I wasn't expecting to get the quilting finished today. There was a quiet few hours however in the middle of the day.
This is where it gets exciting! Just the border left. Should be completed tomorrow.

Op Shop treasure

It has been a great week for Op Shop treasure! DD came home with  a reportedly 100 year old Australian made ukulele. 
 I found two Royal Albert 'American Beauty' plates to go with the trio on my dresser. 
DD brought me a fabulous book on Vikings by Neil Oliver. It was A great read!

Sewing for Christmas

We will of course be giving books and fun things, but I wanted something home made in the Christmas parcels. 

This is a tiny skirt and top for my grand daughter. I got the pattern from an op shop. I loved the fact that the pattern pieces were carefully pinned together by the previous owner. Nothing missing! 

The neckline of the top gave  me some problems but I think if I were to do it again I would know how to do it better. 

A bandana or three for my grandson, by request.
