Season's Greetings

Christmas has come and gone and I hope it was a truly cheery time for you.  I have had my daughter and her family here and they will be with us for a couple more weeks too. For us it was wonderful to spend Christmas with two little ones in the house and see the anticipation  and excitement in their faces as Christmas unfolded.

This was my 3 year old grandson's top Christmas wish, and he still sleeps with it in his bed at night.

Yes, its a stop sign! What's it for? Well, it's to stop the traffic! You have to wonder at the workings of a 3 year old's mind.

The house has been busy these last few days. There was great concentration yesterday using the new cookie cutters to bake cookies with Mom and wearing his new pirate apron.

This sunny little chap makes the most delightful burbles and goo sounds. They are difficult to describe but they remind me of the character Morph in Tony Hart's TV Show that was aired in South Africa in the 1970's and 80's. I just love listening to him as he explores his little world.

Did I do much stitching before Christmas? Yes, but it was all on the sewing machine. With 4 grandchildren there were lots of aprons to make, bean bags to sew, and warm tracksuit tops to finish in time for the big day. Doesn't Aidan look sweet in his little top?

As this year draws to a close, enjoy the rest of the festive season and I wish you a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2015. May you also have many happy hours of stitching to look forward to in the coming year.


  1. Sounds great, Lyn. Your machine has been put to good use. Enjoy the rest of your time with your family - and Happy New Year.

    1. Hi Jillian. Thanks for all the good wishes and a very Happy New Year to you too.
