Quiet Weekend

I am having a nice quiet weekend and with our yearly visit from the chilly and gusty Westerly Winds I have stayed very close to my fire which is just perfect for sitting and stitching. I haven't really minded as I am throughly enjoying being at home with my own things around me.
I have had to take stock since coming home and while I thought I was up to date with my 'secret women's business' I have had to admit I needed to move myself a little and so I ventured into the disaster zone which is better known as my sewing space and can happily report some little 'secrets' are looking a lot closer to being finished.....a little sneaky peek.
The little grey cells have also been mulling over the new Christmas Quilt which I have called "Home for Christmas" and I made a start on putting it together today so I also have a sweet little pile of 2 1/2 inch squares to show for my bravery in entering that room!!! 
It has been nice having my Mum here to bounce ideas off as well.
That's it from me. I am off to have some yummy warm left over lamb stew with crusty bread and then settle down to watch the remainder of "The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo".
I hope whatever you are doing you are happy doing it.
Blessings Michelle xxx
