Little Jacky's birthday

Our little man, Jack, turned one last week. How time flies. He loved his party! His brothers and cousin loved it too.

So inspiring to see what the class ladies have been making over the last few weeks. Roni has been very busy and has made this wonderful bag by using a gorgeous pattern by Anni Downs, found in the book, The Simple Life.

She has also finished this lovely canvas work decoration from the last Christmas stitching day.

 We really loved this cross stitch too. Just look at the tiny stitches used to make the little gifts and the reindeers.

 Lynda has been busy too and has made this lovely pin cushion for a gift.
 Lynne has continued her gorgeous stitching and has made up all these little cushions for gifts!

 Great to see Sally back at stitching on Wednesday night and especially to see her 12 Days of Christmas hanger! Just ready to hang up this year.

 Margaret has also finished this delightful hanging from a pattern my Marg Low and using beautiful buttons by Theodora Cleve.
 Paddy also brought along this amazing tea cosy she received for her birthday recently.

Update on my stitching

Oh dear Christmas is coming so there has been a little flurry of Christmas stitching happening. I have even been enjoying a little cross stitch. The little reindeers became these little decorations.
 I am still up to date with my Splendid Sampler blocks.

 Last week, I did make up one more Story of my Day blocks. I will try to make up one each week!

Lovely stitching

Great to see Lynn back at class. She has been so busy while she has been away. She has been enjoying lots of lovely cross stitch and blackwork.

 We all loved this special canvas work decoration.

 She has also created these great tablet bags for a friend. Lynn has used lovely fabrics and these will be so useful.

Lovely get together

On Saturday we headed to Camden for an extended family lunch. It was so special to catch up with all of these lovely people. Thanks to Neryl and Rod for hosting such a lovely time and for everyone for their delicious food. The Goss family certainly know how to party. Great to see Uncle Alan especially as he is nearly 93.
