I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

It's a very revealing Secret Squirrel time

Ssh... it's Secret Squirrel time!
While I can't reveal what I have done for my Margaret Sherry Lovers Blog Christmas Card Exchange I can tell you that it is finished and I have now sent it on it's way to Portgual.  All will be revealed around Christmas Eve/Day.  So stay tuned!

But don't panic Mr Mannering... I can reveal something to you!

Today is the reveal day for the Craftbubble "Crazy for Kitties" Christmas Card Exchange.  I have previously shown you what I sent to Sue in the UK, but I haven't shown you what I received until now.

"Crazy for Kitties" Christmas Card exchange from Sue
After unwrapping the packages from Sue (with a little bit of help from the boys) I had to read the book straight away.  It was a lovely book... all about a sweet little kitten who helped an NZ family through a very touch time.  If you get the chance to read this book make sure you have a box of tissues with you!  I checked out Helen's website and it appears that there may very well be a movie coming out sometime next year.

Now while I can't show you my Margaret Sherry Christmas card I can show what else I have been working on over the last couple of weeks.  The CB "Crazy for Kitties" group also did a Christmas Ornament exchange and I stitched a kitty ornament for Maribeth in the USA.  That was mailed today.  Two finishes in one weekend... must be a record!!

My Christmas Tree
We haven't decorated the bottom in an attempt
 to keep the boys away from the ornaments!

Daisy dog all dressed up for Christmas!
(Woof- get these things off me Mum - woof)
Well lovely bloggers I must finish this post in a bit of a hurry as we have a raging thunderstorm outside tonight.  It has been around since about 4.30pm this afternoon and while it was eased off for about 10 mins or so, it is now back with a vengence and with each thunderclap and lightning strike the power is now flickering.... so I think it's time to say goodnight!  Plus the battery is about to run out on the laptop as is my battery - it is way past my bedtime!!

So before I turn into a pumpkin.. night night, see you all again real soon
