The countdown is on in earnest here as it won't be long till Santa comes.
Christmas preparations are under way .We have been shopping, shopping ,shopping and the gifts are finalised. The main gifts being for my 8 Grandchildren and other family. Now for the gift wrapping, cooking and the Christmas menu which I haven't decided as yet. Also sleeping arrangements for the family comeing from the country. 5 extra beds to make up.(My son and daughter in-law and 4 children). My daughter her husband and 4 children just live close around the corner from us .Then there is the extended families on Christmas day. A very big few days over Christmas. I think I had better hurry up and prioritize a few things around here No.1` no watching the cricket!!
There is plenty of fun things happening. Christmas parties to attend. Celebrating Christmas with our friends. A lovely time of the year.
Not much sewing happening. My big quilting projects I want to start can wait till the New Year. I am just doing some Dear Jane blocks when I can manage to be in the sewing room.
I have to admit the Cricket ( the Ashes between Australia and England) has me glued to the television this last week instead of doing my jobs!! hehe.
Our Tuesday class group had a combined get together Christmas party with the other day groups of the week. Some great people, great food and a great show and tell of some stunning quilts made by the ladies.
Show and Tell.
Amazing quilts. So inspiring to see. Looking close the detail is stunning and the lovely colour matched fabrics.
I received a lovely sewing set for my Secret Santa gift beautifully sewn by my dear sewing friend Kay. I just love it so handy and useful. I was so happy. Thank you Kay.
I want to thank you all who visit my blog you are truly appreciated.
I hope you all have a great week and will be happy and well.
