Some Sneaky Stuff & Show & Tell

It seems that a lot of 'sneaky' stuff for swaps is going on already here in blogland and I am pleased to say I am right in the thick of it. So..............sneaky stuff No. 1
Doesn't look much I know but there are a lot of little stitches under there.
The other sneaky thing that has been taking up so much of my time and given me much angst is lots of planning, stitching and instruction writing for this......
I can now say thankfully that it is complete. There was a huge amount of work in this project but I am super happy with the results. I will tell you all about it fully in the very near future. I just thought I would give you a sneaky because I would hate you to think I have been lolling about eating chokkies and daydreaming (both of which are very acceptable past times to me) however such is not the case and it has taken up a huge amount of my time.
Well on to "Show & Tell".  I am in a birthday club and one of the sweet ladies in it with me PAT from Club Quilt Narromine  sent me a piccie of a project she had done from my "Christmas Fixins'" booklet. It is so lovely I asked Pat if I could share it with you all....
Isn't it gorgeous! I just love the spots and it is so beautifully stitched. Thank you Pat for sharing it with me.
Just had to say I finished Kate Morton's book "The Secret Keeper" and wow! Loved it and so sad it is over.  I didn't see the ending coming at all. If you haven't read it do yourself a big favour. Write faster Kate I need another fix already. I promise I will stop showing off now.....
