Giving and Receiving....

I received a couple of special gifts for Christmas....

A new quilting book...


which I am really enjoying reading!



and this sweet embroidery!

And I gave this Art Folder...


to a friend, made with a tutorial by Thimbelina.

Finally the "Dog's Breakfast" quilt is being donated....

I made this in 2011, but have never had the energy to complete it!

to the Tasmanian Bushfire Appeal, written about here!


Right-o, I'm off to work the first day of the tennis!
