It's just a few days until Christmas....

I feel as though I had a little bit of early Christmas cheer last week when I went to my letter box and found the next edition of Australian Patchwork & Quilting magazine waiting for me.

 I flipped through the glossy pages and there on page 58 is an article about my Happy As A Clam quilt!!  Just in case you're wondering, Yes, I did jump up and down with excitement and dance around singing "WooHoo!!". I'm so pleased this quilt is having it's moment in the spotlight.

Happy as A Clam hangs in my hallway and as I pass it there's a little girl with a big sunshiny smile that catches my eye and I can't help but smile in return.

A wonderful reminder that this is the season for sharing smiles.

So with a happy smile I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, a super Solstice and lots of joyful times over the festive season.
