What have l been doing??

Well l have been busy thinking up new ideas for the Christmas swap. So many ideas flowing through this sift l call a brain. Should write them down or draw a pretty picture at least.   Or do l stick to the tried and true never fail ideas.  Looking through the old mags /books fate ideas.  Glad the school hols are here so l don't have to stop for the school drop off/pick up.  Sending off the first parcel on Thursday all wrapped up. Hope my partner Illene is tempted but does not peek.  Do all the gifts have to have a Christmas theme?

Still have many boxes to unpack in my sewing room as cannot find everything.  Have purchases in my walk in robe l need to take out to the new studio. Need to keep all UFO's together.  A place to store my templates, threads, lace, ribbons the list just goes on. Hope l have enough room still need to get my cutting table in, spare iron for all that pressing.  Some where to hang those quilts and wall space for pictures etc.  Also need to make curtains for the windows, cushion for my rocker.  So l can sit and read my Mags in the library corner.  I am exhausted.


  1. I posted your sack this afternoon
    No I think the gifts can be anything you want Made or purchased and not necessarily Christmas themed
    Getting excited now

  2. Thanks Illene will keep a eye out for the postman. So exciting.

  3. Gifts are just for Christmas & they don't have to be themed for Christmas. Mine certainly aren't for my partner. Hugs,

  4. You can send anything you like Maddy. It doesn't have to be Christmas themed at all. Last year I gave and received a mixture of Christmas and non-Christmas goodies.

  5. Your sewing room is coming along nicely. Now that I have shifted DD's fishtank back into her room I might be able to set up my sewing corner again lol.
