Hello, I think that we are ready for christmas now. I would love to make one of these, I have all of the bits and pieces here, I think that I would add cut out stars. We have our kiwi cousins here for a christmas holiday, very exciting! I have 4 boys in the pool at the moment, luckily I can watch them from my new sewing room, which is now all finished, it will be painted and have a new floor early next year! Leah

Our Advent Calendar

hello, I created this calender a few years ago now. I have put it on display again this year and added 4 chocolate jaffa's to each draw, the problem is each day when we open it there are always, 1, 2 or 3 chocolates missing!! I have been informed today that Grace has eaten all chocolates from No.22! We will have to find a higher self to put it on. Not many sleeps to go now!! Leah

Exciting Plans for 2010!

Hello, I have worked out my "craft Market Agenda" for the first half of 2010, which I am quite excited about!
Now I just need to plan my work roster family commitments etc. around it.
As you can see some of the markets are yet to be confirmed, I've submitted applications to them all so fingers crossed!

Here is a pic of what will be my new sewing room for 2010, the larger room will be our new family room, I hope to be much more organised with my sewing, I will have so much more space, yay!!!

These little windows from the kitchen will be saved and put in here.

Gracie will finally have her own bedroom too, I can't wait to decorate it! Thanks so much for dropping in, don't forget to enter my giveaway. Leah
