Bits & Pieces

I managed to get another little felt gnome finished for the month.

Which bought my finishes for the month of December to 9.

My GD Elissa made a lovely ginger bread house for Xmas day and boy didnt the littlest grandies get stuck into this,lol,i think Liss did a great job of making this.

I also had fun making up my 2 girls hamper's for xmas,i love the wooden boxs i got from Kmart for $10 each.

I got excited we have some pears on our tree,hope these ones ripen,we have trouble with the birds eating the fruit on our trees,we have tried many ways of keeping them off but they are very clever and always find a way to get to them,lol.

Hope your Sunday is awesome.
Cheers Shez xx

  10. It's amazing what you have created over the year of 2017...

  11. In looking over your blog posts this past year, I see you've made lots of really cute things, and better yet, you reached your goals! ---"Love"

  12. A very productive month when you factor in the amount of work in the stitchery. Good luck with your fruit. We always had the same problems with birds and of course late frosts. It was a bonus when we ever got to enjoy some.

  13. Can't keep a good woman down....even with broken bones! Love those decs. Fab gingerbread house by your GD. I do hope the birdies leave you some of my favourite. Anyway they come...fresh, baked love them!

  14. Happy New Year Shez! Your gingerbread house made me laugh. Oh, not at YOUR house, but the memory of Alyssa, Corey and Nic sitting at the dining room table trying to put a house together but the walls and roof kept caving in. Finally it just sat in a heap in the middle of the table and everyone just broke off a piece when they wanted a treat.

    Best wishes for a great 2018.
    xx, Carol
