Busy Days

Its been such a busy week with the lead up to Christmas, the boys are on the count down until school finishes for the year, they have 4 days to go. I'm counting to as then I won't have to rush around in the morning getting everyone ready. Earlier in the week my secret santa gifts arrived all the way from USA. Can you see the chicken ornament in the box, isn't he cute. I was allowed to open that gift now the rest are under our christmas tree.

I have also been having alot of fun every morning opening up a gift from my advent calendar swap, my gifts have come from Italy so its been very exciting. These are some of the beautiful things I have received so far,Thankyou Sylvia. I'm looking foreward to trying the wisper thread, I've never used that before.
And last but not least I found some sewing time, well ok, I always make time for sewing. I have started making this tumbler block quilt, I found a tutorial on Moda bake shop and then I saw a quilt made up on Christines blog so I had to join in the fun, I want to make it 18 rows long. I have only done 7 so far. I used all my navy and light reproduction fabrics. Its good fun. Well now its time to get my washing off the line so I'll say goodbye, have a good week everyone.
