HI everyone :) from a very dark mouse house this morning ..... its 6.30 am and I am wide awake .... sooo if any one is up too... pop over for a cuppa :)
I can't believe it is a week till Christmas day and I am waaayyyyyyy behind .... no decorations up ... cake not marzipaned, never mind iced but there is a good reason for this .... I can reveal the secret I have been working on as it has been received and she loves it .... woooo hoooo....
soooo cast your mind back a few months .... in the days when it was warmer and the days longer Lainey had a idea to make Sally 's 50th birthday on the 12th December a special one .... we had a wee chat or two and came up with the idea to make her a quilt .... so we sent out some emails to peeps that we knew between us, that knew Sally and asked if they could stitch a square and join in the fun and I would make up the quilt :)
and that my friends is what I have been doing .... the squares were all dispatched to the mouse house back end of October onwards and I had the wonderful job of coming up with a pattern that would work and I think I did .... (not bad for a beginner and this being only the second one I have made :)
There was a lot of organizing to make sure that a camera was on hand ... thanks to Sally's DD -Abi * waves small paw at ya the wonderful moment was captured :)
So with with great a plume and many thanks to .....Chris , Lainey , Gill, Gillie, Jane , Julie , June, Kate, Lesleyanne, Lisa , Michelle , Tina , Cath (and I) ..lol
If you bob over to Sally's blog you will see all the individual squares close up ... I forgot to take photos of each one DOH ...lol
It was sooooo hard to part with it soooo giving advance warning ... you have two years before mine hahahahahahah....
I have had a commission to make a memory quilt from this ... coooooo ...and also a few peeps have hinted they want one too ... but you will have to wait and see ;)
So I shall leave you all for now and I had better go and have some breakfast before work eeeekkkk ....
but before I go, if I don't see you before the big day .... hope every one has a wonderful time , get lots of gorgeous goodies and just to say there will be a few late parcels from the mouse house but I hope every one will let me off now for being late hehehehhe
Take care , happy stitching and how ever you celebrate this time of year enjoy :)
T.T.F.N as tiger would say ..... love mouse xxxxxxxx
