I hope you all out there have had a wonderful Christmas and that Santa was nice to you all, I know he was to me. I got this lovely Journal from my SSCS Tami , Thank you and I love it heaps. I am waiting for a quite moment to sit and read the travel magazines about where she live in Maine, so hopefully in the new year ( That sounds terrible but it is in two days lol).

I also got this lovely apron ( love aprons saved a lot of my clothes from my cooking) from Anita
In Holland she was my bag partner from earlier this year and we have been in touch ever since ( I do enjoy this blogging ). Thank you so much I have been spoilt this year.
I hope you all have a safe New Year and look forward to visiting you all in blogland in the coming year, Take care

Well the Holidays have come and I am now the Taxi service to two socially active boys , not that bad as they have also been taken to see the Christmas lights by my lovely Mum and the beach as well . So I'm sorry that I have been away for awhile, but I have been busy spending some much need time with the boys . I have also designed two quilts and have started the first one as well as some quilting on my sampler quilt, I will show you it as soon as I have finished it.
We have also had a special little visitor come to stay with use and it was a joy to have the laughter of a little one in the house again, they have the most heart felt laugh and although his family is going through a very ruff patch I am pleased he will be their to put a smile on their face when times are at the hardest.
I have once again been saved by my lovely resourceful DH as the fridge broke down (my fault)and after a hard day at work spent the next 2 hours with his head in the freezer repairing it. He is defiantly a keeper and worth his weight in Gold.
I Hope all are well and that your letter's to Santa have arrived happy sewing
Big Hugs and Cheers to all

Ever since John was two years old we have decorated ginger bread men at Christmas. This year we had some friends over for the afternoon and what fun they all had . Although I am afraid to say that the icing didn't even get to set before they disappeared .

Hope you are all having a great week.

While I was in Melbourne Lillian, my mum , auntie and I went to a shop full of OLD things I know they are called antique shop. Now don't get me wrong they are great places if you want to see some history and I know alot of you out their love them but I just can't get the hang off this collecting of old things (sorry). I love the way some people can mix new and old together but I just don't have the knack .I have some things that have been handed down to me and I do treasure them and will look after them to hand on to my boys and maybe with time I will get the knack off it . I even have the most ugliest glass fish you have ever seen but that's for another day I think , I don't want to ruin your day with its ugliness's.

Any way while their Lillian discovered the old dollies and found two butterfly ones, now these where cute and on buying them she cut them in two gave me one and said I was to make something using it.

So I did the other night and here it is I have turned it into a pillow so something old is now new again. I even got the hang off putting in a zipper well almost .
I have had fun with this and who knows next time I pass one of these OLD shops I might just have a look at the dollies I guess this might be the start of it .
Happy sewing

I came home from Gym (torture chambers) today to a parcel on the step all the way from the USA. It was my SSCS partner with this lovely little mitten filled with fabric and cotton. But the hard part is not to open the other one, I have a few that I can't open so I have put them in the cupboard so I am not tempted. I have also finished my sampler quilt( bigger than I thought) I am hoping to get it on the machine soon to finish it, will show you when done. Happy sewing
