Final post for 2010

Firstly a couple of last minute OPAMs, they have been put together for a while now just waiting for quilting and binding.  This one is just a small tablerunner I needed  for our table between our lounge chairs, love this fabric.

I made these 2 at the Evans Head retreat in November and also only needed finishing off.

I've had a lot of fun this year in joining the OPAM and also the Stitch-a-long, meeting new friends with common interests, it all helps with motivation to get projects done.
Its also been a sad year for me with my Mum passing away and I missed her this christmas but its very good to remember the good times.
We enjoyed christmas with all the family together and of course ate too much so it will be back on the treadmill for me next year.

I hope you all had a very happy christmas with family and friends.

I would like to wish you all a   HAPPY NEW YEAR  and may it bring you health and happiness.

See you in 2011.

Naughty naughty girl ......

Our little "Pippa" was a lucky girl this christmas when our g/daughter Corinne bought her a cute pressie.... a tiger.... well look what she did with it on christmas day would you believe..... looks innocent doesn't she ?

Looks like it is snowing at our house thanks to Pippa.

I'm sure Corinne will get a giggle out of these photos, theres not much left of the tiger now.
