Flat out like a lizard drinking!!

Yes, it's been a busy week (my hubby thought you Aussie readers would appreciate my post title!), hence no blogging for me and not too much sewing either.

I did get a little stitching done ...
I nearly finished the fifth stitchery for the Christmas banner but I ran out of thread so I'm off to the quilt shop tomorrow.
My Tilda sew along task this week was to finish the doll's face and start cutting out her clothes so she now has a face and her clothes have been started.  I thought I'd wait until she was dressed before posting another photo of her.
The third stitching I have been working on is for the Great Global Christmas Swap, I have a little sneak peek for you ...

... a cute little Christmas bird.  I LOVE this pattern so I hope my swap partner will too.
On a different note, our favourite muffin recipe at the moment is Raspberry and Chocolate Muffins ...
I had fun trying to get a nice photo, isn't the Camellia beautiful?  If you want the recipe click on the new recipe tab at the top.
Well, I hope to spend tonight having a catch up on some of your lovely blogs.
Happy stitching, Wendy
