This is the lovely quilt I received from Pam in this year's ALQS.  All the stitching notions are embroidered and embellished with beads. The scissors keep hangs by blue cotton and there are lots of buttons.  I was sooo pleased to get it.  Sorry Pam that it has taken me this long to show and tell.  Thank you for a lovely addition to my growing collection of Little Quilts.  ( Did you notice, Kate, I said 'This Year's ALQS. Do you see how I am hoping for another next year......roll on No. 7 )

I did it.

I have been learning how to put a link into my blog.  I think I've cracked it. My link to Oops-lah works........yippee.  You're never too old to learn something new.

School supplies.cats and dogs, Christmas pouches

Once again girls, I am surprised at how quickly the time has flown.  I last blogged at the beginning of October and now it's almost December.  However, in my defence, I was offline for at least 3 weeks of that as we changed server.  It was good to get back to my laptop, as reading email and blogging by phone is not as good.  Maybe I need a posh phone.  I will have to talk myself into that.  I havent taken pics of everything I have been up to, but here are a few.
My grandaughter wanted a special pencil case for school. She decided on the fabrics and the design.  There are two compartments fastened together with poppers. Each has a little pocket on the outside embellished with a few buttons.  This pencil case has been on the go for two months and is surviving school very well.
I made my little fluffy dog a small quilt.  Why, because her friend Amber insists on taking over the dog bed, and she is too kind to argue.  She does love it tho, even if she looks anxious.  I think she hates the camera.
little Christmas pouches
I saw these on Oops-lah's blog and they were just what I was looking for.  I needed some treat bags for the table when I go our with some friends later this week.  Thank you Vreni. Your pink and white pouches were lovely.  I decided to go for Christmas theme, as this is our Christmas 'night out' together.  I added little jingle bells on the ribbon.  Photos not the best, think I need a posh camera too.  Santa, can you hear me?   I only have two finished. Need some more ribbon.  Shopping tomorrow :-)
