Mixed Bag

Well where to start. Firstly the clever ladies from the "Quilted Gumboot" in Taihape in New Zealand have been working on my little reindeers in Down Reindeer Lane and have sent me a photo...want to see??
Last year these lovely ladies stitched Christmas Bakeshop. I think they might be a little partial to Christmas like me. Big thanks to Pauline owner of "The Quilted Gumboot" for sending me the photo to share and for her wonderful support across 'the ditch'.
I have a little sneaky peek of my little Friendship Birdie that you all were so kind in your comments about.

And in the 'what's next' in the stitching department.....the Frosties won out.
They all drawn out and ready to go.....little excited. Love a new project. Especially Snowmen!!!
Now you just knew there would be more baby pics so if you are not that way inclined look away now.
My first cuddles...

Very proud Nanna and Grampy.
Wide awake...
Such a dear little girl....and we are not biased at all. The exciting thing is that little Charlotte is going to have some company in just 3 weeks and we get to do this all over again.
Have a great day everyone.
Blessings Michelle xxx
