the end of 2015

4 blog posts in one day. And only 37  for the year - note to self - must do better. Researching all the family stuff makes me realise how valuable anecdotes are. I am loving collecting the info but if only I could get a bit more of the chat stuff.

Big news of course - Grant and Hannah got engaged - well a wee while back but they had their engagement party at Mounts Bar Sailing Club - lovely evening and so good to catch up with lots of kids we hadn't seen for years. - having spent many weekends at this club many years ago - it's a great spot too.

 I started these in NZ and had this crazy idea that I would make 10 of these little fun things of no consequence in Dec - I have managed 6 which is not too bad for me I guess. 4 for January

 A bit of fun - all about A6 size and woven backgrounds

 Woven sari ribbon - wool felt - hand dyed linen -

 running stitch with Eleganza Perle 8 to give some uniformity

all influenced by something

little motifs to feature

Made the pavlovas and liqueur ice cream once again for Christmas - well two of each actually.

We have been very busy indeed and of course the e-mag is not ready for Dec - Ian is beavering away with a new suggestion from Jacinta - let's see how it goes - but fear not - it will appear soon - I have one article to finish and actually waiting on someone else's- that means I may not be last.

Roll on 2016 tomorrow and may all our dreams come true

Congratulations to Grant and Hannah and a very happy new year to you and Ian.

Love your stitchy bits, makes me quite envious, but I just need to be thankful for all the things I can still do. Cheers
