Now I just need to get one of those nice wire hanger thingys to finish it off. It is meant to be a birthday present for somebody ........... but I'm not so sure now, I quite like it for myself. I could always do another one I suppose, but it was very fiddley with all those little bits of felt to cut out - it's not actually as big as it looks, so the stripes on the cats and the tips of the tails on the kittens are very very small - still, we shall see!! The birthday in question isn't until next year actually, so I've got plenty of time to think about it.

I’m chuffed to bits as this my first swap, albeit a mini swap between me and Kathleen (Coffee Mom). The magazine contains a pattern for a really lovely Christmas wallhanging called ’12 days of Christmas’ – see picture of inside the magazine.
I saw it on Kathleen’s blog, and after discovering I was unable to get hold of it myself over ‘ere, Kathleen (or Coffee mom as she likes to be known), suggested a mini swap – just she and me!! And job done already as you see. Damn it though, now this means I am just going to have to go to my favourite fabric shop doesn’t it? Your fault Kathleen - can you see (or at least imagine) the big smile right across my face? Kathleen also sent me a card with a lovely picture of Canada in the Fall. Autumn is my most favourite time of the year because of the colours – they are stunning and I am lucky enough to live in an area where the woods and trees are plentiful and look so nice at this time of year (well, they’re starting to turn anyway). Having said that though, I do dream of one day going to see Canada in the Fall as its beauty is famous.
I was going to show you what I’ve sent to Kathleen, but I don’t think she’s received it yet, so I won’t spoil the surprise!! Hopefully it will arrive early next week.
Pop over to Kathleen’s blog and you will see her ’12 days of Christmas’ half way completed.
Thanks Coffee Mom!

The sampler I absolutely love mainly because of the gorgeous muted colours in it and ............
............ the perambulator because I used to have a bit of a passion for them. It was seeing Jo’s (Home Sweet Home) super new perambulator recently on her blog that reminded me of it.
And as for my current WIP (Cat Tails) – as you see, it is still a WIP - apologies for slightly blurred image!

When, though, is somebody going to invent the 36-hour day? This would give me an extra 12 hours a day just for my sewing, so I expect something else will have to give in order for me to do justice to these adorable kittens. I don't even get to keep it either as it was bought to give as a gift to someone else. Still, I'm sure it will be appreciated!
