"Oh dear me it's nearly 2017."

Hello,

December has flown by.


 Christmas has been and gone. Thanks Ainsley, Julian, Jacob and Jude for having us for the day. Lots of memories to keep and treasure.


 The Apricot tree has finished for the season. We started picking  only a few then it was a bowlful every day. Even had enough to make some jam one day. Looking forward to the next tree producing early in the year.


Sewing and crafting took a back seat this month but I did manage to do two more face washers for Jacob and Jude for Christmas. Designs are from Kreative Kiwi.


I found two tea towels that were blank in the sewing room. The Christmas design is from Urban Threads and the Kiwi is from Kreative Kiwi.

As 2016 comes to a close I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I hope 2017 brings Peace and Happiness to you all.

Happy days.
Bev C

A very happy new year to you and your family, Bev. Looking forward to peeking into your world often in the days ahead to see what you've been up to. So much fun to experience the opposite seasons whenever I visit.
