Well, that is that; another Christmas done and dusted!

We had a Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve as my kids were busy on Christmas day – we are not too phased about that. We had a fairly pleasant time and I got the new Pink CD. From Coralie.

Sean and Terri have left to go to visit his dad – they left at 1 am this morning.

They are pretty serious about one another – they want to move in together – they have even found a garden cottage nearby to us. Sean and Terri went out about 4 years ago. So it isn’t that they don’t know each other. I think it is a good idea for both of them. Terri’s mother thinks she is such an innocent – if only she knew!!

Anyway, I hope you all had a great time, I am happy to say it is all over and no more expectations!!

me again!

You know how it is, the less you blog, the less you feel you have to share – it is true as you all know.

Anyway – quick update on my life.

We are celebrating Xmas on Christmas Eve, a first for me – the kids are all busy on Xmas day, Sean is driving to see his dad on Xmas day, and Coralie and Henk are going to his sister on Xmas day.

Nicole is flying up to us on Xmas day – at 21h30 – a bikkie late!! Past my bed time!! But that will be fun as we always have a good time together.

I am still quilting away, yesterday I went to Mr Price Home and bought a trestle table – and it is now installed in the 2 spare room – it is a bit small – I may need another one. If you could have been there when I had help to load it in the car – hell it was funny!

I had already bought an air cooler – so the car’s boot was full. You see, I have a plastic crate in there as well that holds shopping bags and cooler bags for the shopping trips – so what with that and a box of quilted Christmas stockings..) So my new purchases had to go in the interior of the car. Ha!!! The seats were both rolled down supine, and then finally I could get the top in to the car, the trestles themselves were also on the back seat. I had two guys trying to get the whole shebang into the car, it was too funny! And at this end? – Sean just took it out – no effort at all!! Sean very kindly put together the trestles and I had my quilting stuff off the dining room table and upstairs in about ten trips – yes there is a lot of it.

(So, Mr Misery, when you say sarkily “So will this stuff be off the dining room table soon?” – done in less than twelve hours – and just don’t dare discuss how I spent some of MY money – snarl – yes, a bad moment in our home, an unusual thing. And it is unusual for himself to be concerned with how much money I spend, but lately…).

I will try to show you once again another photo of the bag I made, and it has already been sold – good for me!! Nope - failure!

My auntie Jean is hanging in there, she is taking limited visitors and is starting to speak, I haven't had an update for a while, so I imagine things are progressing well.

Chat soon, y'all!!

Oops – problem:

On Sunday is the craft fair, and I have a problem - I have just sold 5 bags – yay on one hand – money! And on the other – boo, now I have little stock!!

Panic, back on; gotta make bags!!!

P.S. My auntie Jean is hanging in there, apparently there is cause for cautious hope.

P.P.S. Courtney had her baby on the 10th, she says he is beautiful! I will post a picture when I get one.

Sounds of Silence

I decided, as I am just so darn busy that to keep you all enthralled I should post pictures of my bits I am quilting; that could keep you busy with eye candy, instead of just being bored with ‘the sounds of silence’.

Last time I tried to post a picture it was a doggone failure, let’s try one more time! Yup, and again. I will try again soon.

Many, many thanks to Barbara for the gift I received in the post lately – I am absolutely in love with a lovely little fob, with a tiny frog on the end. Thank you Barbara, from the bottom of my heart.
