Christmas Break Ups

This last week has been lots of parties.......
and that means lots of pressies......

I so coveted these little angel scissors when I saw them on Jenny's blog.... as a giveaway.... and I nearly cried when I didn't win them (but it was okay 'cos Allie did!)
..... so guess who was excited at getting these from Quilt Craft - my favourite quilt shop and club
~ she even has a figure like mine ~
~ oh - those are wings? - well I can dream ~

I also received these lovely chocolates from an Aged Care facility where I visit...
the box is empty now - of course - how do you think I got that angel figure?

~ seems like angels are around ~ 
this time from the local craft group - this is a cute lavender sachet to hang in my cupboard
~ not with the clothes ~
~ with my fabrics (she will live with the important stuff!) ~

~ her figure looks like mine too ~

This is what I took to the craft group - a mug rug and mug - big mug
~ well, I should share my body secrets at this giving time of year ~

~ and this one will be posted this week ~
~ but I am only showing it later ~
~ it's a secret you see ~

This next gift is a special one I bought two of 
(one for me and one for a friend)

This is a pattern Joy has designed and all the profits made in December will go to support projects in Thailand which are trying to slave trading and child trafficing.

This is a pretty pattern and wouldn't take too many hours to make.... plus we get to support a good cause.

You can read the story behind the pattern  HERE

~ I have had a little bit of time for real work ~

These hexies do vexies me a little bit

This is the last round of the Stitch-A-Long

~ I have done some gift tag making ~

~ Now I have to go and clean up the mess ~
~ maybe tea and cake first ~
~ I have a figure to maintain ~

Hi Fiona,
You have been incredibly busy with so many fabulous pics to share. I wonder what Santa will bring you to add to your haul of presents.
