For *me*

I received LOTS of bits and pieces this year for Christmas - perfume Sex and the City 'Kiss' (which when opening I nearly freaked, thinking it was cd's of Kiss the group.... They used to scare me as a kid lol), sewing bits and bobs, lip balm and chocolates, chocolates and MORE chocolates lol! My brother and his wife Kate even bought me The Lost Quilter! I am looking forward to reading that, as I enjoyed the first 3 I have read!

Mum and Dad gave me the kit to make these lovely cushions in Nicey Jane fabrics! Quite modern for me, but I really liked Nicey Jane! And she forgot to bring some Bliss flannels she had for me! I hope she sends it, as I am really, REALLY, loving this quilt!! Must find my pattern!

And, Dennis gave me some battery operated salt and pepper grinders which I have been nagging about - slightly! They even have a light in the bottom to see where you are putting it! What next lol! And, he also gave me this beauty! I can now play the music from my iPhone with it while sewing away! Cool!


It has been great having Mum and Dad visit from QLD! As you can see, Mum has been sewing quite a bit with me (I managed to finish a Xmas pressie today - this years lol), and she even had a play with my quilting frame!!


I bound it for her last night (aren't I nice lol), took it round to where she is staying ready for her to hand sew down, only to be told she didn't have any cotton...... lol
