Another Christmas over.
We are all very quiet here today, enjoying the pool and the Boxing Day cricket game between Australia and India. DS was up as I wnt to bed at !.30 am Christmas morning wanting to open presents....knew Santa had been as he had heard his hooves on the roof1 took some talking to get him back in until almost 6. Hardly seen him since...or his father...as he (or they!!) got a big remote controlled J. Deere tractor for Christmas!
Christmas day was wonderful, we catch up with both families as mine are only an hour away. By 9 am we were in the car and down to my sister's, then back by 2.45 pm for Chris Cringle swap with DH's family then stayed on for tea.
I am sharing my quiltier presents with you, I did very well in that department, first here is my SSCS from Gudrun, doesn't it match my couch well! It is fabulous and I love it, some Playing cards from the Iceland Museum accompanied it-I will be ensuring they are not used by DS for '52 pickup'!
My sister had me in my family Chris Cringle, I like it when she has me, we both love buying the right present. She wont tell me where she found this fabulous picture but it is already hanging in my kitchen.
She also found me this trinket box.....I think she will get a photo book for her birthday filled with my pics of her lovely children after that shopping effort.
My lovely DH's niece also managed to find me a quilting book I didn't have. It has great pictures.
Last but not least is this great Angel bag my friend Susie mailed me from WA, I posted pics of these for her, not realising I would actually get one! Thanks Suse...hope you got your mail.
The other things are ones I found for me and the kids wrapped. DH felt his work was over with the quilting frame and I wouldn't argue that!
More Northern Exposure to fill my quilting hours, a mousepad quilting calendar...may actually make me realise what day it is if it is attached to the computer!-and the 2008 block a day calendar. I love these and they give fabulous ideas.
Fot those whose day is not quite over, enjoy, Tracey
