A New Year

A Happy New Year to Everyone.

I have been absent from blogging for so long now, with my limited knowledge of computers I think I may need a refresher course.
I have been somewhat busy as we all were through the Christmas period but did get a bit of stitching done here and there. I've decided to do the 365 days journal this year and have found this to be a great way to remember the year of 2012 and to have a quilt at the end.
As I said a bit of stitching. A cushion made for my eldest daughter made from 2 tea towels.

The left over linen was used to make my very first Tilda doll for little Zoe. These 2 things were supposed to be for Christmas but did not quite get finished so were my first finishes for 2012.

The first weekend of December saw my youngest (Joshua) turn 30 and get engaged. We travelled to Ballarat for the occasion which was wonderful Josh and Robyn seem to be on top of the world and very happy.

Another stitching project I had to get finished before Christmas was an apron for the Patchwork group I belong to. Kaitlyn so graciously models the apron for me.

Has anyone ever seen a lemon like this one? We found this one on our lemon tree recently and thought it to be really strange. We counted 16 lemon forms coming on the one fruit.

During the lead up to Christmas I stitched these little embroideries and completed putting them together on Christmas Eve. I like to make something special each year so was happy to see these hanging over the door.

Also made these little bon-bons for gifts to special friends. I filled them with a little tree decoration and chocolates. They looked fabulous I thought.

Zoe Grace's Christmas stocking was finished in time to hang up for Christmas. This year I hope to get another stocking started for our soon to be son in law Craig.

(((HUGS))) Roz.
