Christmas Mini Quilts

...sent and received.  The last mini quilt swap for the year was a Christmas one.
I received one from Sue which featured poinsettia flowers with a beaded centre.  It reminds me so much of Christmas and the poinsettia that Mum had growing in the back garden in the old family home.
Thank you Sue!
I was making for Sue, which was quite convenient because we happen to live in the same town.  My time management skills at this time of the year have been a little bit off and Sue waited patiently for my gift to her to arrive.  (I was in contact with her to let her know).  I made a Gail Pan pattern, sized for the 12 inch square that we are all making.

This time of the year is always hectic at work..and there are now just 3 days till the end of the school year.  Phew!!
I  traced out another stitchery of the basket of flowers that I made for the Spring mini quilt I have 2 weeks to stitch it as a gift for Mum before I head over to Sydney to spend Christmas with her...just the two of us.  My husband is off to see the orthopaedic surgeon tomorrow for his 6 week check up following his hip operation.  His progress is really going ahead now.
The sun is shining outside...finally...and the washing and a few chores are I'll get on to them and reply to some overdue emails that need my attention later today.  I haven't forgotten.  After 3 interruptions, while I have been writing this post, I'd better finish it off and get it published before there is another one.
Happy Stitching
