I am so blessed to be a wife,mum and a grandma. Our wonderful son and his lovely wife have
just had a daughter. My little family complete. My husband and I both work full time.
We enjoy travelling, going in our caravan, dining out and spending time with friends and
visiting our children whenever we can.
Oh shouldn't forget "Tess" the spoilt black kelpie.
I love anything country and Shabby Chic and I love patchwork and stitching and getting together with like minded ladies who love to do the same. Just wish I had time to do more.
I love catching up with friends over a cup of coffee , and the smell of biscuits cooking in the oven on a rainy day.
I enjoy keeping in touch with the many friends I have met through blogging and sharing our sewing and our lives on our blogs. I love going off on stitching retreats and quilting weekends with my quilting buddy and friends. And of course I love the birds in my garden. I also write the blog for our local quilt group Macintyre Quilters which you find on the side bar.
So exciting....My secret santa parcel arrived from the SSCS swap. The lovely Nancy from Pennsylvania USA has made me the most gorgeous Christmas Star. Thank you Nancy it is simply beautiful. Cant wait to open my present on Christmas day.
I just love the colouring and stitching. Sorry it is sideways but I posted on my phone.
I have been having a bit of a clean up during decorating and some things just need to be moved out....or do they... This lovely wooden box was in my kitchen with a cherry photo on the front. Always held plastic bags... but that's what drawers are for... Now its in my sewing room. Big enough to hold cutters and scissors etc ... I have had this little sewing machine trinket for ages and I think it just suites the part.... Now finish cleaning up the sewing room and get into some sewing...
After reading Kate's blog where she took us for a tour of her lovely home. I thought , what a nice idea . So I will give you a tour of mine. Bernie usually changes the blocks around to spell all sorts of crazy things that seems to have become a tradition in our house.
No it's not Christmas .. just left overs from the the 'tree decorating party".. have one every year so much better than doing it on your own when you are "empty nesters "..
Go from the kitchen to the dining room..new candle lights... a lovely gift from one of my friends ( and one of the tree decorators.)
Go the other way and the family room has a little more Christmas...kids corner.
From the dining room. Makes me feel like I am having a white Christmas when I look here.
Looking to the lounge room
A little touch of Denmark because it holds a special place in my heart.
And that is it... Hope you enjoyed visiting me this Christmas.
