A beautiful Day

We were lucky with gorgeous weather on Christmas Day. We had brunch on the beach with friends as the rest of our family are on the other side of Australia.

B got a camera so all photos were taken by her. We all had a great day relaxing and playing with our new toys. I got an Ipad which is great and perfect for reading blogs and emails. We decided on Pavlova for dessert.

And Rhani had a great day with lots of presents in her new stocking.

A Stocking For Rhani

The new addition to the family needed her own Christmas Stocking. Too Cute. The pattern is the Christmas Stocking Tutorial from FabricWorm. It is very easy.
I have been telling everyone for months that I want an iPad for Christmas so Debbie made me a cover in anticipation of me getting my wish. Now Dave has to deliver.

I made Gran and Grumpy mug rugs to match their quilts although Grumpy's is a little large-he can have large snacks.

I finished my Christmas Star. It is going to be a wall hanging but it doesn't have a sleeve so it will have to be a table runner for now.I quickly quilted around the borders to make this a couple of years ago. Yes, a dog Christmas wall hanging.

My First Mug Rug

First an update of Rhani. Isn't she gorgeous!I made a mini Christmas tree skirt for B. She loves dogs and has a mini Christmas tree with dog ornaments that this will be perfect for. It was a great and easy tutorial on a blog I follow but I cant remember whose.
I also made my first mug rug with left over blocks from a table runner I am making, using left over charm squares from the Charming Stars Quilt I am making. I haven't finished either of these but I have finished the mug rug and found a mug to go with it.
