Fun Few Days

On Saturday I went to a party to celebrate my friend's Dad's 90th birthday - it was a lovely afternoon and so nice to catch up with so many people I've known forever.

After the party Mum helped me finish off the Christmas decorating - 

Family Room
Family Room
"Christmas Belles" - my favourite Christmas quilt

The following day Robyn, Lynell and I went to IKEA - we were hoping to buy a couple of Christmas presents but came away with a bagful of shopping each and no Christmas presents.

Always a good day out with these girls.

Last Christmas I received one of the best presents ever from Helen.

A bagful of beautifully painted heads.

I made up one of the dolls straight after Christmas

Wishs Do Come True

and that was as far as I got till last night.  "Angel Gatherings" is finally underway

and I'm hoping to finish her off tonight.  She is so sweet and will look wonderful with all the other angels and santas in the loungeroom.

The Lori Holt Instagram SAL wallhanging is together - hoping that my backing will arrive this week so the wallhanging can be quilted and hung in the family room - there is a space waiting for it.

I've never seen anyone else's Christmas Belles quilt! I made mine as a B-O-M a few years ago now! And your latest Christmas quilt is lovely too!

What a wonderful few days you have had! Love all your Christmas decorations. I am not doing anything this year as we will be away and I cannot face packing it all away when I get home. You were lucky to have your Mum. How generous of your friend to gift you those delightful doll faces. You are doing a grand job adding bodies.
