I Have Been Busy

Since my last post I have been very busy. I have framed Sophia.

I have finished Isabella Johnstone and also framed her

I have nearly finished Harriet Burry and there is about another days stitching on her.

I have got this far on Hannah Lancaster and I am currently filling in the bricks on her house.

I have also made a few of these lovely patchwork cushions for the family. I saw these being made one Sunday afternoon when the boys all went to the Football (Soccer). I was able to watch a TV show that I don't normally watch as it isn't my DH's cup of tea and I saw these lovely cushions being made by hand. What intrigued me was that they were filled with unprocessed bran and scented oils. I have also added lavender to mine and I had added lavender oil to the mix. My spare room smells quite delightful at the moment lol.

For an Australian Summer today, it is quite cold. At 6 a.m. it was 5 degrees C in the Mountains and by the sky it looks as if it could snow. If it did it would only be a light dusting and probably wouldn't settle.
I hope you all have your Christmas preparations in hand. I currently have a boiled pudding bubbling away on the stove. It is always a major feat when I make one of these and you wouldn't believe the washing up. Oh boy lol.
If I don't post again, before Christmas, I hope that you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I hope that Santa is good to you.
Merry Christmas.
