Deliveries and some stitching

The post man was very kind this week and brought me this lovely book by Gail Pan. It is just gorgeous, Gail.
 These lovely fabrics arrived in the post a little while ago. Thanks so much, Gail. Can't wait to play with them.
 I also ordered this gorgeous book by Wendy Williams. It is so beautiful!
 I have been stitching away at my table mat by Lynette Anderson and have now prepared the outer edge. Needs another iron and then the top appliqued in place.
 As we are working on this book, Stitch it for Christmas, next term, I started the cushion as well. Any excuse to stitch Christmas things.
 Yesterday I was very busy and made Herbie and Percy, the helicopter and plane, from a pattern by Melly and Me. They were a bit of a fiddle but are very cute. They are part of the little men's birthday gifts.

I am getting a bit excited about next week as I am off the Sydney to work on the Be Be Bold stall at the craft show! I will be there each day except Sunday, from 9.30 till 2.30. Hope you come and say hello!

You've just reminded me I want to buy Gail's new book. Those aeroplanes are just soooo cute and I'm sure the boys will love them and you can never be too early to start on Christmas items in my book :) Barb.
