Funny colours! Those pink squares are not so pink in real life.
I finished the snipping on Mr 11's quilt yesterday, which was a very good thing because he had already been using it, he was so keen to have it! I spent yesterday evening stitching some more Christmas dekkies. One of Miss 25's friends popped in and sewed with us, making a star to take home to make her place more Christmassy. (You can see her star in the photo below.) I can't show you exactly what I was stitching last night, because some things just have to be secret! (Especially when you are involved in Chookyblue's Secret Santa Christmas Swap!) There is quite a bit of secret sewing going on here at the moment! Christmas is a wonderful time! I was going to start decorating for Christmas yesterday, but just didn't get that far. Then in conversations with two of my Adelaide kids discovered that they had both begun Christmas decorating already! I felt proud. I have taught them well! Don't know if I will get to the decorating today or not. I have lots of chauffeuring to do today. (Some days are like that when you have kids.) And some secret sewing. (Shhhhhh!)

Another star!

Kris, I am so jealous of the time you spend at home. I seem to be at work more now that Bri has finished school (no excuse to leave and pick her up from the bus!). I am definitely putting 'a week off' on my Christmas wish list!

Love that star! And the quilt - the material is so cool for a young man!

There is lots of secret sewing going on everywhere me reckons. I've got secret sewing going on for my first ever swap and I'm excited. Can't wait, but I can't post pictures till the swap is over. I really like your stars and I love that quilt.
