a sigh of releif



I LOVE starting new projects. . . . I really do, just like every other quilter/sewer i know. . . . . and i have lot's of projects on the go . . . . .but what i also really love is finishing projects. . . . . .

I love that sense of achievement when something is finished and i can say . . i Made that . . . . . . .  it's finished I also love that amazement when i look at the top of my sewing cabinet and go wow that's right that's the colour of the cabinet . . . .as the mountain of projects have magically disappeared. you see i need to confess that i have a very annoying illness, i need things to be tidy. . . .  yeh i know, i know . . . . . but i can't help it i just really like a bit of order, it makes me feel good . . . .

so now your thinking i am going to have heaps to show you . . . .  nope can't show you yet. . . .  it's secret stitching , I have been very fortunate to be part of Chookyblue's secret santa swap for 2012





these lovely wrapped parcels are on Santa's sleigh heading for an overseas destination


these were posted yesterday, yeh a little late . . .i have an excuse though . . . .you see i was sleeping when the Santa's sleigh office was open . . .  like a vampire i wandered the earth at night, and slept during the day ( yeh . . . i have been on Night duty once again) that's why i didn't make it to the blog meet in Bathurst, and also why my parcel was a little late getting onto the sleigh. But the lady at the sleigh office assure's me that my parcel will arrive at it's destination by the end of the week, so i am happy

so now i just need to wait for my sleigh to arrive . . . .

i have been doing some other stitching as well, nothing really amazing just some christmas scrubs for work


just need to do the hem, i must say i have enjoyed making this top so quick to put together


which is good because this material is also about to be clipped, pinned, tucked and stitched into a scrub top as well . . . . 



that's enough from me for now, i am thrilled my secret stitching is over for a while, now. I like having something to show and tell on my blog

Hope your hands are working on something that you love

Ciao

your sleigh has arrived Patricia, thank you so much, I adore the gorgeous embroidered heart@@@@ and I have left the other parcel unopened... made easy by the fact that I will be in Perth for the next 12 days!!! Thank you!
