Happy New year

 Wishing you all a very happy New year. Hope 2024 holds much joy and happiness and lots of stitching of course. I will finish up with my Advent Stitchalong from Instagram. It was fun to stitch.

Plus a few family pictures from the last few weeks.

 We are a bit sad here this week as Amy and Gav and the boys have moved to Perth!!! We will miss them so much. But we will also manage so I had best share our Christmas with them all. We had lots of celebrations and it was lovely to have Ma with us as well. Too much food and lots of fun and presents.

Here are a few of the children on Christmas morning.

New games are always fun.

We also went to church both days and on Sunday some people dressed up as the nativity.

More celebrations

 There have been some more lovely celebrations over the last few days.....not counting Christmas itself. Last Thursday the Wednesday night girls celebrated at High tea at the Hyatt. We had a lovely afternoon and there were gorgeous gifts too.

This was my gift this year. I must make me one now! I received the lovely decoration and zippered pouch above. We were all very spoilt.
On Saturday I enjoyed High tea again with the Friday night stitching girls at Parliament house. Heather took some lovely photos so this will be a bit photo heavy.

My gift this year were these lovely decorations. The second set are for me!!!
We also lovely seeing Fiona and David on Thursday night and Fiona made me this amazing little canvas work cutter holder! It is gorgeous and will be very useful.

Another little gift stitched earlier this year were these little cross stitch decorations. They are very small!
