Christmas fun has started.

 Only 2 more work days left and I'm on holidays. I can't wait, I have so much sewing planned. I have made a head start on a new design using some Tilda hexagons. I loved my blue tilda cushion I made with squares so I thought I'd  make something similar with these pretty hexagons.
 I really love the fussy cut tea cup fabrics, these fit in the hexagon just perfect.
 My on line stitching group I belong to has a secret santa advent swap every year, I still have no idea who my partner is, My gifts are beautiful so far. Todays gift is a cute owl tea infuser and some Melbourne tea. Can't wait to try it out.
 Yesterday I got the cutest sewing machine stitchery and a bobbin case.
 Here are the rest, all beautifully wrapped,
 My parents are here visiting us for a few days so yesterday we had an early Christmas Day together. Last night we had a beautiful roast turkey dinner and glazed ham. Good old mum is a great cook, These are the gifts I made for mum, a pot holder and a mug rug. Mum wasn't sure what a mug is so after I explained it she was quite happy with her new mat.
Today is dad's birthday so we are off for a BBQ at the local park and a good old fashioned game of family cricket.

Have a wonderful day. Hope you find some sewing time.
