Still around

Absent but not idle. So many luncheons so many school functions, Christmas shopping it all gets very busy around this time of the year.
Firstly I have to show of my very cute Christmas swap gift from Selina. I have had the parcel for a few weeks now but was reluctant to open until she had recieved my parcel. Unfortunatly my parcel still has not arrived so I am now in the process of remaking. Thank you Selina I love my little elf hanging ornament and he is now happily hanging on the tree.

My gift to Selina will hopefully be on its way again soon. Trust Australia Post???????
A beautiful card came with the little elf .
GS Ryan graduated from Pre-school this week and is very excited to be going to big school next year. Don't you love them in their cap and gowns in his certificate.

During the week I made this gift for GD Kaitlyn's teacher. I made one similar last year for her year 2 teacher and she thought her teacher this year would just love to have one too.

Another Christmas wreath for me this time. I had so much fun making the blue and silver wreath I just had to make another. I only used approximatly 70 balls this time I think the blue one had over 80 balls. I just love these.

This year at the quilting group I belong to we had a challenge. The challenge was to use a fat quarter of the blue fabric and to add up to three other fabrics and embellish with braids, buttons or whatever you wished to use. You could create anything you liked it didn't have to be quilt related so I chose to make this adorable little baby outfit. I chose the extra fabric to be white and added rick-rack and yo-yo's with buttons for my embellishing. I won viewers choice and most innovative category at our end of year Christmas dinner function last night.

I also had to make a gift for GD Kaitlyn's physicul culture teacher Tracie, so I made her a diary cover in her favourite colours of greens and purples and added a purple pen.

A small embroidered piece for Christmas is still on the go just have to sandwich the top and bind hopefully before Christmas is apon us.
