I did manage to do a little research on the internet this morning as I was seeking inspiration for some projects and I found a few sites of interest. Try http://pinwheelponders.blogspot.com/2009/08/fabric-ornaments.html for making Christmas ornaments. Or http://stitchtales.blogspot.com/ for Christmas ideas.
My little one has jumped onto my sofa and is sighing, a good sign that she is going to take a nap which is what I want really if I am going to fire up the Bernina and finish off some sewing. I have a new idea too and I can't wait to try it out but I do need a respite from doggie games just for a bit.

|Cushion nearing completion|
Well I do have a few readers from "across the pond" and as its a special day I found a quilt of a turkey for you. My DD in California is having a chicken she tells me, I suspect its less hassle and she is English so I don't suppose she is really bothered, but I know some of you will be having turkey so my best wishes to you all. We had a humble pie for our dinner.

|Autumn Glory kit by The Crewel Work Company|
Next bit of good news is that I asked DH if he would modify my number 9 foot for my Bernina and take out the front so I can see the needle when I am free motion sewing or quilting and he did it this morning and its great, no rough edges or anything, but then he is a master craftsman with metal. His latest project is coming on very well indeed and I love what he does its so beautiful and it works too.
And lastly, I am about to sew a thing called a 'mug rug' which is all about making a mini quilt or something like it with dimensions of 6" x 9" and then you put your mug of tea or coffee on it and there is also room for a biscuit. We are all making one for Christmas in our little Cumbria Patchworkers group and then going to exchange them. I will post a photo if it turns out ok.
