Sharing and catching up

I sat down last night and started working on my
"12 Days of Christmas" 
Cross Stitch from The Frosted Pumpkin

I plan on working on the 2nd square today.

Celebration Swap

Claire and I agreed to swap a flower Pin Cushion instead of the quilt block that was suggested.
Above is the cute flower Claire made for me. As you can see she totally spoiled me with some extras.
Huge thank you Claire.

Here is the Pin cushion I made for Claire and some Fabric for her to play with as well.

Our last item for this swap is Christmas. 
I cant wait to see what's inside the parcel under my tree.

 Lily's 2nd Ballet Concert

(A little colouring as we wait for our turn)

I love this kid so much.  It was such a pleasure to be able to share her 2nd Ballet Concert with her as a Backstage Helper for her class.  Not for one minute did I think I would get so much from such a special night. Don't get me wrong. It is lovely to sit out in the Theater and watch the performance but to be there back stage, share in the excitement before they go on stage and the pure joy that they all have as they come off stage.  That tight cuddle and the huge smiles. Priceless.

No more Ballet now until next year.

Better go, I have a mechanic to ring.
Silly car burst a brake hose today. So lucky that I didn't get to "meet" the occupants in the car in front of me.
But of course it's not just a 1 hour fix is it.  Fingers crossed the vehicle is back today.
