Just thought I would show you…..

Hello all you lovely friends out there in blog land :)

How are you after your Christmas? I am well and actually feeling rather fat….ate too much but what the heck…it is Christmas :)

I missed my kids and grandkids as they are in Western Australia and I am here in Melbourne, but we chatted on the phone for ages so that was good.

I was spoilt with lots of goodies and not only from family members but from the Craft Forum and also the gorgeous Gum Nuts sisters.

I will show you things I got in a later post but I just wanted to show you my old enamel jugs and some of my old tins.




I love collecting these and I still have some packed away in boxes because there just isn’t anywhere to put them in our house.


I dont know if I told you or not but I got a Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus for Christmas. I got the Wii Fit a couple of weeks before Christmas because my husband wanted to make sure it worked right hehehehe. I didn't mind as I wanted to try it out too. If you ever get the chance to get one then go for it …..they are great :)


Now that Christmas is all over I can now concentrate on next year. I am having a monthly BOM, I have started it and am excited at how it is turning out. I will have the first block available for download on the 1st January 2010 so I hope you like it too.

There is appliqué, needle turn and embroidery in the blocks, so something for everyone. Also the blocks are different sizes to add interest.

Here is a sneak peek…just for you :)



Join me in creating these fun BOMs so check back on the 1st January 2010 and there after on the 1st of each month until the last one on June 1st 2010. All up there will be 6.

Happy New Year to each and every one of you

Hugs To all……Vicki

Hi Vicki,
Wow, what a collection.
I'm sorry you couldn't be with your children and grand children for Christmas-hopefully you can catch up with them some time in the near future.

Oh, you new quilt looks very inviting, however tricky-will it be frustrating for a near beginner?
Best wishes for 2010
