December FNWF

I had all intentions of stitching up a storm last night over at Cheryll's with the rest of my blogging friends. However I had such a full on day of running around getting all the "domestic duties" that besiege us all that by the time I got home I was had much so I actually forgot I had a coffee date with my old work colleagues (feeling very bad and sucking up the teasing like a big girl at the moment) that not like me!

When I eventually got over my disappointment about my senior moment and not seeing the girls I did achieve one of my goals I had set myself for the evening which was...because I can't count, to make an extra gingie person!
So! Ta Da! whole nights effort....
I also christened my new Santa mug rug.....very festive having a cuppa out of my fav Frosty mug! Thanks again it!
Thank you so much to the very lovely Cheryll for encouraging us to stitch madly once a month with all our blogging friends. It is always good fun.
It is the time of year when poor old postie has a very full satchel but I so appreciated some lovely mail she bought yesterday. It came all the way from the UK. If you are a long time follower of my blog you will know I love the art and works of Beatrix Potter. So does a lovely lady who follows my blog, Sue who lives in the UK. Sue has spoilt me in the past with special Beatrix Potter cards and yesterday I was spoilt again....
A beautiful Christmas card...isn't it adorable! I never tire of looking at her beautiful illustrations.
Thank you so much Sue xxx
Sue also popped inside a postcard featuring another favourite...hexies!
 It is from the American Museum in Britain in Bath which has a collection of antique quilts. Sue recently made a visit there. The quilt on the postcard is a friendship quilt dating from 1848. Each of the 90 flowers has a signature on it. What a very fortunate person was the lady who received this quilt from her friends. Thank you so much Sue for thinking of me on your trip and ...yes! I do love my hexies!
I am off to write some Christmas cards...
I wish you all a wonderful weekend,

Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
