How does it come around so quickly !
It only seem like 5 minutes since I was rushing around choosing and buying gifts. Thank goodness for Amazon and the Post Office, because there is no way that I could get the diverse types of gifts that my family ask for in Devon alone.
Where do you do your Christmas shopping? I might have to try New York one year, have you tried it?
So far this week I have been trying to finish off some things that I have in my UFO pile.
The first to be completed is a Patchwork Origami Wreath. This is based on the Christmas tree decorations that you have probably seen. It should be quite easy to make , however once all the little shapes were completed no amount of shuffling and re-arranging would give me the shape I was after. A phone call was needed followed be a lovely lady in Cornwall who posted me her instructions. I can never get over how generous fellow stitching folk are.
Here is the finished wreath , with sparkly beads – because I had to!
I have also finished all the stitching and appliqué on my Lynette Anderson Favourite Garden quilt. I just need to get the buttons on and stitch it together. this has got to be finished for Christmas.
I have also all but finished my shadow appliqué needle case that I began a couple of weeks ago. I just need some coloured felt for the inside leaves of the holder.

Next week I have two further wreaths to finish, a bag to make for my sister and another for my grand daughter.
