Christmas Time Is Near - See What Iv Been Upto

Heres an update of a few christmas projects.  I decided to make some embroidered postcards for overseas family members instead of cards.  Just loved making them.  Silly pics upside down again.

The last few years I have done a mystery 12 days of christmas parcel for a special friend and every year I pick someone new to receive one.  This year whilst explaining the idea to a dear friend she decided to suprise me with one as well.  So this year I sent out two parcels for Marie and Jan who come to our sewing group Marie only sews by hand and Jan who is new to patchwork but seems to be hooked already.  I knew it would get you Jan.  Both wonderful ladies who have been just wonderful friends.  So Maries first gift to me was a santa kit.  I spent the day yesterday making it up right away so that it didnt fall into the GET AROUND TO IT LATER pile.  The single santa is what I make and the other pic is how the kit was should have been.  She knew I could change it.  Thanks Marie

Shaggy Christmas Tree

After having my Shaggy Christmas Tree published in a recent issue of Handmade out patchwork group decided to make it for a class project.  I was just amazed at how wonderful and different they all turned out.  One of our ladies has a stall at a local market and I was told that on her recent stall she proudly took her Christmas tree as a decoration.  Thanks to all the girls for joining in with the project you have all made such wonderful trees.  This is a pic of my second one made as a demo for the class which I have already passed onto a friend who LOVES purple even more than I do.  Hope you enjoy your tree Marilyn.

Rain Rain Go Away

The last few days have been delightful.  No rain but everything was so wet its still drying out.  Sending a big hug and hello to everyone in Wagga I was watching on the news hoping the patchwork shop was ok.  Ha Ha.  Really was watching and hoping that there wasnt to much damage and that everyone was safe.  Wonderful town Wagga full of friendly faces.
