Friday Night Sew In Results…..

DSCF7995

Friday night saw me putting the first block together for my niece’s 21st birthday gift, here they are all laid out ready to be sewn together.

All finished, now to get started on making the other eight blocks up over the next few weeks….wish me luck Smile

I also had a lovely visitor descend via Aussie Post yesterday but I’m very happy to say he’ll not be leaving anytime soon…….well really NEVER!

Yes I was the lucky gal who snaffled up “The General” from Keryn after our Mill Rosie retreat…..he had to go home with Keryn after the retreat was over as she still had to finish off his boots, isn’t he just gorgeous and of course I couldn’t hide him away till Christmas so he’s nice and comfy sitting on my bed till it’s officially December 1st which really isn’t that far away SmileThanks Keryn I LOVE HIM!!!  and if you’d like one like him or something similar or Christmassy pop over to Keryn's blog and have a look at her “shop” page at the top, you wont be disappointed and her customer service is fantastic!!

On another subject I’m still wanting to send the Travelling Treasures off to someone new so if you’re interested just read and comment on my previous post to enter for the draw being held on the 20th of November.

You are a clever girl. Your new rug is beautiful. What a lucky niece! The General looks very at home at your place x

Your niece will just love her present and I am just tickled pink that The General went to live at such a wonderful home. A mother always feels better when her children leave home and she knows they will be happy where they are going..
