Stitching away

Hi all...have been busy doing some Christmas sewing, which is great fun, but unfortunately I can't show you :) Have put a few decorations around, been playing a few Chrissy CDs at work...it's beginning to feeel a lot like Christmas!! I have also been doing an Advent swap with my partner , Pat from Narromine. I think that has made me feel a whole lot Christmasier ( don't think you'll find that in the dictionary...) by opening a present every day so far this month..it's been GREAT!!


Santa I made years ago, on the sliding door...


Vegie bed...made a salad yesterday with red and yellow tomatoes, basil, parsley, oregano and shallots :) Petunias are for colour, not eating.... ;)




My pride and joy...one of our "Little Gem" magnolia blooms. They are beautiful and scent the garden with a lemon-vanilla smell that's divine...
Hope your lead up to Christmas is not to hectic, I'm trying to be more organised this year with my hand made gifts, ie. not be fininshing them at midnight on Christmas Eve.....have a great week! Suze.

It must be great to make a salad from your own garden, well done. Dare I say it I seem to be on schedule too......of course that could all go out the window. You have a good week too.
