A Jolly Holly Gathering

Good morning everyone. Well as promised my little Christmas quilt "A Jolly Holly Gathering" is now in pattern form.
The cost of this pattern is $14.50 Aus. Postage is free within Australia.
I also have for purchase "Let's Stitch" Needlebook and Scissor Keeper pattern.
The cost of this pattern is $13.50 Aus. If you wish to purchase either of these patterns you can order by emailing me.

I have been spending some more time stitching little Christmas ornaments. These cuties I saw on Christine's blog  from Macdonald's Patch Christine had followed the link supplied by our lovely friend Melody  to Camelia Rose's  lovely blog where she offered a free tutorial. I have put my own little stamp on them. They are so cute and they are very addictive.
I made 3 in the blue which was the featured colourway but could not resist some in red/white. I also know someone who loves pink decorations so I made a little sweet pink one too.
So thank you to all of you who shared, Melody, Christine and Ruth from Camelia Rose. I think I will be making a couple more. As I said ....very addictive.
Some quick show and tell also. Joy from Bundaberg (no blog) purchased my "Season's Stitchery" mini quilts pattern and has made each one into a tote bag so she has one for all the seasons of the year.
Here are Joy's tote's...
Great idea Joy. She is set now no matter what time of the year it is. Thanks for sharing your stitching.
Well I am off to spend the day with my lovely friend Gaye.
I wish you a wonderful day.
Blessings Michelle xxx
