Merry Christmas
and
Thank you

A big hello to you all and hope you are now prepared for the special day that is almost upon us. I am now just waiting to enjoy Christmas day with my family. Our traditional day is.....a cup of tea, opening our presents, eating our yummy Christmas lunch, swimming and then clagging it in the afternoon!!! A special treat to add to our Christmas day this year is Heather will be joining me for a sewing afternoon too!!! I imagine it will get/keep us into...or out of trouble??? Lol

I had a surprise parcel turn up in the mail during the week from Karen. I just love the gorgeous purse Karen had sent me, I love it! A big thank you Karen, I really appreciate your kindness.

 
Too pretty
I want to share my latest project with you even though it is far from finished. Some of my blogger friends want to have a sneak peak. I am making a banner for the library as a symbol of thanks to all the kids that come to visit me and make my day so special.
 


Thank you kids!!

I have crocheted up squares of mostly 8 ply yarn, stitched them together and added felt lettering with the words ‘Welcome to our awesome library’ on it.  Each of the letters are being stitched down and some buttons will be added for fun.


Some of my favourite things......


I found a wonderful book from the local library and there are some pretty fantastic projects in there.



 
I would love to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Many thanks for sharing my year with me and it's been fun blogging with you all. Stay safe and well.

Cheers, Anita.

Merry Christmas to you too Anita ... hope you have a lovely (& creative) festive season. I just love all the projects you make - the kids will just adore that library banner. My friend has that Sew Pretty Homestyle book & I borrow it now & again - it is very inspiring. Enjoy it x0x

Back from our break and catching up. I do hope your Christmas day went as well if not better than planned. I bet the pool had a lot of use.
Your library banner is looking wonderful.
Love those Tilda books. Have fun!
