Christmas time 2009!

Hi all,

let me take this opportunity to wish each and everyone who reads this blog a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

2009 has been a very interesting year for me - plenty of joy and success, but also a great deal of sadness with the death of my very dear dad. I have to be very honest right now - I am finding this time very very challenging - my mind is constantly running overtime and I am struggling with many thoughts and images which a very hard to clear from my mind.

Christmas day is going to be a nice quiet family day spent with my dear husband and two beautiful sons, with my beautiful dad not too far from my mind. I will talk to all my family at least once on Christmas Day. We are going to join some dear friends for some celebrations on Boxing Day.

I thought I would share with you some things I have been making for Christmas presents.......
........ a shirt for Essington - I sewed the name and the car on!
....... a top for friend of Tucker's (this one was actually a birthday present for a party we went to last weekend......
....... and another Christmas present. I have had a little help and got the idea from my friend Jo. She is amazing with fabric and card making, plus many other super skills too. You can check out her blog here.

In between typing this post I have just had a call from a very special friend who moved from Karratha to Broome in August. She called to say that on the 28th December she is going to come down and stay with us for a few days. We are very excited to see them. Their son and Tucker are very good friends, and they have not had the chance to meet Essington yet!

I had better go and get some more organising done. x
