Essential buys and another block

 Its always nice to get little parcels in the post especially when they are wrapped like a pressie .... "Cat' n Cart Crafts" make buying very special.
These goodies are of course essential buys so that makes it okay... more dolly bits and bobs.
And yes its another block done, its so good to be motoring along with this quilt.
It has taken me a while to get going but there's no stopping me now.

Being naughty and a finish.....

Oh dear I was a bit naughty today but I just couldn't help myself ......hehehehehe...... I do so deserve it I think. I went to the "Southside Antique shop" and bought these lovely little dishes and now to my excuse, I have a plate with this pattern and seeing these 2 dishes on facebook I just had to have them..... as you do ......
Aren't they sweet ?
My big finish is one of Annie Smith's dolls of course..... called "Dear Santa", on Saturday's I meet with a few friends we make dolls and do a bit of stitching ..... Norreen's Santa on the right and the other is mine Sandi's Santa is on her blog, our next doll is a snowman, he will make his debut in a few weeks.

Its nice to get a finish for OPAM.... I have a few new Christmas decorations this year so it will be great to put on display.

"Earl Grey" news and a finish......

Today I took my quilt "An Earl Grey Moment" to the quilt lady but it will be quite a while till it returns as she is so busy, I'm very happy to wait to get it finished.
"Christmas Fun" is now finished so that's an OPAM for this month, its a cute little wall hanging.
For those of you who know me well......
"its not finished till it has a label"
So here it is.
"My Favourite Things" quilt is coming along very slowly although the end is in sight if I put my glasses on hehehehehe. Can't wait to get it done as it really is a bit of a struggle for this quilt..... not sure why but it just is.
Think that's all my news for today so happy stitching everyone.
