Last Friday our scrap/patch group met and decided to continue on into the night! It ended up being a "Scrap 'til Midnight" evening! We had takeaway tea from the Tavern - fish 'n chips. Ladies that were able to come for part or the full day were - Jillian, Emily, Rose, Dee, Linda and Belinda. As it was also the start of basketball we had a few people popping in to visit us and have a look at what we were doing!!! A GREAT NIGHT, and HOPE TO DO IT AGAIN ONE DAY, probably after harvest!

Xmas Cards

The other day I started to make my Christmas cards! Simple, but I think they look okay!

Next one is on 26-28th March 2010, so hope you Condi girls and our Dongara friend (ex-condi) and our town friend can come next time! Thanks to Karen, Sharon, Gayle and Lis and helpers for a fantastic weekend! Linda S

First Christmas

This is a class taught to us by Lis Cassey -"Be Merry" - layout of my grand-daughter's first Christmas. Loved the lace doily that we used at the back of the photos and patterned papers. This one also required a bit of machine sewing to construct the pocket to slip a piece of journaling into!

Grand Finals

A recent photo of Mietta - now 14 months old!
Have been busy lately getting photos together for the layouts for the Hyden Retreat! Can't wait!

Last week we had Graham's family stay with us. His niece Prue, and myself did a little photo shoot with Mietta. The photos came out great, so I am excitedly planning to use some of them in future layouts!
