Thank you very much for hosting Wendy after your busy week.
Following last months FNSI I was visited by Tracy the Outback Craftaholic. And I am so pleased that I was because of course I returned the visit and found myself another great blog to follow. Not only that but Tracy had a giveaway that I could not resist entering for and yes, you have guessed it, I won! And I am so, so pleased.
I thought this Gail Pan book would be good and it certainly is. Lots of lovely Christmas projects to stitch. The book arrived last weekend while we were away and I could not wait to get started. My first project was soon traced up and stitching commenced. So appropriately that is what I was doing yesterday.
And this is as far as I had got when I had to give up and go to bed last night!
I had two friends visiting in the afternoon - Linda who is completing the quilting on her first quilt - a goosey gander lap quilt and Babs who was planning a hanging tote to store her rulers and cutters. She made a good start on one of the patchwork pockets for it too. So a lovely gossipy productive afternoon raced by helped along with tea and chocolate cookies.
I have finished all the patchwork now on my hexagon table topper - all it needs is some lining fabric and maybe a few tied stitches to hold the layers.
And of course I still love the back! I shall be sorry to cover it up.
I am still sorting through my pictures from Rome - had to take my second best camera to save weight and it does not have a viewfinder. So although the quality of pictures it takes is good, in brilliant sunshine, which is what we had, it was not always easy to see what I was taking!!
However, we had a fabulous time and I shall tell you all about it soon.
Hope you are having a great weekend.
