Post Christmas - Post!


These were some of the lovely presents I received for Christmas - lucky lucky me. The burgundy reversible grab bag (top left) was made by Katherine - out of some gorgeous Asian fabric that she got me to choose, at the Craft fair in Melbourne. The Babushka has 7 dolls and was given to me by DH. My MIL gave me 'Seams to Me' by Anna Maria Horner & my Mum bought me the Favorite Things 'Cute Skirt' pattern, the 'Vintage Home' book and 'A Family Gathering' by Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched (plus the Gutermann tin & threads). I feel very blessed to be given all this crafty goodness - Thanks everyone.

Here are the cherubs opening their new Playstation 2 (complete with SingStar - Yeah Baby!), and a photo with Grandma.
Whilst DH watches the cricket, and the kids are entertained with their Christmas presents, I have managed to get in a bit of crafting :) I have made ANOTHER 'Pleated Beauty Bag', this one is for my SIL Gillian - a belated birthday gift that I promised to make her. It is made out of 'Pop Garden' fabric by Heather Bailey.
Santa said I have to work on DH a bit more to get a new camera, I will keep you posted...
With Love
