2016 nearing it`s end

Hello my friends,
this year has gone quite quickly.
We have had a busy month with little family staying
at weekends and now the Christmas to New Year for 10 days.
The last few days I came down with a tummy bug.
Not nice:(
Thank you Chookyblue for having SSCS 2016.
I sent my gifts to Tracy:
This table topper ,a cute Xmas cushion and of course 
a ornament of a snowman with a Koala bear .

My gift sent to me was this table runner with silver border and binding
from Lisa. 

Some of my other gifts where:
This sewing machine pad, herbal tea and Santa ornament
from my friend Kath.
I do like Log Cabin pattern.
I hope to make next year a curved Log Cabin quilt.

A close up of Santa ornament on my tree.

One of my sisters swap gifts with me. This year we decided on
an ornament:
I really love mine. :)

And a kitted project to work on.
The fabric was part of the wrapping but to be used as borders.
Cottage Garden Threads :Mistletoe,
Rosalie Quinlan pre-printed linen/pattern with 
backing for stitching. :)
This is on my to do list.

Katrina gave me a lovely Angels ornament no photo yet.
Plus these : Lizzie Kate `Joy to the World` pattern with
fabric and little button,stitched cushion, stitched bird ornament
and a lovely zipped bag.  

One of my no blogger friends asked me to quilt this lovely
wall hanging for her . She was pleased with the finished piece.

Before I got sick I stitched this,
hope to make up as a star once little family goes home on the 2nd.

Have a good evening my friends.
With a baby in the house we will be heading to bed before 
midnight. :)
Happy Stitching,
