Not long to go

Where has the time gone?  I can not believe that it is only two days till Christmas. With everything that has gone on throughout this year it has really made me sit back and reflect.

I see just how lucky Hannah & I are. We have a family who love & support us unconditionally. I have faith that 2011 will be better. And we have friends who love,support,& spoil us rotten. So many people are in far worse conditions & circumstances. I remind myself of this on a daily basis.

I have been happily sewing and crochetting like a mad woman. Atleast 75% of presents this year being given by Hannah & I are handmade. I tried to do them all, but just couldn't get my head around it. Heres hoping for next year.

I have also been patiently stalking the post lady waiting for my craft swap to arrive. Fingers crossed for tomorrow. I will also hunt through the packing boxes and find the cord to connect my camera so I can upload pictures of christmas crafts & my craft swap.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Christmas that is filled with love,happiness,lots of handmade treasures, & seeing the joys on families faces.

New start!

Well things have been exceptionally busy here. Hannah & I have recently moved back to NSW from almost 6 years in Far Nth QLD. So the past 6 weeks have been a whirlwind.

With things starting to settle I starting to get my sewing mojo back, and back into things creative. My poor sewing machine didn't know what was going on being out of use for almost 8 weeks!!!

I am also taking part in the 'Xmas Washer Swap' over at Jellywares. Jodie has a stunning blog. Go have a look.   My Daughter & I always looks at Jodie's site together. Hannah loves the pics of the lambs and pic's of their farm.
