Friday Night with Friends

I'm starting to feel quite a bit better so I had a very happy Friday Night sewing with my bloggy friends. This night was organised by lovely Cheryll at Gone Stitchin'.  She is such a star and organises so many fabulous things for us all.  Thank you so much, Cheryll.
Can't show what I am making as it is another Secret Squirrel project but it was wonderful to be sewing again.

All my stitching time is now taken up with sewing Christmas gifts and soon I'll have to think of wrapping them all.  Here are some great ideas to help with this fun task.
If I'm looking for gorgeousness my mind always turns to fabulous Lisa and Sarah at A Spoonful of Sugar.  They are wrapping with red twine and dolies, gingham and buttons.

Magic Moonlight Free Images is another amazing place to visit.  There are lots of delightful Christmas images to make into cards and tags.
More contemporary Christmas delights are kindly shared at charming Urban Daisies.

This one stole my heart.  The whole post at Odessa May Society is inspiring.
And finally there's a great tutorial on Chatelaine which teaches you how to tie the perfect bow.

Enormous thanks to everyone for so generously sharing.
