A bit of everything today

 Not long now til Christmas, are you almost ready. I think we are. I'm having an early Christmas celebration next Saturday with my parents, they are coming over for a flying visit for 4 days so I thought as we won't see them on Christmas day we could have it early. I have to work all next week so in between household chores and sewing  I have been cooking meals and doing lots of baking.
 My hexagon table runner is home from Homespun Magazine, I have missed it. I sent it away back in May. Now it can rest on my kitchen table for awhile.

 I enjoyed making each and every stitchery on this project, they turned out so cute.

 I came across an old UFO in the cupboard so I am in the mood to work on that for a little while, I still have 3 stitcheries to go but I thought I could put together what I have finished.
 Its a 1950's quilt pattern from Orange Daisy. All the stitcheries are 1950's ladies doing their thing.
 Thursday night we had Jacob's grade 10 leavers dinner, he was so excited. He looks so handsome all dressed up. Of course i had to get a photo with him, he is the only son who likes getting his photo taken with his mum and dad. The other 2 grumble whenever I mention the word photo.
 This is Jacob and his partner for the evening Abby, she is a lovely girl, The flash car behind them was their transport to the venue.
 Jacob and his dad.
Jacob and Abby,  don't they look lovely. We had  to get a tie that matched Abby's dress and finally after  lots of looking we found the perfect colour.
They both had a great evening.
Not long now and school will be over for another year. This year has gone so fast.
I have been at my new job for almost 12 months now. I enjoy it alot.
I am looking foreward to a little break after christmas though. I have lots of sewing I want to do.

Well  the buzzer just went off for the oven  so I had better say goodbye , Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thankyou for stopping by.
