I have had a crazy week with heaps of stuff occupying my space, especially work wise, but on a bright note my Secret Santa Christmas Swap arrived earlier in the week from New Zealand.

Im not sure who it is from but here is the lovely ornament that I was allowed to open:

The sweetest cross stitch mouse (the only type of mouse allowed in the house).

My other gifts are still in their box waiting for the Christmas tree to go up.

12" Mini

Shez has made me this delightful mini (I also borrowed her picture because my camera isnt charged).  I am pleased to say that he didnt end up like this on his journey here considering he arrived on Monday and it was something like 34 degrees!

My mini is on its way somewhere and should be there anytime soon!

Which one is your favourite?

I am part of the Christmas Mini Swap happening over at Cheryll's  and  I had a few ideas floating around in my head for what to make my secret partner.

Well I couldnt decide which one to make so I made three and will have to pick one to send.

Sitting and Stitching

Its Friday night and while there is no official Friday Sew In, Deb and I decided after enjoying a lovely Thai lunch that we both needed to just sit and stitch tonight.

We have both had a fairly hectic week and just needed some the therapy provided by stitching.

I am working on a couple of Christmas mini quilts and Deb was going to tackle a dolly bed - cant wait to see what that looks like.

Feel free to sit and stitch away with us tonight!
