Back On Deck...

Well it's felt like a very l-o-n-g week, not signing in to my blog and seeing what's going on in blogland... hopefully no more lightning storms any time soon!! I clearly have some replying to do, which will happen later tonight. Susan you were right, I did enjoy doing some sewing that I would otherwise not have done!

I prepared most of the hexagons for Happy Christmas Cushion... amazingly, I had order quite a few of the Nancy Halvorsen fabrics & then only days later saw the cushion pattern... needless to say I ordered it on the spot! I think hexy's are going to be my go-to craft for this Festive Season...
I have also finished the first of the big stitcheries for the Polka Dot Girls quilt... & I have such a long way to go, sigh... This stitchery is for the block called "My Friends". I loved seeing it come to life with the addition of shading, knots & satin stitch.
There won't be a whole lot of stitching or sewing going on here in the next week or so, but then, it is Christmas very soon.
Seems everyone could do with some 'help' at the moment, so I called my fairy for you... she can cook, clean, organise, shop... whatever you need... even give hubbies really great gift ideas, LOL!
