Quilt in the mail & some secret XMAS stitching

I was baby sitting my grandsons and took them XMAS shopping and then had sushi for tea. I let them play outside at the shopping centre before we came home. It was a warm night and they had fun
We got back home, got the boys bathed and a dvd was put on for them to watch.
Of course I sewed.

I have started on some secret stitching. A XMAS gift or 2.
Here are the designs finished but what will they be sewn into????

I have cut out and drawn a few more things out ready to work on for slow stitching Sunday.

I have made the laundry bag to go with the Dragonfly quilt and I have sent it to our AUSSIE Hero
To find out more read HERE
The laundry bag is made out of the left over backing

I am linking up with FNWF over at

Go and have a look at what others are doing.
