Shopping at Leura

Sunday saw the kids I and do a quick dash to Sydney for sporty to attend a cricket clinic. Our day came to a screaming holt when a storm hit the cricket nets. Quickly we jumped back into the car and headed for home. As usual the kids spent most of the trip home sleeping, however with time to think I decided that I might call into a few of my favourite shops in Leura.
First stop was Rick Rutherford's Country Concept Store and you wouldn't believe it I ran into someone from home - just goes to show you can't go anywhere!!

Wow what a jam packed little shop - I just couldn't decide what I wanted the most!
I finally decided on this cute little angel

Next stop was the Christmas Cottage -
here a brought a few other goodies for my tree  

and a cute wooden ' Christmas' sign - I love the star Santa at the end.

I hope you are all enjoying the festive season

Progress ' In my Garden' - Block 8

Last night saw me finally putting together block 8 of 'In my Garden'. I completed the applique a few weeks ago , but just hadn't gotten around to putting it together.

My dearest friend Sam (A cup full of Stitches) is coming to visit at Christmas and has set me a challenge to have the quilt top finished - no sleep for me for the next weeks as I try to get it all together.
I do work better under pressure.. LOL!!

Yesterday saw my work Christmas Party - with only 3 of us (all working mum's) our boss decided that after the busy year we have had, we deserved to be pampered!! Gotta love it :) 

Pretty Nails - ready for the festive season!

I thought I'd share our Christmas Tree with you because I love seeing what other people put on their tree's.

Every year I usually by a new decoration for our tree - this year I made them!
Another 'Anni Downs' design - these little pears are from a wall hanging but I thought that I'd just hang them on our tree.  
I hope you are having a great week

Until next time - Happy Stitching xox

Christmas is in the air

Thursday night saw our household getting into the Christmas spirit.
 All the boxes came out the cupboard and the excitement grew.
However I found my '12 days of Christmas' wall hanging still unfinished packed neatly in a box. I went looking for my DMC threads and realised why it was still unfinished - no thread left!
Friday saw a quick trip to my local patchwork shop to get some thread and Tah Dah! a finish. 
I hope you are having a great weekend and find some time to do a little stitching!  

Until next time - Happy Stitching xox
