 You're never too far away because
I know we're close in hearts
πŸ’šπŸ’“πŸ’šπŸ’“
A lovely Sunday morning to you all! We are having a nice drop of rain in my part of the world right now and you pretty much would know that Aussies love seeing the rain because we don't see it very often.

Well I survived going back to work after our long summer break and once I get there I'm so happy to be back. We welcomed a new Principal, caught up on the holiday news and then got back into our respective work areas. 

Today I have some bright flowers to show you. I made a bunch of these recently, put them on the net and they all sold. I can see why too, they are very cute.

  Fun little hair ties for the little ladies.
 Now I have to do a little bragging. My clever husband made this white stand for me after I made a comment about seeing one on another blog. Thanks heaps Pixie, you did such a fantastic job on this.

 Dear God.....thank you for the rain, 
but please don't send us lightning. Thank you πŸ™πŸ™
 A darling friend of mine has given me a bag (the size of Uluru) lol....full of beautiful fabrics. Thank you so much Jane, I can't believe all the lovely textured fabrics that I pulled out of this giant sized treasure trove.

 I went on a little spending spree too and found some magnificent fabrics and embellishments.So now with all this new stash, I will be whipping that poor old sewing machine of mine. I believe most of these materials will be turning into lovely bags. I can't wait to get cracking.

 I love seeing my sons happy and when their friends come over, I get such a warm feeling. These three guys have grown up together and remain friends today. I even consider them my family.
Corey, Jesse and Brandon

I'm happy to say that the rain has started up again and I really have to go outside and enjoy it. Our forecast is for rain all day and night. May you have a beautiful Sunday and a lovely week.
Ciao, Anita.

I TOTALLY LOVE your opening comment about being close in heart - that is so very sweet-like you , my dear.

The flowers are precious - they are so cheerful!

Love the picture of your sons- isn't it amazing how fast they have grown from tots into this???? Time really does fly by much too fast.

That rain picture is Stunning! You are getting rain and we had snowflurries the size of small balls today as my daughter and I finally got in the back to cut some firewood.

OOO, love the new fabrics! I would love the doggie fabric and my granddaughter the skulls. LOL I am making winter hats for Christmas 2017. ~smile~

Good luck with your new school year!

So pleased the work year has started well for you. Hope it continues that way.
The crocheted flowers do look lovely. No wonder they were popular.
Have fun with your bag of goodies and your new purchases.
Make the most of that lovely rain. It does make a wonderful difference!

Lovely flowers. I too love rain but it's not a novelty up here. Today we had a bit of snow. My children too have a few friends that they have grown up with. Lucky you to have a hubby who can make what you want.
