Just Made It!

Well, the last day of the month, and I am just writing another post.  I have been busy and will show you the results in a couple of days (or two)

We celebrated Australia Day on Thursday January 26th and I had fun making some little treats for a party I was attending

It was a hot day, so nice cool jelly and watermelon were my treats of choice!

Caramello Koala in Gum Tree (Green Jelly) and Freddo Frog in Pond (Blue Jelly) .  As we were going to have these around the pool, I made them in plastic takeaway cups, just to be safe.

Then I used by Australia Map Cookie Cutter to cut out some shapes from the watermelon
Lots of fun.
I have already started making my Christmas Cards for this year.  What?  I hear you say?  Well, last year I was so rushed during November and December I decided to start early, and you have to admit this is "early".  Will post some photos soon.
February tomorrow already.  The days are going so quickly.  I have to say, Cindy has had a health free month, so I am so pleased about that!.  We start some training next month, a little late, but it was extremely difficult to find a trainer within a 100 klm radius of where I live.  She has naughty traits already, so hopefully we can correct them with training, nothing serious, just naughty. 
Until next time

Welcome 2017

Well, I have made a promise to myself this year to ensure that I have at least one blog post per month.  Last year my blog was neglected badly.  Five days into the new year, and all I have to show is a photo of my beautiful puppy Cindy, nearly 11 months old now.

I have had visitors staying over the Christmas - New Year period, so I did not even venture into the craft room.  Then my first sewing job, will be mending, unfortunately.  Things I have been putting off for a number of months. 
I have plans to use up a lot of my fabric this year, making charity quilts and bags.  So once everything gets back to normal (or as close to normal as possible) I am making a start.
Do you make plans at the start of the year?  Do you follow through?
