The first Santa of the Season ..

The kids had their annual junior school fundraiser today, all encouraged to hold a stall to earn money to sponsor 2 overseas children.

Santa arrived in the Australian traditional fire truck and tossed lollies to the kids. The first Santa event of the season - 2 more before lunch tomorrow.

Kane bought himself a succulent plant for $1 to add to the kids collection. Pretty pleased with himself. There was the jumping castle, sausage sizzle and stalls everywhere! Perfect day for it today.

And I have finished the first block in redwork from the Red Delicious block of the month. Something a bit different for me. Esther has shown the block in applique but it is suitable for redwork too.

I love it in the redwork! I considered doing mine as redwork but decided on the applique as I've not done much of that lately - you can see it on my blog. Can't wait to see yours when it's finished! :-)

I was planning to do the Red deliscious in redwork too! I don't really like to applique. It makes me nervous.

It's funny how all those Santas start popping up this time of year...vbg. The kids look like they are having a ball and Kane looks so pleased with his succulent. Love the redwork - so very pretty

I was going to say the same sort of thing as Periwinkle - Christmas in the summer is just such a hard concept to get my mind round! I love that Santa came in a fire engine!

Never mind what Locket said - I could quite happily get used to the idea of Santa in summer right now - brrrrr!

I love your redwork - your stitching is exquisite :-)
