I know Christmas is well and truly over, but I still wanted to share some photos of our decorations…. we did a bit of baking and chocolate making, and ate way too much! Elizabeth made this gorgeous chocolate village:
I got some nice pressies, one of which was from my sister. See the note that she put with it?!
I also got this little package in the mail from Di:
Isn’t she sweet? Di sent both Alice and myself a Christmas card, bookmark and lovely handmade ornament with Believe stitched on one side, and 2009, Quilting is Blissful, Hugs Di written on the other side. Thank you Di, you are so thoughtful and caring 🙂
Di’s parcel arrived just in time for Alice’s quick stopover on her way back to the US. When I say quick, I mean quick. They arrived on Boxing Day, stayed two nights and had to head off again. But we had one full day, which we used very wisely…. 🙂 We did a lot of tracing at the kitchen table with the light box:
Last year we were blessed with a LOT of free Blocks of the Month. For ages we had been discussing playing around with some designs of our own, and finally came up with our final sketches. I started stitching them, and just need to scan the pictures into the computer and write up some instructions… and then…. you need to come back in a few days and start spreading the news… tra la la… a free block of the month… tra la la la….
Do you want a little peak?! Ok, bear with me, because my camera isn’t so good…. but here is a sneak peak:
My plan is to get the blocks out in the middle of each month, say, the 15th? Oh my, that is the day after tomorrow.. I’d better hussle 🙂
Enough with the catching up, I’m going to get the scanner out 🙂 See you again soon!!
