Peeking too soon............

I know some of you have been over to Ravelry to see what I've been knitting for presents, but I hadn't put them on there yet. Slow down.... They're on there now. Just go here and you can have a sneaky peek!!!!

I went to Maggies sale at the weekend and as you can imagine, did not leave empty handed. Here's some of the goodies I got
Some lovely yarn..


Some beautiful fabric....


And some great books....


And Maggie was selling off some of her own made quilts. These are all one offs, which she is selling to downsize into her new life and premises, and I feel lucky to own one.




I hope your Christmas preparations are going well. I am doing well so far, determined this year to be organised and not running around like a headless chicken. Yesterday Rob and I went Christmas shopping and 2 miraculous things happened.
1. We got most of what we went for.
2. We are still speaking.

That'll do me!!!

Happy shopping!!!!

lovely haul! The large floral is from the Evelyn collection by Anna Griffin isn't it? I love that fabric and have been drooling over it on-line. Is Maggie anything to do with Sunflower Fabrics? As the fabric bundles look like theirs (or was it just soemoen having a de-stash?)
I'm sewing most of my present this year as just don't have the time to knit them. I have 2 of the 3 make-up bags done, and have cut out the fabric for my mums bag. The only one I 'm worried about not getting done in time is my best mates bag (Get knitted don't have all the fabric in stock so i won't get it until just before christmas).

I went to peek at your projects on Rav, and I spotted the Phildar Swing jacket. I saw and admired this ages ago linked to from a forum and had no idea it was yours, it's utterly gorgeous!

Love the sale bargains you snagged this week too!
