Happy New Year.

Sorry I've been gone so long, it wasn't intentional I assure you, I just didn't seem to find time to blog. So if you're still with me, best wishes for 2008 may it be a happy and productive year.

Now, please forgive me, but I do have to show off some of my goodies. This first picture is of the gift my dear son bought for me. Isn't she divine?

Ignore the blind cord and the window lights, just look at my fairy! She is supposed to be an earring stand, so she got to model the earrings DD gave me. I've got the best kids!

Hunney didn't do so bad either, he bought me a quilt kit. Cindys butterflies. The kit includes all the fabrics needed to make the top, beautifully presented in a basket as you see.

I can't get a better picture of this, I've tried several times in different lights, look here for a better view. The batiks in the kit are beautiful. I'm not ready to start this yet, I want to play with the fabrics some more first.

From the strong brightly coloured batiks, to soft muted pastel florals. This much smaller kit is a gift from DS Moya. I think I'll get on with this one soon. It's a little wall hanging and shouldn't take long to do once I put my mind to it.

Hunney has gone back to work today, and just as soon as the kids go back to school, I have to get ready to move house! So I'm not sure exactly when I'll get chance to put my mind to it but I will, and you'll see pictures. LOL

Thankyou to eveyone who sent their good wishes over the festive season. I hope your Christmas was all you wished for and that you have a wonderful and prosperous 2008. Happy New Year to you all.

Aren't you just so lucky that your people choose such wonderful things for you. And you are moving? Where?

Father Christmas did you proud! I thought I'd done well with 13 fat quarters (six which my brother and sister-in-law must have bought when they were on holiday in Alaska in the summer!) but your beautiful batiks and sherbert pastels are gorgeous. Looking forward to seeing what comes from them.
