Over the weekend I spent some time stitching..... Getting my OPAM for October finished. This project is a partially printed project designed by Bonnie Sullivan. It uses some wool applique, embroidery and a printed picture design. I love them. I Love the colours and the quirky design. As much as I try to go for an Aussie for Christmas I still tend to love the traditional northern hemisphere style of decoration. In early November last year I was in Michigan and it snowed and there were lots of Christmas decorations in shops and around and that will probably as close as I will ever get to a white Christmas. Well I can dream. Hello to Denice my Michigan friend.

Spent some time with my brother during the holidays. They dug up fresh sand to make a sandpit, a bit of paddling on the dam, some fishing and a sausage sizzle on an open fire to end the day. What else could kids want. The only technology was my camera.
If the tractor, the forklift, or the gator has a steering wheel or a horn it's very cool for this little boy.
Night time possum hunt is always good. Don't worry the gator never went anywhere . NO keys the kids just loved playing on it and pretending.
Feels like a little while since I've blogged ,sorry, but life just gets in the way sometimes.
I promised dear Peg I would catch up on my OPAM I missed August so now I am caught up if that is allowed? Now life should be back to normal and I should be on time for October.
I made these trays for the ladies I work with at school for Xmas ! Hopefully they don't read my blog. I used the Brother scan and cut. I have had it for ages but wasn't confident with it. After a few demonstrations at the Sydney Quilt and Craft fair I got inspired. The trays are quite big and hopefully will be useful not just for the Christmas season but all year around.
