Hard to believe....finally I have finished the ornaments for Christmas 2010. Once I got the sewing machine out and got into the swing of things, the finishing took no time at all.
Feel the Magic - Midsummer Nights Dreams
Wisemen Came - Shepherd's Bush
Christmas Jewels - Elizabeth Designs
Santas Buddies - Angel Stitchin
I feel on a bit of a roll now...I set aside time every night to do some stitching. And its great because I look forward to it....I don't see it as a chore or something I must get around to doing, at some stage during the evening.
The weather here is shocking at the moment....very strong winds on Monday and today. And my friends in Greymouth had flooding again, but thank goodness the height extensions on the flood wall, stopped the town flooding. When you see pictures of the Grey river up higher than the road, you realise what an awesome engineering feat that flood wall is.
And then there was the 1 year memorial to the Pike River 29 Miners last weekend, may they rest in peace, but may they also be brought out of the mine where they still lie. A year has gone fast - its seems like only yesterday that news of the explosion circulated around the town....I think time stood still!
