A Catch-Up!

 I'm partnering Maria in the 2011 Santa Sack Swap and my sack is certainly filling up.
 
 Last weekend was the Whittlesea Agricultural Show and 
I had some success.
 I got a Highly Commended for my Taste of Christmas hanging.
 I also got a second for Austin's Starry Sensation quilt.
 I couldn't decide which Butterfly Garden cushion to enter into the show so I entered both. They both received Commended certificates.
I joined Melody at the Teddy Bear's Picnic last month and she sent me this lovely little parcel. The cutest teddy scissor fob (made by Melody) and some yummy ladybird chocolates. Have a look at the cute card she made out of yo yo's. Thank you Melody. Melody holds a Teddy Bear's Picnic on the second Thursday of each month. Why don't you come along too!
On the sewing front, I've finished the last of my Santa Sack gifts but of course, I can't show you any of that! I've been stitching my Tis The Season and another stitchery by Rosalie Quinlan. But I can show you what I worked on yesterday. Eight more hangers, some for me because I don't have any myself (I keep giving them away)!

Congrats Christine, lovely work. It's years since I've been to the Whittlesea Show - we used to go down there when we lived in Kinglake when our children were small (now they are all in there 20,s - how time flies by) :)
