Oh my goodness I just realised it’s been 10 days since I did a post!!!!! (Edit: Ummm .... I just realised I can't count either .... 13 days ... lol !!!)
I hope you all had a super fabulous wonderful Christmas!! Was Santa good to you ;o)?? My DH and I decided this year to buy some accessories for our motorbike to make travelling more comfortable … but we haven’t even had a chance to try them out yet cos it hasn’t stopped raining!!! I’m not complaining though, there are people dealing with floods all over the place and we’ve been very lucky so far. But oh I do wish it would stop … bring on the blue skies!!!
These are a few of the lovely gifties I received from some very dear friends
These very dear friends and I also had a really fun apron swap and the person who made my gawjus apron was Jenny!!! Waddyathink??????? Cute huh???!!!!!! The apron silly … not the old chook wearing it LOL!!! I just love it and I’ve worn it heaps of times since I got it – it’s just so pretty - thank you Jenny :o)!!! I sent the apron I made off to Dawn … but I’ll let her show you it ;o). I’ll just show you the cute little vintage button I popped on the pocket ;o).
We had another Christmas celebration yesterday (27th). Tahlia (DD1) and her partner Luke arrived from UK on Christmas night … we wondered if they’d make it here at all with all the cancelled flights leading up to the Christmas break … but they DID (phew) :o)!!!! Oh how lovely it is to have all the kids here at once :o). Here’s our table full …… that’s me sitting between Tahlia and Luke ;o). What a fun day it was … we had pork and turkey and all the trimmings - yumm, and here’s the Cassata I made for dessert … It really was delicious … but it froze so hard we had to let it stand for a little while before we could cut it LOL….. As you can see …. my poor DH is smiling through gritted teeth as he tries hard to cut the darn thing he he. it was worth the wait though … YUMMM!!!
I’ve been working on a quilt for an old school-friend of Tahlia’s who is having her first baby – although I haven’t been able to even touch it for the past few days as we’ve been so busy. I’ll give you a look next time as hopefully I’ll have a bit more done by then. These are the pretties I’ve used for it … Lovely bright and cheery Gelati type colours from “Me and My Sister” Favourites …… mmmmm, delish!!!!
I’ll be back soon …. ‘til then …….
