Wow!  Today's been a wonderful day!  Not only do I have a day off.  It's snowing!  (Though, it may be more significant to note that it is the end of November and this is really our first! snow).

Plus, I heard the front door open this morning, and look what I found!  Presents.

The first was a little gift from a very sweet neighbour.

The second is my SSCS parcel!  It made it's way over the ocean sooo quickly.  Can you see all the goodies that are calling my name?

The wonderful gingerbread man ornament!?  I have a real soft spot for gingerbread men at Christmas.  For me, it's one of the things that is really Christmas.  It may be because we grew up with a traditional Swedish song about three gingerbread men - tre peparkaksgubbar.

And, most importantly, who do I get to thank for all these lovely goodies??  The lovely Dawnie of a new to me blog - Itching for Stitching.

In with a Bang!

Wow!  I know, I can't believe it either!  I've actually finished something and it's still the beginning of the month.  Even more shocking is that I have 3! finished quilts to show.

Granted all three of them have been sitting around for a while just needing the binding...

To give you an idea of scale, the blue one measures 46 cm x 46 cm (18" x 18").

I also finished working on the SSCS.  (But I can't post that one until after Christmas)
