One Christmas Item a Month

Tomorrow is March 25 , One Christmas Item a month day and since I am going to visit my Parents I am posting a little early or just on time for our Aussies friends  .
I finished this stitchery designed by Kaaren of the Painted Quilt , I decided to make it fit my table stand although right now it is going in my Christmas box .Thanks Kaaren for your creative drawings , I love to stitch them :-)
I spent a lovely hour today at Lucy's Quilt shop where I met up with fellow blogger Lesley of the Cuddle Quilter blog . It seemed like I knew her all my life , she is a real sweetie just like she seems on her blog .She even came with a little gift for me , one of her handmade pincushions , I mean how special is this .
She had it all wrapped up in the sweet fabric with the red ribbon , I love it , thanks so much Lesley I will use it everyday . We had Sherry take our picture in the shop, Lesley on the left and myself on the right ,you probably figured that out since there are only two of us in the photo ;-) I really enjoyed our visit and hope to do it again real soon.
 Tomorrow is my Mom's birthday so I am going to surprise her with a visit , it has been a while since I was home and I know how much it will mean to her to have me there for her special day plus I am hoping my sisters and brother will also be  there . Happy Birthday Mom !!

 Thanks for stopping by and hope you are enjoying your weekend . Hugs Sheila
