My how time passes when having fun! I hope you have all been enjoying making some lovely things for family and friends like I have. Stitching is always such a relaxing thing for me to do and I get a bit anxious when I don't have time to do it.  My " In Full Bloom" stitcheries were left after the retreat but I have since got back into them and have done 3 more and am currently stitching another. So, I have completed 5.

I have also completed the Rosalie Quinlan Christmas wreath and just need to sew some red borders onto it and them frame it.

Then there are the little free Christmas stitcheries from Red Brolly that I am also stitching. ( See Red Brolly's link on my side bar).

The other day I took my girlfiend out for a birthday lunch at a lovely little cafe which happens to be almost next door to one of my favourite patchwork shops. Did we venture in? OFCOURSE!!!! Some lovely new 1800's repro fabrics had just arrived the day before so I couldn't resist. I also bought some fat 1/8ths.

AND we looked in a bric a brac/antique store and I found 2 1/2 meters of this fabric for $8-00!!!!!

Meanwhile I am still trying to get back to the Wish Quilt and have also stitched a couple of pressies that I cannot show on here because the recipients will see them.

I haven't read a lot this past month but here are the books that I did read.

Angel Blessings until next time.
