Secret Santa

This is the gift I made for the Secret Santa Christmas Swap.

I can post it now because I know that Paula has received it , opened it and posted on her blog. She is having a cute Christmas trivia competition as well so check her blog out.

Christmas as left me behind again. I have written no Christmas cards and my tree has lights but no decorations yet. There is still shopping to do - why do I always leave it until the last minute? Maybe next year will be better.....I can only try.

Just in case I don't get to post again before Christmas Day ( I am going to try) I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a safe and healthy holiday season.

Where does time go?

I had such plans for November - but they didn't happen. No plans for December yet - I just have to get through it. Here's the state of my sewing for November - actually I do have it a bit further than this - I have all my HST's made and hoping to get it together ....soon. Thanks Marcie for a great pattern. And I made a mistake and made too many so I guess there will be a second one - but that will be fun because I can do a different version next.
My son thinks I am completely losing it here - ( he could be right , it is sooo hot that no one feels like doing anything) He saw me uploading the following photo and thought it was strange. But I wanted to show that a parcel arrived on Friday ( 6 days to Australia - Santa's sleigh must have turbo boost). It had come all the way from Sherry - Thank you Sherry! And thank you to Donna for organising the Secret Santa Christmas Swap. I can't wait to see all the things which were flying around the world to everyone involved in the swap.
