Now; I've got the label there, if I've done it right you should be able to click on it and arrive safely at Daisy Quilts. If not it's linked to 'Daisy Quilts' above. See what happens. Oh, and I've had another signup for my PIF. Yay! Welcome to Ulla from Ulla's Fibre Blog. I'll have craft jetting off to Sweden, how exciting. Room for one more yet...

Here we have an approximately 8ish year old ufo. Despite the previous list of to do's I decided that I wanted to indulge in a little bit of Christmas stitching and dug this up and finished it. Considering the short amount of time it took to finish and how nice it looks; it's a shame I didn't dig it up sooner. But anyways; I'm pleased as punch to be able to hang it up for this Christmas.
I have an Aunt who has even more UFO's than I have, as a matter fact I have very few in comparison. I might just send her a photo and challenge her to have a dig too. Anyone else up for the challenge?
I was also pleased to have Kris from Quilted Simple sign up for my PIF. I was beginning to feel a wee bit neglected so I was very happy to hear from Kris. I'm still open for two more lovely people to join in. If not I might just have to make my own choices and surprise someone with a gift.
Till next time .......... happy stitching!

So, how does this work?
Well, for the first 3 people who will post a comment to this post, I will make you a lovely handmade gift each.
But, you must have a blog yourself, and be willing to pass the 'pay it forward' concept on. So you will then have to put it on your blog and make three gifts for other people.
Let's spread some happiness and have some fun!
So the rules state that I have 365 days (ample time!) to make a gift in. I'm more than happy to send something internationally - so everyone can be involved!!
What better way for everyone to join hands around the globe and share our crafty goodness!!!So... get typing, leave a comment and even if you aren't in the first three... it doesn't hurt to start your own chain of PIF's
So, I wonder who will be my 3 PIF recipients???
Alright, so I got the rules but not the picture! You can't have everything can you. But anyway, you all know what I'm talkin about, so I'd love someone to join in, just to prove I have visitors occassionally.

This week has found us sweltering here. We have had some welcome rain but feel for our fellow Queenslanders who are almost being washed away. It has also been the last week of school for my oldest who has finished year 12 today. He's hoping to get into university next year. We hope sincerely that he can fulfil all his dreams and do well in life. As a Mum, I'm feeling a bit emotional about it all. Not sure why - fear of the unknown, getting old, just being silly I guess. He's still here, won't be going anywhere for months yet, so I guess I might get used to it. Have to make the most of our time. But in the mean time, while he's off to a party, I have to rely on my friends. I'm looking forward to hopefully spending some valuable stitching time with a valuable friend tomorrow.
For now - I might have to turn off the computer. The lights are inviting in bugs; perhaps a sign of more rain to come. I'm certainly not enjoying them crawling on me - and some of them bite!

And here's my little angel who is leaving me today to wing her way off to ??? as the third project for my stitcher's angel swap. I have enjoyed participating and am now looking forward to receiving my parcel in the mail. Thanks to Helen for organising the swap and also the ladies for their patterns they have shared with us. Best get busy on my ALQS2 swap quilt next; or that deadline will be here before I know it.

sent me all the way from USA. It makes me wonder how many quilting bloggers there are out there. In the three swaps, I have joined, all of my partners, either sending or receiving, are new to me. Despite the ever growing list of blogs I visit. What a great way to make new friends and share craft and happiness. If only the real world could be so friendly and happy. Caryn has also made me an extra bag which holds a miniature cutting mat so it all fits in for some portable stitching. What a great idea. Thanks so much Caryn, I will thoroughly enjoy my bag. And here's the bag and matching card I made for my partner Kim, also in USA. I hope that Kim gets as much enjoyment out her bag as I had making it for her.
