Christmas here we come ready or not

I joined in Vicki and Jenny's quick FQ swap. I sent my parcel to Jan in USA and received a lovely package back from her. What I sent Jan is on top and what I received from Jan is below. Have you checked out the Among the Gumtrees they are doing some great freebies during Advent.
The tree is up, decorated with help from Lily, the presents are still being made - I am making 3 of the 'Audrey and Maude' Christmas bauble quilts, 2 of the tops are finished I just don't think that they will be quilted before Christmas though. I will have a few months grace on these as one will be going into a home being built and the other is heading to Mildura where DS Josh and DIL Jaclyn are moving to in the new year to work.
I have made the Blue Lagoon quilt top out of Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott, I used Snippets by American Jane and this is probably going south to Melbourne for DD2 as her Christmas present. We are trying to do handmade this Christmas so for me that only leaves DS2 who has his 23rd birthday on 23rd December, DH Steve who has his 54th birthday on 9th and Lily who I still have to decide what to do for.
Well it has taken me a couple of weeks to get to a second post but I am starting to get the hang of it..... till next time Sue

First post

Ok so I have finally given in to having a blog.
I have been reading blogs since Kate and Graeme went to London in 2006, when they kept a travel and whats happening to them overseas. This also included "squishy's" alias Lily Dorothy born June 2008 in London.
I want to share some of the stuff I do and make. I love patchwork, making bags, embroidery and cross stitch.
I want to share my journey in the world of blog and craft, I have learnt so much from reading other peoples blogs over the last couple of years and look forward to reading what is going on in your lives each day.
I am looking forward to doing another Bonnie K Hunter mystery or challenge as she is now calling them and can't wait to see what it is.
