this and that Thursday

Looking for the Sew Mama Sew giveaway post? Here it is!

It's been a busy week here! I am getting the house ready for some Christmas entertaining this weekend. Still need to get to the grocery store.... yikes! I'm running out of week! Meanwhile I had some things to share. This package arrived this week all the way from Australia...
 Maria is so on the ball! Her Christmas gift is still sitting here in my sewing studio. It's time to get my act together and get to the post office! Hope it's not too late to get it to her by Christmas! This gift is tucked under the tree for happy opening on Christmas day.

A couple of weeks ago I won a gift card to The Rusted Chain on Facebook! They have so many wonderful choices on their website and many of them were on my Christmas list. It was hard to choose! I finally settled on this beauty which says "dream God sized dreams". A wonderful reminder! I love it.
 And yes, I have been crafting. I had a candy pack of Marmalade that I won at Bring n Brag and I made it into a little stitched wall hanging. It's for my guild secret pal.... she'll receive it at our holiday brunch on Saturday.
What have you been working on?

Great choice for you from the "Rusted Chain"

Lovely mini for your Guild partner. I am sure she will love it.

Beautiful necklace. I have just finished a wall hanging of an embroidered butterfly for a friend, now I get to sew some christmas decorations at last.
