About Me- Bird on the Border

My Photo
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.

The Day "AFTER" Christmas

Thank you to all my blog friends who sent Christmas messages and to those I sent wishes to twice, sorry, not meaning to harass but I didn't really know who I returned mails to and who I didn't. So no need to reply if you were one of those lovely people. 

My day started with a lovely American style breakfast as my SIL in American, maple syrup pancakes and bacon...mmm.  then present time, I was so spoilt.

My SSCS present was one of the first to be opened....Thanks so much Isabel.


I hope you all had a nice day.  I was a bit worried about Denice (my SSCS friend) today as I was watching the news I heard that her area  was out of power in the cold conditions. Hope all is Ok with you Denice.

We have had a lovely Christmas with my BIL and his family. Plenty of yummy food, cool weather and time with family.

Thank you to Isabelle, my SS  for her beautiful gift. I really loved it. Finally time to open.



Opening my SSCS


A beautiful stitchery organiser / holder, 2 cup cake place mats and a beautiful piece of fabric to make something for Evelyn.
I really love the fabric used for the pocket. Lovely sayings on it.




                                                     My lovely parcel . I love the way the stitchery organiser folds up to become nice and compact...great for travelling. 



Fabric for Evelyn. Notice the little sparkles. So cute!







I think I will share a cup of tea with Isabel 
I think my SIL and niece know my favourite colour is orange. they really spoilt me.


One advantage of spending xmas with my BIL is there are plenty of mangoes, his son in law grows them. mmmm...


Breakfast , lunch and dinner.



I think Evelyn just loves her Daddy ...a kiss for Christmas..Thanks Emma for the photo .

Hi, Jenny,
We have cold and snow and ice but we were lucky and didn't lose our power. VERY lucky considering how many thousands around us did. I am very surprised we made the news in Australia!! I'm glad to see you had a lovely Christmas and chuckled to see you in sleeveless and sandals...we are bundled to our ears!
