Just in the (St) Nick of time!

Two gifts that are needed for today, lucky it was Sunday yesterday and I could spend the afternoon (and night) sewing.
I made a very cute bag with a Red Brolly stitchery on it to fill with some lovely Tassie wine for my neighbours who have very kindly given me a lift to work most days since I have moved to the city.

The cushion is for my very good friend Wendy, and I am going there for tea tonight so I had best be out the door!
The stitchery is Red Brolly too, if I remember rightly!

Nearly ready

The tree is decorated, the lights are flashing and the reindeer are here. I think I am ready.......oh wait what about the presents?

I love my Christmas momentos, the guardsman bought at the Buckingham Palace shop when I was in London recently and the two little hand-painted glass baubles I found in Durnstein, Germany.

It was young M's birthday last weekend and I finally threw of my sewing ennui and made him this little bag to hold his books and pencils.

Luckily I had finished Miss C's little bag before my holiday or it would never have made it to her on time. Hidden inside was a cute little sundress with hearts all over it. Hopefully arrived in Melbourne on time.

Look what happened yesterday!

Remember I said I was waiting for the electrician yesterday morning?  Well I now have a new stove installed, only the second one ever in this house. The other is about 55 years old. I just had to take a photo of the new stove with my Harrod's tea towel. :-)

The first photo is my old stove, moved out of its regular spot ready for the installation. It is kinda sad to see it go.

I am in trouble

A friend wanted to know what I had been doing since I arrived home as there have been no posts. I promise to mend my bad ways! :-)

This morning, while waiting for the electrician, (that is another story!)I went for a wander around the garden and found some beautiful flowers amongst the weeds.

The first plant is a teatree called Rudolph. I wonder why? :-)
