SSCS 2013

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas day, 
my family and I had an excellent day, 
lots of laughs, good company and great food
and no dishes to do!

got up early and went for my morning walk, 
so glad I did...

presents were opened and this is my beautiful present from Ana Maria
a beautiful dresden plate cushion cover is glorious colours that suit my lounge to a T!
(just need to get a bigger cushion insert than I have)
and a lovely wall hanging for next Christmas...

thank you so much Ana Maria
your presents are very much appreciated, I love them.

Christmas decorating

well with Christmas almost upon us, 
here is my decorating for this year, 
a bit understated as I haven't had the time to bring everything out...
 Santa group by the front door
 Snowmen and trees on the other side of the front door
 more Santa's in the lounge
 the hutch with snowmen and HollyAnna and some fairy lights for night
 putting the coonara to good use for cards and some small trees
and two of my favourite stitcheries
 the tree in silver and purple, 
with the lights flashing blue and red
and with the lights flashing green and orange

wishing you all a very 
I hope that Santa brings just what you have wished for this year, 
stay safe if traveling over the break

yesterday when I got home there was a parcel waiting on the table...
it's here!
my beautiful handmade mobius pendant
 that I won from Coolabah Charms in their November giveaway...

It is just lovely!
the inner circle has my girls names 
and the outer one has 
Dare To Dream.

A very special piece and one that I will treasure, 
thank you to Trudi at Coolabah Charms,

at an end

my short holiday!

tomorrow it's back to reality...
that 4 letter word that pays the bills...
is calling my name.

What can I say? 
not much...

my mojo seems to have left me today...
so many things I could be doing, that I'm not...

there is plenty of stitching that needs doing,
but I have done none of it today...

maybe the weather is to blame...
34 degrees here in Melbourne, 
not used to it yet, 
thank goodness for AC!

anyway if you find my mojo, can you send it back to me?
I really need it!

instead I have been playing with my Christmas present to myself...
my new laptop...
loving it!
