joy to the world...










This morning I found my Christmas mojo, after gazing upon a most beautiful project from none-other than the sublime 'dottie angel'....

I have to confess that last year I did not bother with Christmas at all. No tree, decorations or presents. This year we will have just moved into our new home in Panna, so I want to make the Christmas day special for the three of us and start a few new traditions. Especially as miss Zavian is two now, and I want to create special memories for her.

Now, dottie angels project is for a 'terribly nice table runner' but I decided to make a wall hanging instead. It is still a work in progress, a few finishing touches are needed, but since making it I have gone back to gaze upon it a few times and I am quite chuffed with how it has turned out. I think I will be making a few others to be its friend...

This morning we headed to the beach so Levi could catch some abalone. Tonight we will enjoy a seafood feast with friends on the back porch. Summer has arrived!
