Snippets of life.........

Have just finished making this pear pincushion for a blogging friend. Its made using a Heather Bailey pattern and I have had it cut out ready to put together for a few months now but didn't really have a reason to make it...until now. I hope the recipient likes it.

And this is another gift I've been working on but can't show you any more till it reaches its destination.

We're in the middle of the school holidays here and have been just hanging out at home doing stuff like baking double chocolate brownie....... it's all gone now....

trying to complete this jigsaw....

Enjoying the spring sunshine and having picnics, oh and painting those toenails in the photo neon orange!

Walking deep into the bush to see waterfalls and ....

.............tranquil streams with moss covered rocks. So nice to get away from it and enjoy the tranquility of these local bush walks which are literally on our doorstep.

Also wanted to let you know that Georgie of All things Crafty is giving away a lovely cross-stitch book to one lucky reader so go on over and say "hello"!!

I'm sure your friend will love the pincushion. I just finished making the Henrietta turtle pincushion by Heather Bailey and it turned out great. I love it.

I wish I was on holiday now, too...but alas, I am not.
