I’ve been spoilt!!!

I closed my eyes this morning and rummaged under the Christmas tree to select my first parcel to open from Sharon  who is my FHF Swaps partner and I wasn’t disappointed!!! Look at the gorgeous project pouch I unwrapped.

I’m very impressed Sharon as you’ve managed to combine the two things I don’t like working with plastic sheeting and the dreaded zips! Now I have my own personal project pouch and to top it off Sharon has made this beauty with my favourite fabric designers Bonnie and Camille ooohhhh I wonder what tomorrow will bring?

Thanks Sharon you’ve made my day Smile

Today has also found me finishing up my November and December Charming Stars blocks that I’ve been sewing along with Terry I didn’t get a chance to even look at making any blocks for November as I had quite a few swap commitments I wanted to concentrate on but now they’ve been done and posted off I thought I’d better get a move on and finish a few more blocks before the New year arrived.

Rows one and two finally sewn together, now to start on making up the blocks for rows three and four SmileI’m hoping to at least get this top to the flimsy stage before 2015 but we’ll have to wait and see what I can accomplish while on my holidays over my Christmas break….
