Christmas is just round the corner

My good friend Amanda gave me this lovely Christmas gift a bottle of local organic olive oil inside this cute little bag which fits my most carried possession, my aluminium water bottle.
Such a useful gift I love it.

Gift from Amanda

A couple of gifts for myself from myself.
I love Paddington Bear - with this.............. I get a case and a quilt top all in one.
This is in anticipation of being a grandmother one day.
Gemma's only response was don't tell Sean!!!!!

I got these from Hettie's Patch.
I was at the shop when the rep came with the samples of this fabric range and loved them straight away....now what to make with them.

A lovely friend gave me this as I had also been drooling over them at Hettie's Patch.
I was trying to convince myself I really didn't need them just because they looked so cute......so wasn't I lucky to be given them.
That takes all the pressure off.

with the lid off so you can drool to.

The final post out from Amitie

The water lily that is on my back yard pond.

Lily on the pond

It is going to be hot today so it's off to the shops early then cooking all day with the air conditioner on.

Oh I love those sampler boxes too...just as good as a box of chocolates and no calories! I should try dropping some not-too-subtle hints about what to get me for Christmas! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and I look forward to more of your beautiful photos and stitching in 2010.
