Christmas Bear

This is a Christmas present i received from my
lovely friend Wendy-Sue who lives in the U.K.
All hand made and so perfect, she is so talented,
I envy her and her imagination... I am really so
lucky that each Christmas and each Birthday i
receive one of here creations.

Our Christmas

This is my beautiful grandaughter on Christmas
morning, isn;t she just adorable? Not that interested
in her gifts but found some technology that looked
of interest instead

Now Uncle Shaun show me how to use it please.
I have to know for the future and how i can ring Nana

These are the men in my life, as you can see all
varying ages.... young to old!

Caprice loves reading, the more books the better.
Not sure what is happening here but someone
isn't impressed at all.
This is a toy Caprice was getting instructions
to speak into... not that easy.

Here we go, instructions and demonstrations
will help..... eventually they did.

Lunch time at my sisters place, there seems to
be a lot hiding from the camera.

From the other end, more happy smiling faces.
Our meal was beautiful and we had a lovely day
with family. The weather was a bit gloomy but
we still manged to have an after noon of darts.

Fabric I Bought

I bought these fabrics on Saturday, thought they were
rather pretty, I am thinking i can use the brighter ones
for making some Christmas presents, now to find the time,
can someone send me some or tell me where to find it

What I Won

I won these at my favourite and best Yahoo Group C-R-A-F-T
it was a guessing competition for those that stayed home
and didn't get to go on the retreat.
Even though i hadn't been well it was a lot of fun.
Lauren was so gracious to run it while Khris was away
having fun.

This is what i won from
It was a guessing competition to guess Khris's birth weight.
After a lot of thought i was lucky enough to guess it.

This is my combined photo of my winnings, the mug bag has
already been used and there are no tea bags left in the holder,
i love my cups of tea. Waiting until Christmas to hang up my
lovely decoration.

Finished Bag

This is a bag i recently finished.
it is just a nice size, not too small
and not too big

Owl Bag

Well what a surprise, there was an Owl bag
to put my shopping in, he is super cool

Owl T.Shirt

I bought these pyjammas yesterday for my grandaughter Caprice, i thought they were just so cute, the owls are a hoot, i showed them to her but didn't mean a lot... well she is only 16 months old
This T. Shirt was just so nice i couldn't not but it.
There are so many things around with owls on them,
it is becoming contagious

What a talented lady she is, if only i were that clever

How Nice is This

This is another made by Wendy-Sue.
How life like is it?
Just adorable you must agree

Bridge Climb

We have been lucky to have some lovely friends
staying with us.
Two are from Holland and are my husbands
nephews in-laws, does thatmake sense??? I hope so.
The other are friends of theirs from Holland.
I know there are only three in this picture and i can
count, most of the time. One unlucky person wasn't physically
well enough to do the bridge climb but the others had a wow
of a time

We bought our son a gliding ticket for his birthday in June. There were a few cancelled days because of the windy weather.

Today it was a lovely clear and warm day, just ideal

This is a beautiful bear made by my friend
Olive who lives in the UK
The bear was for a charity auction and
raised 500 pound. Olive was elated and so
she should be. Isn't the nose exquisite and
eyes match so well.
Can you see the little earings?
