The fabrics in The Wish Quilt are "Yuletide Blessing", an older Fig Tree range. I had a small f/q pack of the fabrics in my cupboard and Peg sent me a f/q bundle as a surprise birthday present a few years ago and they were different to my fabrics, so they all went together beautifully.
I've been having all sorts of issues with my machine embroidery. Last year I started a Christmas tablecloth but only got halfway. Decided to finish it off for this Christmas as everyone will be home and it's been a nightmare. Thankfully it's now finished and I'll be able to put a salad bowl or something over the trouble spot.
These lace ornaments have been much more fun to stitch out.
Last Saturday we went to the Garden Restaurant at the Sydney Botanic Gardens for lunch with Michael, Peta and Peta's Mum and Dad. This is where the wedding reception will be held next April - a beautiful restaurant, delicious food and wonderful setting for a wedding.
