January Finishes and three down

I have finished my coin quilt, washed it and now waiting to give it a little press before a pic. Finally. I put the top and back together in a weekend then took two months to finish it!! AND I had all the stuff.... No excuse really.

border fabric was in my stash and matched
peiced back using some of the leftovers

Today I also finished a little bear for Luckys Huggle drive. He turned out cute...a little wonky but he is worthy of a huggle. I also finished stuffing a chicken that I had 3 parts stuffed (a fair few months ago) just need to get some more done and they will be heading over to Adelaide...
We are waiting patiently to go to Adelaide

and my last finish which is the best one for me is a dummy clip for Isaac (hope now he will just sleep through) we lost his other one at Australia Zoo just after new year. I have put it off and thought todays the day
I will post pics later
Till then Geniene

Butterflies and Hexi's

Today I recieved my feb hexi from Elizabeth Kenny. Elizabeth used fabric that reminds her of water and our gardens need lots of water. She also sent me a butterfly that will definatley find it's way into my garden. I think I will sew it onto the centre that way it won't get lost in the relm that is!!!

Thanks Elizabeth and I am glad to be one of your first...
till then Geniene

The last of Advent and final gifts

Sorry for the delay in me not updating my advent...SLACK is the man word but I think I did pretty good to get that many days in a row!!!!
Whilst away I had minimal access to the web. Well not really but it was hard to try and upload pics,wrangle kids and not take up too much time on the oldies computer.
So here are the final days
from top left is day 22, 23 and 24 and the bottom right is Rhiannons
day 21 gift which I let her open on christmas

This is the WONDERFUL Day 25 gift that Jeanette made for the littlies.
There is two little pillows and it has been used lots since we've been home to lay on in the lounge to watch the new movies they got for christmas. WOW thank you so much..

These are my comfie slippers that I have been wearing around the house since I got them. They are a little big but so comfie and I love them.
I loved being apart of this years advent and really want Jeanette(banksia Grange) To know how truley grateful I am to her for all the wonderful gifts the Kids and I recieved. Thay had so much fun playing along.
Once again Thank you
Till next post Geniene XXX
