Christmas!

Things have been busy here and today is the first day I have had chance to catch up with my blog reading and posting.
The first photo shows the dining room after its mega tidy! Usually this corner is piled high with fabric, quilts and works in progress. My main pressie can be seen on the top of the display cabinet - a wireless printer - DH has only just got it to work wirelessly as I am writing this. I am hoping that it will be very useful for my City & Guilds course. The tree, as every year, is decorated with my collection of TY teenie beanies. I was a big collector of these a few years ago!

This little cat tape measure is one of my favourite pressies!

And of course I got some new books!



I hope to improve my FMQ in 2009!

Saw this one at the FOQ in August - lovely folk art designs. I have just started to cut out a bag from a pattern in here using some Cath Kidston fabric and some recycled fabric.


And finally the book I have wanted for a while - still studying it but hope to do some practice blocks soon.
Hope Santa was good to you all!

Super books! Despite putting a couple of books on my Christmas list, I didn't get either of them. I did get a nice book from DD's new boyfriend, but that was the only quilty thing. (Suppose I'll have to get the books for myself!)
