Over the last 2 years I have often thought of my poor abandoned little blog. As I have struggled to deal with a massively increased workload during the day, I wanted to post, but so often I did not know what I wanted to say. I am still in that frame of mind. 2018 was… Read More
In January I finished the Stacy Nash project – and will post a photo of that once I have washed and blocked it, so I decided to pull out an old UFO – one of Lizzie Kate’s Double Flip series. I have started on the second chart – Love. It is a quick stitch, when… Read More

The school presentation balls are finished for another year. I love doing them, but boy do they take… Read More
Today we remember. For it is 100 years ago today that ANZACs invaded the Gallipoli peninsula in Turkey. Today we honour all Australians and New Zealanders who have followed in the footsteps of these brave men and boys (the youngest to die in Gallipoli was only 14!). They shall not grow old as we who… Read More
A time for families. Wishing you all a safe and happy Easter….
