Bloggers catch up...super photo heavy!!

I am in a Christmas postcard swap, organised by Sheila, my card is off in the mail to Canada..so only a tiny look until it arrives to preserve the surprise!!

Kim made me a beautiful cushion for my birthday, thank you Kim, it is beautiful!! 

Jasmine found the best place to sit on Shez's birthday quilt....yes we moved her off!!

Marg had the Christmas tree up and the swap gifts went underneath...our booking at the local quilt shop was mixed up so Marg stepped up and invited us all to her place.

some lovely Xmas goodies I was given from the girls

let the fun begin!!

and it did!! Lots of laughter and chatting, not a lot of stitching happened today!!
