Christmas Sale

I have been busy since I arrived home getting a few items ready for an art sale with friends....
It will be held at the beautiful Richard Randall Art studio at Mt Cootha Botanical Gardens from Wednesday 14th December until Friday 16th December...its a lovely space.
I have had some of my art made into cards (I'm not ready to part  with the originals yet !
I also stitched a few L'il Aussie Christmas Decos for sale.
Along with my Holly Cottage Christmas Book and a few patterns too.
All are now packed and ready....phew! I am looking forward to sitting with a bit of stitching at the sale....pop along if you  can. Some beautiful art, jewelry, pottery to be had.
Now that is all done and dusted I jumped back on the Splendid Sampler train. I started with a bit of applique and have prepped a few more blocks.
Some little pieces to needleturn....but good fun!
As I am typing this the parcel man bought my SSCS .....all the way from Portugal ! Excitement plus!
Beautiful packages.....from Noemia!
I was very good and popped my Christmas gift under the tree.....
My ornament which I AM allowed to open is just adorable and so beautifully stitched....
I just love it thank you so much is beautiful ! I am saving my other gifts for Christmas day too! I can't guarantee the chocolates will make it though lol! Thanks also to Chookyblue for organising this swap x
Ok off to hang my beautiful ornament on my special friends tree.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
