Santa in his sleigh block
This is the final stitchery block of four of the Christmas table runner. The next step will be to piece the fabrics for the centre of the runner, then add the stitcheries to each end. I’ll add this to my List of Six projects when I write a new list.
But never fear, I still have several hand stitching projects to work on. Including this Christmas stitchery which I had tucked away and forgotten about. I’m going to do a little hand quilting on this, then make it up as a Christmas cushion for the caravan. I’m not too sure who the designer is, perhaps someone will know?

Today is Mother’s Day here in New Zealand. Our Sunday morning started with our usual Sunday morning treat, of bacon and eggs breakfast, Robin’s specialty. I like tomatoes with mine, and Robin gets two eggs. Can you see the selvedge placemat under my plate?

Then I opened my Mother's Day gift from daughter Nicky. Wonder what it is? Oh look, chocolate! Lindt chocolate with fruit centres, doesn’t it look yummy. Guess I’ll be sharing these with you know who. Hopefully I’ll hear from son Michael? He doesn’t “do” Mothers Day but a phone call would be nice.

And Gemma wants to say hello to all the Mothers out there. As she is getting older (she is all of one year old now) she is starting to do things differently. Such as lying in the front of her play tunnel, to watch the world go by. Not so long ago, the tunnel was just the thing to run through very fast, in one end and out the other at high speed, jumping out at us as we walked into the kitchen. She doesn’t have her “crazy times” so much these days. Gemma is very loving and likes to keep close to us.
Happy Mother’s Day from Gemma
