas ... whatever you do may it be a very relaxing and precious time, some have sadness so special thoughts to you... our absent friends and relatives are in our minds more than ever at Christmas....

See you next year, and thanks for another year of wonderful bloggy friendship...
