Christmas Swap

This is the beautiful tablerunner I received from Leanne in the FIS Christmas Swap.

It fits perfectly on the top of our TV cabinet.
 I love the Martinque fabrics and Leanne's awesome quilting.

She is very clever.

Leanne also made me this lovely bag ...

 with a beautiful button and ...

gorgeous lining fabric.

Thank you so much Leanne ... your gifts were perfect for me. I LOVE 3 Sisters fabric and Martinique is one of my favourite ranges.
Since Christmas I've had a rather yucky 'virus' which has totally sapped any energy I had left after the 'madness' of all the end of year activities.
While I was sick I missed my 3 year blogging 'birthday' ... please come back soon for a little giveaway to help me celebrate.

Happy New Year.

Ornament Swap

On Tuesday night the Material Girls had their Christmas break-up at a local Chinese restaurant. Each year we have a Christmas ornament swap. I made one of Rosalie Quinlan's Hearts of Christmas.


I was lucky enough to receive a lovely Stitchers Stocking made by Anne.

Love the star and all those rusty bells. Thank you Anne.

Just one more week of school before the Christmas/Summer holidays start. At the moment I'm caught up in a whirlwind of performances with my school choirs ... Community Carols tonight, Grade 6 Leaver's Assembly tomorrow, Nursing Homes and Apex Park singing on Tuesday, Early Childhood Christmas performance on Wednesday ... I think you get the picture! Lots of fun but I'll fall in a heap at the end of the week!
I'm really looking forward to catching up on my blog reading/commenting and completing some of my many unfinished projects in the holidays.
