Its that time of year again....

Yes....It's

Chookyblue's Secret Santa Christmas Swap ...

I have been in this swap twice & always had fun

I missed it last year as I was busy overseas but this year I'm excited to be back in

I have been having a good look at my swappies blog going to be very interesting picking things for her...






This is a quilt made by one of my quilting group,Lorraine, (no blog) the pattern is Floribunda by Erin Russek of One Piece at a Time blog and was a free BOM she had last year .There is another free BOM this year a very generous blogger.







Some not very exciting HsT they are going to be turned into hourglass blocks for a Gail Pan pattern






A non-quilty pic ...we had a big family BBq recently & it was my job to take a Pav, this is a 12 egg white base with a Lemon Curd filling (home made)& cream decoration, it all disappeared in record time.






And now some progress on my Gail Pan Berries & Bluebirds.
All the blocks are preped & waiting for their applique.






News on the family front I am going to be a Nanna in April,Whitney & Nathan are expecting their first baby & everyone is very happy for them .



Well I am off to watch the Rugby then the Football & do some stitching.



Hope everyone has a great weekend xxx

That pav looks scrumptious, love you Gail Pan blocks. Is it a bom or a single pattern, and congrats on the baby news, there's nothing like being a Nana.
