Woe is me!!!

I am sitting here feeling very sorry for myself with a streaming cold when I wanted to be out Xmas shopping. So instead I have spent the day making mini- Xmas stockings for my daughter for her end of term party at the out of school club.  They are a new pattern from Heather Duff at Kiwi Kreations  She produces some lovely designs and these have stitched out really well.  Still have a couple more to do

Last weekend we had a lovely Xmas lunch at my quilt group and we all decided it would be good to try and get away on a weekend together so I have been busy organising it this week. We have secured a booking for April and so far 11 have committed to going so it should be a good weekend.

I have completed another two quilt tops-the Irish Chain Rose quilt  and the country style scrappy so that means I have 3 ready for quilting so as soon as I have finished all the Xmas bits and pieces I will have to try and get them quilted and finished.
I added an appliqué border of vines and flowers. 

My Santa sack exchange arrived from Linda -it's a Santa Sock with lots of lovely squashy parcels which I have to wait to open !! 

 So I hope I feel better quickly or my shopping will really be last minute as I still have a few things to get for my son and his girl friend before they arrive home next weekend. !!!
Thanks for stopping by
