Before I go on about gifts I have been given and gifts I have been giving, I have a special photo to share.
Shirley and I met our online friend, Linda from Billabongs 2 Bling at the Bush Christmas a week or so ago.
It was lovely to catch up with Linda and finally get to meet her. Bush Christmas is when the bush crafters come to town and sell their wares. It was really beautiful with lots of delicious things to look at.
I don’t think I have ever shown this piece of loveliness before. It was a special gift from Shirley some years ago, and it hangs from the knob of my little sewing table in the lounge room for all to admire.
I made this sewing dilly bag for a friend who has left Toowoomba to go and live on Flinders Island, Tasmania.
She has always admired my dilly bag like this, so now she has her very own. I think it is a pattern from ‘Country Pieces’. It is a pattern I have had for many, many years.
There are some other things I have been making which can’t be shown here just yet. I have very much enjoyed working on some collage cards which I will show in the next week or so.
Leaving you with this photo of the beautiful landscape of Middle Lagoon on the Western Australia Dampier Peninsular. Middle Lagoon has many different aspects to it – such an amazing place to visit.
