Merry Christmas

Just a quick message ... thanks to all of you who have visited my blog this year have a fabulous Festive Season ... I hope to post a bit more regulary from mid January when my overseas visitors have left ... having fun with them at the moment today we were Kayaking (Hubby and I on our new kayaks!!!) how energetic... it was a nice 28 degrees c but pretty windy especially paddling back down the river into the wind ... could end up with huge arm muscles haha! Haven't had much chance to do crafty stuff but hope to get to it at the end of next month! So good wishes to all :-) Oh I forgot ...the pic is of one of the 3 Xmas 2008 bobbin which are in my catalogue!

ATC Christmas Cards

Hi All -Well the Lace Fair last Saturday went very well... I sold lots of my Hand Painted Lace Bobbins ... and the money earnt will go back into my "Lace fund" (for next year's Australian Lace Guild Conference and also for the International Lace Congress which I hope to attend mid 2010 in Japan (never been there so would be brilliant if I can save enough)). Here are some pics of 4 ATC Christmas cards which I made a couple of weeks ago as a swap with 4 ladies from the Australian online Lace Group which I belong to... I posted them off last Monday but I am still waiting on the ones for me .... :-( a few people are already receiving theirs ... it's the disadvantage in living in the world's most isolated capital! ho hum! I am also working madly on my wall panel which I want to get finished a week Wednesday before our UK family arrive to stay for 4 weeks.
