On the second day of Christmas

Cheryl (my cousin) from Dunedin gave to me . . .

a fabulous patchwork bag, made from 'scraps'!!!


Loving it, my colours, already using it!

If you are not ready for Xmas here is a photo to make you feel better . . .

its a box, a box of Xmas decorations, tonight I have frantically tried to finish the Xmas decorating so I can join Heather Pretty Petals party, I still have one tree to put up and lots of titivating and final touches to do.


The reason for being behind is because The Princess and I did this over the weekend . . .



it became an obsession !!!

Don't even ask how my Xmas present crafting is coming along . . .

I think you made a wise choice…

It is a lovely picture puzzle and a wonderful
Christmas time memory has been made.

What a fun puzzle and I love the expression on the Princess's face!

Rachael...could you email me? My niece is living near Christchurch..New Plymouth. I was wondering how far that is from you. I want to do something for her for Christmas but I think I probably waited too long to send something.
