The rumours of my death have been greatly exaggerated!!!

A friend and follower of my blog emailed to say it is always a worry when a regular blogger goes quiet!

So here I am!

As I said a few posts ago I am working full time at the moment, and while I get used to the lack of ‘free time’ I have been bit quiet on the blogging front.  Fortunately I still have plenty to say!

Our very beautiful grand-daughter, Brooklynn will be two weeks old tomorrow and in celebration I have some photographs for show and tell!

Now for those of you who are here for my craft updates.

Card classes have produced a few finishes I can share.

P1030285 P1030286 A clever Christmas Card Idea and a party novelty made using a cheapie puzzle.

P1030297 Another Christmas card and treat/gift bag idea

P1030296 A birthday card to add to my stock.

Yesterday I went to the Craft & Quilt Show at the Brisbane Convention Centre. Gail and I met Sharon for a day of browsing, gathering inspiration, materials and patterns.  Chatting and generally having a wonderful day together.  We each found some items we just had to have.

I bought myself a rotary cutting board, so I could give Gail hers back!!! Several patterns, two of baby persuasion, several for bags, and couple for Christmas ornaments.  Two books, some fat quarters, but no partridge in a pear tree thankfully!

All three of us went home very tired but happy with out bootie.

Tomorrow Greg is having a operation on his back, as a Landscape Gardener he has reached the end of his warranty period and needs a 500,000K service. It is day surgery, keyhole procedure. Please keep him in your thoughts for a quick recovery….our relationship depends on it!!! ha ha ha

Thanks for visiting,

Good to read your blog again....glad your still alive and just busy!! Brooklyn is gorgeous! Thoughts to Greg today, but especially to you, I hope he will be OK, knowing that men feel pain much more than us and that i am sure his operation will be the most painful procedure that anyone has ever experienced! ha ha, Cathyxx
