Phew......


We survived.....


It's been a bit like that this year


Just before Christmas I received lovely post with ornaments

From Susan

From Jeanette ….

and from Karen …. and extra card from Raewyn...


Thank you I just love them

My tree looked lovely with only hand made ornaments on it.... and so many memories and thoughts go with them.... 

I did make some and sent them off... I only took this picture of the backs!



….. but I have 'stolen' this one from Michelle's blog...


I used some glitter cork fabric on some, and some glitter felt on others and some sweet Tilda angels....  some raw edge applique and pinking sheers and finished off with hemp twine.....  a real mix of textures....

WE had a quiet Christmas but I had a good giggle at my mug with mugshots... (Hubz and I got one each.... the motley crew making silly faces)


… and up to date pictures of the grandchildren.....  As most of you know they live far away (bar 1) so having these is very precious to me.....


I have continued with my hand quilting, and the last couple of days done some machine quilting of my own......


Handstitching has continued …. as always.... and this sweet butterfly is done....


… and this one which is very apt for the end of one year and the beginning of the next....


This last couple of days I have been doing some sorting and updated my pages (at the top of my blog page) for UFO's and the Quilting Queue... both very long.  

I always make great progress on my UFO's which usually results in increased quilting queue... and then of course I start a whole lot more to be UFO's for the following year.... that's the way it works in this house....

Wishing you and yours all the best, and may we have a wonderful year full of blogging friendship.....

I can relate to the picture at the start of your post....My family have gone home today after a fabulous Christmas .....
Lots of lovely handmade ornies to add to your tree..
Beautiful memorable gifts from your family and nice to have been able to have time to do some sewing for yourself. Also do some sorting out...
Looking forward to another year of reading lots of posts from our blogging friends...🤗😘

Happy to know you have survived another crazy Christmas time. You got some lovely gifts. Enjoy the respite. Another crazy year is about to start. (The UFOs and the quilting pile get the same treatment at my place, lol.) ;^)

This week between Christmas and New Years is a nice break, isn't it? Things are mostly back to normal, but still relaxed and festive. No deadlines now, though! Glad you're recovering well from the holiday madness :)
