Australia Day
Well what a lovely Australia Day long weekend we had. The weather was perfect. On Friday (Australia Day) Bren and I went down to Glenbrook for the Australia Day Fair. Every year they have craft stalls and food outlets along with their annual Gnome Display. Here are a couple of cute ones.

I have also been stitching furiously on Stargazer as I am anxious to finish her. I still feel like I have been working forever on the skirt:) I want to get her done soon as I am eager to start stitching my house for the Neighbourhood Round Robin that Carol has kindly organised. I am so excited to start this. I ordered my fabric today and can't wait for it to get here. LOL. I picked 40ct Porcelain form Silkweavers.

A great surprise

What a great surprise I got from Bren today. A brand new Janome sewing machine!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is computerised so it will be so much easier than my old machine. It also does blanket stitch which my old one didn't. No more hand blanket stitch!!!

I can't wait to have a play. What a wonderful hubby I have:)

On a stitching note I got a bit more done on Stargazer today. I am really enjoying this but it feels like I have been stitching the skirt forever. LOL.

Well, while I don't have a lot of news to share today I wanted to at least do an entry. I really want to try and do regular Blog entries as I really do love the Blogging world. VBG.

Christmas and New Year
Just catching up after a lovely Christmas and start to the New Year.

Bren and I went up to his parents for Christmas. It was such a relaxing couple of days. I got some wonderful pressies including this gorgeous gift from Carol. Unfortunately the picture is not very good as the camera angle makes it look wonky, but is isn't. It is so lovely!!!

Here are some photos of our day at the beach on Boxing Day up at Tea Gardens. I also hand fed a Blue Tongue lizard in Bren's parents back yard. I love lizards!!

Bren's mum and dad:)

A lovely dragonfly landed near me on Christmas day:) I just love them!!When we got home, Bren and I had a couple of days in Canberra where we saw the Egyptian Treasures from the Louvre exhibition. We also visited one of my favourite places, The Bird Walk. Here is a cute little Lorikeet nibbling Bren's ear:)

Now onto some stitching news. I just stitched the new Just Nan freebie and popped it in a whimzi frame.

And here is a progree shot of And A Forest Grew. I have just about finished section 14.
