Countdown to Christmas

Saturday, December 12, 2009
I've managed to tick a lot of jobs off the list this week in the countdown to Christmas.  The Campervan is packed ready for travelling the 2000 kilometres interstate to spend a couple of weeks with our family.

Priorities have to be right - so one of the first things I organised was what stitching to take with me!!!  Here are my "What is Love?" blocks ready to start - I told you the colours were quite different.  It is unusual for me to go for "brights" but I rather like this fabric and I am using variegated cotton for a change.

Then I'm planning to have another FREE BOM Pattern for you in the new year.  Pencil and paper have been working overtime and scanner and computer have been whirring away and all the blocks are now designed.  I am really excited about this pattern and have already fallen in love with it!

Of course I never have just one lot of stitching on the go at a time, so a couple of these blocks will be put into the sewing compendium with the hope of starting them too while I'm on holidays.  And I can't leave behind what I am currently working on, can I? .... so I should have plenty to keep me occupied in the unlikely event that I might have time to just sit and sew!

The Christmas pudding and Christmas cake have been made.

And the last of the presents have been finished:

So, in case I don't have an opportunity for another post before Christmas, I'd like to thank you lovely readers for being interested enough to follow my ramblings, for your kind comments, and for liking my designs!

I pray you will have time to think about the real meaning of Christmas amongst all the commercialism - "Jesus, the Saviour is born".

Happy Christmas and abundant blessings for the new year.
