Let me see - today I played taxi driver for my son, bought groceries, filled a script, posted the latest laundry bag to Afghanistan and posted the parcel off to my Blog Hop Party Give Away winner, bought a big folding table for our Christmas party, organised the meat for Christmas, our Boxing Day Party and a special dinner we are having with friends on Thursday, was visited by one of the lovely girls from Quilt Group and I made shortbread, and more shortbread and even more shortbread. Yep! I don't do bored well!
I even managed to get some pics of some of my favourite Christmas things. This Christmas stocking was made for me by a friend - all hand embroidered!!! How lovely is that. So much work!
These are the two I made for my boys when they were a lot littler and still believed in You Know Who!
And you might remember my Christmas Quilt from the Quilt Retreat I went on last year. It was up in the local quilt shop but I have reclaimed it for Christmas. It has replaced the mermaid quilt just for Christmas.
The hanging arrangement isn't the best but it was done in a hurry whilst help was available. Next year I will do better and will probably even add to this collection. I have a lovely stitched mini quilt that a friend made but I have put it somewhere very safe.......grrr.
I love all these wall hangings for various sentimental reasons. This tree is special as my mum embroidered the tree - she did four or five of them and I finished them off - each one was different depending on who it was for.
Mum also embroidered this panel too - cute!
And you just got to love the toad! I did another of these for a cousin who loves frogs.
And this is my gorgeous kris kringle gift
I didn't get to my machine today but I was determined to make some progress on something - I managed to cut out the pieces for three more star blocks for oue soldier girl quilts - seven more to cut
and I also cut the pieces for a modified disappearing nine patch quilt for our horse loving soldier girl. Need more fabric for this one which I hope to get tomorrow.
More errands and cutting out and so on tomorrow!
