Is it Friday Already

I have no clue where this week went. I only know it's gone. Do you have weeks like that? I have been very busy here with lots of projects moving along towards the finish line at the same time. I just need another pair of hands.
I have finished quilting "My Country Garden" and have sewn the binding on.....the photos I have taken of this do not show properly how pretty the fabrics are or maybe it's the photographer!!!!
I am hoping to sit in my chair and hand sew it down tonight.....I love that bit.
I have been popping lots of patterns and booklets in their little bags and I love that too.
The bossy mouse got her way and so "A Christmas Tail" with Miss Mistlemouse is coming together.
I also forgot to show you the Santa Sack/Tote bag I sent to Cheryll my partner in the swap. I didn't know when I drew this little gingie for Christmas Fixin's that it would be perfect for this bag. I hope she is not squeezing the goodies inside....
Speaking of little booklets....the "Gingie" brigade out there (you know who you are!!!) will be pleased to know that "Gingerbread Kisses" is all done and I can show you a little sample of one of the drawings stitched in redwork. I think it's very cute but then I am also a card carrying member of the Gingie fan club. The price is $14.00 Aus.

I am really excited that one of my lovely followers Cheryl with one 'L' has taken a big leap from the sidelines and joined us in Blogland with her very own blog "Cheryl s Stitchings Welcome Cheryl it's about time. If you haven't already, pop over and say G'day and welcome. If she doesn't get back to you straight away it's because she is having some
technical issues but will be back replying to us real soon. Isn't it lovely to welcome a new blogger.
Have a great weekend everyone.
Blessings Michelle xx

  1. I think the World must be spinning faster, therefore time is going faster, and hour is only 30 mins these days!...that's my theory and I am sticking to it. It has nothing to do with the fact I am getting old!!
