Christmas has come early at my house!!!

How exciting!!  Santa has visited a little earlier than planned - and I couldn't wait to get it out of the box!!   My Christmas present is a beautiful new Bernina Sewing Machine - I've nicknamed her "Bliss" !!!   Now I can say farewell to the freight train that I have been using ..... this one just hums along so quietly!!!   Thankyou Santa (aka David xxx) and welcome to my sewing room Bliss!!   And by the way, I picked her up from Steph's in Moruya!   I can thoroughly recommend a visit to her beautiful shop! 

I am off to the Solomon Islands for a week of meetings and trying to get the final approval through for the pre school we are trying to build!    Wish us luck and fingers crossed and lots of prayers as we try to work our way through the red tape and get used to working on "island time"!!    I have some stitching with me, but not sure very much will get done!!      I'll leave you though with a couple of photos of the beautiful quilt which is now on my bed!!

How lucky am I to have this beautiful quilt on my bed?  Thanks so much for all the beautiful stitching to my Needlework ladies!   I love it!!
