Warning! No pic post!

Sorry girls, no photos to show you tonight as I have been working on a kris kringle present for one of my quilt group - a fellow Gumnut or Nutter as we call ourselves. 

Big news of the day is that I received a lovely email from Jo, the lone female soldier of the group we have been doing things for.  What a lovely surprise.  I won;t copy all of the email here but I am sure she won't mind me sharing one little quote from her with my quilty friends :

"I love my quilt so much but I don't want to use it in case it gets ruined :) Its so beautiful I put it on my bed and at night time I fold it away. I just love it. :) "

Isn't rewarding to make something and have it appreciated!  Earlier on today my friend, Celia asked me if I thought the girls would like some bags.  I asked the Warrant Officer for some info regarding the girls and he suggested that jo reply to me.  She has given us the intials of four of her friends who she thought would love some girly things.  Celia is now planning to sew and so are the Gumnuts.  I feel four more laundry bags and four pretty girliy quilts coming on. 

I think the rest of my quilt group is a bit burnt out after all the sewing we have been doing lately so the quilts will probably have to wait till January.  Celia has said she might be able to make one or two quilt tops so that will be lovely!  If anyone else wants to get involved too just let me know and we will work something out.

I finished my kris kringle gift number one tonight - the major one - and I am about a third of the way thru the accessories to go with it.  More sewing tomorrow until I have to collect the boys from school.  Sadly I might have to post about other things for a few days till I get my secret christmas sewing done.  I will see what I can do. 

Till next time.........happy stitching!


  1. How in the world will you have time for it all? There is a saying I have heard and it goes something like this "If you want something done ask someone who is really busy"! I think you need a day of rest and maybe a massage. I bet it was wonderful to receive the thank you email from Jo!!

  2. How wonderful to get an email from the very appreciative soldier... just wonderful xxx

  3. You must have been so tickled to receive the email! Good on ya!

  4. So fantastic, you've done amazing things for these soldiers & they are loving everything you are sending them, thank you, love Posie

  5. It's such a lovely bonus when we get to hear that something we've made and given is sincerely appreciated and loved.
