Christmas is coming

Last night I once again joined with Wendy and friends for a night of stitching
Very pleased with what I achieved I made up a complete Advent Calendar
I was given the panel of pockets some time ago

In the past few days I have also made this quilt panel into a cot quilt for a new baby who will be joining our family around Christmas
Had a skin cancer taken off the back of my neck and have eight stitches
The Doc told me not to do to much with my arm for fear of splitting the stiches, so whats a girl  supposed to do but sew?
Hope everyone else had a great night too

Whats Under The Machine for FNWF

Once again a fun night of Stitching with Cheryll and the girls
I managed a little bit of stippling on this country quilt
Wasn't feeling the best so had an early night
Think I may have had a migraine
Never had one before and I hope I never get one again It was not pleasant
Hope the rest of my friends had an enjoyable night

This N That

A while since I have done any knitting
Years ago I used to spin my own wool from my own sheep
As time went on none of my family wanted home spun stuff so I sold my wheel
Recently I was asked to knit some beanies
I had forgotten how much I enjoyed knitting them
Luckliy I had spun up some wool before the wheel went

I finished a quilt for my great niece Amelia
She will be 11 at the end of the month
Hopefully she will like her quilt
I did some modelling for the CWA
Quite enjoyed it
Got to wear some nice clothes
Unfortunately my photographer did something Know idea what and this was the only one that
turned out
It seems that the Lorraine's Flowers runner from my last post has gotten lost in the mail
So disapointing
