Be warned I am going to mention that "C" Word

There is a little bit of the festive season sneaking up on you in this post - Be warned :o)
Have you noticed some little changes?
Christmas themed changes?
I have added a little Christmas counter up top and
what do you think of the little alteration to my header?

Christmas is also being planned for in our home,
Yesterday we rearranged the lounge room in readiness
for the Christmas tree but don't worry it wont be going up until
6 weeks before Christmas :)
There is also some Christmas Sewing happening that I can share.
First up is the stitching that I had planned for Friday night that I finished last night.
Block 9 of  Merry Merry Snowman.

The plan for tonight is to work on Block 8 and then sit back and wait for the final
instalment later this month which is borders then to think about the quilting.
I would love to have it finished and up on the wall this year.
Fingers crossed.
Here is a sneak peak of the 12" Mini that I am working on for the above swap.

It is a secret swap so it's safe to post here.
Are you in this swap?
Maybe this one is for you :)
Advent Swap
I have finalised all the gifts.
Have them wrapped and labelled.
Just need to box them up and get them ready to post later this month.
Hoop-la-la Swap
I have finished this one also but can't show you much more than this at the moment.
I hope that my partner likes the use of two hoops.
OK, should stop playing with my new toy and do something a little
more constructive :o)
hugs, Sharon.
