Yesterday I when to Ikea and picked up some additional storage for my sewing room, and have been avoiding putting it together all day. I don't think its going to put itself together so think I should maybe at least get a start on it.
Wishing everyone all the best for the new year.

Finished, just in time. This is my MIL Christmas gift. After seeing these on lots of blogs and made by a couple of girls at guild I decided that I wanted to make one for myself and one for my MIL. December is not the best time to try and get a quick project done. Well I finished one of these, so I guess that will be her and hopefully I will get mine done by next Christmas.
Hope every one has a wonderful Christmas.

This is the second time I have done a border round robin and this is the second time that for the last round the person before me has done a keyboard border, the only thing that I know that looks good after is a solid border.

Received my first Christmas card and realised that I hadn’t done anything about sending out my international card. Normally I am more organized than this. I think since I send the present for my family back with Mum when she was here to visit I just had not thought about sending anything else.
I did get these cards in the mail yesterday, along with my SSCS gift. Once I wrapped the SSCS gift, it looked quite small, but hopefully the person receiving it will like it.
I went to my first Christmas party last weekend it just seemed so early in the year. I am noticing that I am getting invited to a lot of Christmas party in the fist 10 days of December, but nothing after that.
Don’t think I will get much sewing done this week; we are going out tomorrow night for my birthday, which is not until Sunday, but it is more fun to go out on a Friday night than on a Sunday. On Saturday we have my company Christmas party. So will see how tired I am over the weekend.
Have a great week

On Friday I started the weekend with making PJ bottoms, and although they went together easy and quite quickly, I didn't enjoy making them, so I will stick to sewing quilts. I made all the bears paw for my SIL quilt. I think these are turning out great. I also did some hand work, and quilted the last table topper. Of course we had a shopping break on Saturday.Here is what I picked up. The flower fabric is to go with my purple tulips. I just love that I could find all the colours in one fabric. The only thing that could be better is if it had tulips into it. I guess it will be "Purple tulips in a flower garden", but I think that name would be too long. The pattern and batiks just wanted to come home with me.
I will share more retreat photos later in the week.

I just finished packing my projects to work on. I planning on spending most of the time working on my sister-in -laws wedding gift. I have lots of time, but want to get a start on it. As you can see these are not the colours that I normally work with, but I think she will like them. Thought doing this at retreat would be a good idea, as I would be less tempted to work on other projects.
Now I need to go pack some clothes, nothing like leaving it to the last minute.

I needed to finish something, so here are two of the table toppers I started last month. I keeping the green on for myself, so that's the one not finished yet. I had been thinking about giving one of these as my Secret Santa gift but have changed my mind, so I need to get started on what I going to do instead. My guide is having a sew day tomorrow, so with a bit of luck I should be able to get a bit done. I still need to pack up what I am tacking, or I won't get anything done.

When one of the girls in my guide was diagnosed (she is doing well), we made and donated this Quilt "God's Eye", it is a pattern she picked out. This was put together quilt quickly to get it done in time, so it was the first time I had seen it finished. It was nice that it was facing out into the mall, to get people to come into the store to look at the other quilts.
