Over the Teacups, New Patterns & Post

Yesterday I set all these out ready.....
Did a spot of baking.....Pear Butter cake and my favourite type of baking "One Bowl Slice"
Made some pikelets and then throughly enjoyed the company of my stitching sisters who came to my home for stitching. We caught up on all the gos. from those who have been off travelling. Sandra showed us this lovely quilt she is now hand quilting. That's Sandra peeking over the top.
A little close up of the fabrics. It was made from a layer cake and the photo doesn't do it justice. It is so soft and pretty and took about patience sewing all those strips on it. Isn't it pretty. Sandra has the most exquisite taste in everything she does.
The postie dropped off another Santa Sack delivery this morning.....I am getting really worried about those Elves down Cheryll's way as this time the parcel was 'early' I am sure they have had toooo many rum balls
But the parcels are sooo cute....
Thank you Cheryll for spoiling me.
Ok! I now have them all in their shiny little bags and ready for sale.... we have -
" A Christmas Tail"  with Miss Mistletoe. A small quilt, santa sack and bonus tree ornament design.$16.50 Aus P&H included within Australia.
"Merry Mistletoe" small quilt and gift bag $16.50 Aus.
You will remember last post I was cutting out stars well they have become this new little design.
"6 Mini Christmas Stars" there are 6 different little mini stitcheries included in the pattern. This is perfect for those quick gifts or as an extra on a Christmas parcel.....perfect for all you swap girls or just to hang as an ornament on your Christmas tree. $12.00 Aus.
Overseas customers will have to add postage and I only accept Paypal as payment for overseas orders.
If you wish to order any of these new Christmas designs please email me.
Well folks now you know what I have been up to lately. Oh I should add "Merry Mistletoe" is the design I have been stitching along with my private on line group. I have made it into a pattern as so many of you had enquired about it.
Well that's it from me for today.
Blessings Michelle xx
