Getting things done

Today I was up and busy packing boxes at 8am...oh the joys of having an early rising DH!! But having said that it is amazing how much you can fit in to the day when you get up at a reasonable time!! After packing a few  boxes I ventured outside and did a little gardening and pruning of the roses....much easier to keep looking good if I go and do a little weeding every few days.  I spent many hours at the kitchen table cutting fabric for the Secret Shirt Challenge...shhhhh...can't say too much but...
you can find out about the Secret Shirt Challenge here at Tracee's blog.....can't say any more...secret shirt stuff!!
I have also received fabric in the mail for the CSSQ
love the batiks....now I have to draw a diagonal line of each one ready to make the half square triangles....
I was packing up some tins...I have several my mother used to send us with a fruit cake in at Christmas time...and found these
I think the boys are probably too old for these now ....lol!!  So they have gone......
hasn't it been a beautiful day today?? A bit windy here but beautiful sky and sunshine...the garden is looking good, unusual for this time of the year...by now it is usually dry and suffering. I have a treat in store tonight...I am off to have a sit and sew with Marg and Tracee, this evening Tania was supposed to be joining us too, but she isn't feeling too good today so is staying home. We will catch up with her next week.
Happy sewing.

Oh I nearly forgot...I have finished two Christmas decorations!! Yay!!
