Nanna and chicken no.1 whipping up some mince pies for our early Christmas celebration.
Grandad snoring on the lounge in front of the cricket (while the youngest two created an extraordinary din in the play tent!). Hmm... better not include a photo of Grandad!
Here are those cheeky little ones.
And I am trying to finish off a promised dress... complete with Chinese buttons... (couldn't resist including my pear pincushion in that shot - I'm so proud of it!)
And I'm pleased to announce that the avocado seed has sprouted! Now lets see if it survives transplanting...

May your tree point you towards heaven, may the star remind you of the one that lead to Jesus all those years ago, may the lights remind you of Christ - the light of the world, and may the candy cane remind you of his sacrifice for you.

I love these two co-ordinating ones - they're so yummy! (You're allowed to say that when you've made them yourself, right?). I love how the pattern matches across the strip. I plan to make lots of these ones!

I hadn't realised 11 people had been rescued from the waters! That would have been scary. The worst we've been affected is that I had to take a few detours to get to a friends house this afternoon to do some quilting... Oh, and a big rut or two in the driveway.
Last night we stepped out of the house and could hear two things: the chorus of frogs enjoying the rain, and the roar of flood waters going down the street.
And now for brunch: I sautéed some mixed berries with banana and honey and spread it on home-made bread toast... Mmmmm...
Extra prayers today for the people in India experiencing strife, and those in the world experiencing floods that wash away their entire livelihood.

You'll be pleased to know that I resisted the urge to photograph my pumpkins and tomatoes again today, despite my amazement at how much they've grown over the last week! I couldn't resist commenting on them, however....
P.S. to Reuben: hope you're recovering well from your operation. Was lovely to see you and your mum. xo

I did think of showing you more pictures of the pumpkins, and the beans winding their way up the posts in the garden.... but I considered the fact that maybe you don't need to see their progress every week.... And I could show you a photo of the bag I made this afternoon, but I'm still reeling over the fact that I forgot to interface it!! You know when it's time to take a break...
