tis the season...

... for giving!

And in the spirit of the season, I had ordered some books for my dear friend, unfortunately the post is still disrupted because of the snow.  So, it was time to break out the emergency plan...


I little free motion quilting (sorry about the pic, it was late last night, and very dark)

+ Notebook =





 This morning the Teenage Diva and I were out early for a little retail therapy, and we both had lunch plans, so this had to come with me to be wrapped once I got into town and bought the wrapping!

I'm delighted to say, my gift was received graciously  :)  And a lovely lunch was had by all...

And then I got home...

to a good mail day!

(still several packages known to be missing, so I'm still eagerly awaiting the arrival of my Scrappy Mug Rug 2 from my swap partner, and the missing books!)

Tomorrow, a sewing day, more gifts to make (I have a cunning plan), Bee blocks to catch up on before the holidays, and my own month to plan.  And a little C&G to be done!

Oh, I had a wonderful e-mail to tell you about too!

Happy Quilting!

What a great present for your friend. Your quilting is wonderful. Oh, and all that post - I hope it was all nice and fun stuff not just unwanted circulars and mailshotts.

Wow, am envious of both your pile of post and of your friend who received that stunning notebook, beautiful quilting. Keep warm, freezing here again after yesterday's brief respite.
