Busy Little Elf :o)

We all know it's the silly season and this year I feel very relaxed about it all,
fingers crossed I've not forgotten something or someone.
Here is a round up of what has been happening here over the last little bit.
I have finished the needle turn applique of the Vines on my Lancaster Quilt.
Now to think about the Flowers
Hope your sitting for this one :)
I have finished the needle turn of the centre hears on my Vignette Quilt.
I am not going to add the centre circle as I felt it was getting a bit crowded and
my centre seams meet nicely :)

Advent Swap
Here are some more gifts that I have received from Carol in Fee's Advent Swap.
I am being totally spoilt, thank you Carol and I do apologise for getting the order
a little mixed up. My helper (aka Miss Lily) and I got a little excited :o)

LOVE the Anni Downs book mark and check out the wine glass, the base lights up
and changes colour. I took it for a "test drive" last night :o)
Carol, you may also notice that we got stuck into the Toffee's and the Liquorice
 before I took the photos.  They were yummy, thank you.
And here are some more of the gifts that I sent to Carol.

I also got a little bit busy yesterday and made some treats for the kids at a
Christmas Party we were going to.


Melting Snowmen are fun and easy to make

Some of theme took their job title just a little to seriously though.

None came home so it is safe to say that they were a hit.

OK, I had better go. Have to lock myself in the bedroom and be a Busy Elf and
finish wrapping some pressies.  Have a great weekend.

hugs, Sharon
