Ladies in Tasmania went to a recent sewing day & made this lovely pattern of Leanne's House. Of course as soon as i saw it i had to have it too. :)
I took part in an ornie swap in a group i'm in on Yahoo & this is the gorgeous ornament i was sent by my partner. Isn't it just the cutest mouse in a stocking.
My friend Joy emailed me the other day to see if i was free for lunch today. You bet i was :) So before lunch we went out to Rose Patchwork Cottage for fabric therapy. Here's my selection
Some more fabrics for the Civil War Quilts & lovely spotty fabrics for who knows at the moment & a lovely green/cream piece covered in little stars. Also bought is some lovely pink sandcastle fabric
Not sure what i'll make with it yet. Joy & i had a lovely lunch at the local hotels fabulous eating establishment. Thanks for the great company Joy. Oh & i guess you want to know about my finishes? well they are a secret for the sscs swap so i can't tell you a thing about them just yet until the are sent off to ???? in ?????

Ooooo i'm so excited & don't know how i'll wait until Decmber 1st before i can start opening my Advent gifts from Jenny. The lovely parcel man just delivered this to my front door. Just as well my son heard the man before me or the parcel man might have got a shock at my excitement. Now if only he would be kind enough to deliver my Angel gifts to me which seem to be still wandering to post offices of the world & 2 books which are on back order.Hugs, Jeanette
