Fee and I had our xmas lunch yesterday at a local hotel, can't go past Chicken parmy, chips and salad. It was scrumptious, especially with a Cascade Blonde great thirst quencher on a hot day. We exchanged gifts, Fee really spoilt me with a beautiful handmade pouch and needlecase
and two books I've been wanting to buy
now I can definitely part in Chookyblue's Stitch-a-long for 2011
but I do need to finish the Gardner's Journal top first.
Awhile ago I won a giveaway on "It's and Alien Life's blog" and in the mail arrived Punkin, she's so cute and is now feeling right at home amongst some of my other raggy dolls (She's the one in the middle!)
I was only allowed to open one gift and I must say I was blown away, Carol's stitching is so beautiful!
I feel so spoilt!! Thank-you Carol, I can't wait to unwrap the rest on Xmas Day!
My parcel was also recieved by Gai, also one of the Club Quilt Narromine Girls.
I haven't done a great deal of stitching the last few weeks, work has been happening around the home which has disrupted life a little.
Thank-you to my darling husband for the endless hours you have put in to getting the room ready for the installation of our brand new kitchen!
After Xmas we'll arrange the splashbacks and tiling but in the meantime we have hallway walls to paint and more cement sheeting to nail down. Oh and blinds to hang back up on the window and a corner to be fitted around the top of the cupboards.
That's our christmas present this year and I'm enjoying cooking in my new kitchen.
