Where has this week gone?

Hello everyone !! One whole week has past so quickly and I can't seem to get into my sewing room.
I will have a lot of catching up to do . Nothing that important happening that I have to go out for in the next few days. Thank goodness.
I miss being on here.
The round of Christmas celebration parties has already started and I seem to be out every second day for some thing or another.
Here is some of the small things that I have been working on. Nothing major at the moment.

 Christmas Table mat.

Lavender Embroidery.

These are Christmas Greeting post cards we quilted as a group to post in the mail to each other.
A fun project .They have wadding,cardboard,visafix in them with backing fabric and Christmas fabric  and sewn with the walking foot.

We made these with scraps of Christmas fabric and embelished them. Put them in the mail box with a stamp and they arrived as good as  new.

My Christmas tree decorated with the help of the neighbourhood children,They were so excited and were singing Jingle Bells as they were doing it. (2,4,6 yrs) cute.

Eastern Rosella.

 I put the Christmas tree up today with the lights and other inside lights. Tomorrow.  The outside lights will be put up  .So we are getting into the festive mood here.I just love Christmas!! I will leave you with this photo of two of the birds that are in the bush over from our front door.I enjoy seeing these birds ,they are so pretty.
My typing is jumping around on here tonight with a mind of its own as to where I try to place it!!
Happy Quilting                 Jen x

It is getting busier as we approach Dec 25. I love your projects, as always, but especially drawn to your group PC's. They are just lovely Jen. I am about to pop two in the mail today. Your Christmas tree looks wonderful too, and I never tire of seeing our parrots. Sadly, we don't see the Eastern Rosella here, but the colours are to die for. Cheers, and take care.
