Some Sewing!

Yesterday Noel took Mitchell and Nelson up the country to collect wood. Austin stayed home with me as he wasn't feeling 100%. So while they were working hard collecting this, I was working hard sewing for the present drawer!
 A couple of mug rugs.
 
Thread catchers!
There was also a fair bit of secret sewing going on but of course I can't show you that yet!
Last week I received a surprise birthday package from Leona of Leona's Quilting Adventure. A fat quarter of the prettiest fabric, along with some needles. Thank you Leona for your lovely gift.

Such a lovely present and fabulous goodies for the Christmas pressie basket.
Sometimes I forget to say thank you so much for your friendship - so I'm taking the opportunity now. Thanks for everything, Christine. You are very important to me.
