A Quick Catch Up and Finish It Up Friday

Like everyone, I've been a bit busy and absent from my blog. This weekend is a chance to catch up before launching into another week of choas. I will be brief and tell the story with pictures.

I caught up with the Cassilis Quilters a little while ago.

Lovely gifts were exchanged.

I made some little travel jewellery cases for my friends. Here they are zipped up...

...and open. 

They have a little pockets for necklaces etc. on one side and a place for earrings on the other.

So, I can finally update my OPAM tally for November on my side bar. (Yes, yes, I know we are half way though December). The pattern is called 'Finder Keepers' by Keiko Clark of K Cotton Studio. It appeared in a copy of Quilts and More Winter 2012.

 I'm also linking up to Amanda Jean for Finish It Up Friday with this long overdue post.

Finally a sneak peak at what I hope have to finish ready to take to the post office by Monday...

...just keep working to deadlines at the moment. It's a Christmas gift of course.

Longer deadline for this project...

...have until midnight on Christmas Eve for this  ;)

Love making gifts for little nieces and nephews!

Have a lovely weekend.
