This week has been about celebrations. There were of course some minor downers as well.

Monday was the last day of Open Playgroup for my son and daughter.

Santa came to visit. Just to say, my kids are very stranger danger when it comes to Santa. My little boy wouldn't go anywhere near him and to top it off he has an aversion to any sort of wrapping paper. He hates getting presents. Yes that's right, he hates to receive and unwrap presents. It takes him ages to even look at a new present when we unwrap them.

My minor downer for the week, my new scar wasn't healing the right way and the Doctor had to re cut and restitch it back together again. Not impressed really.

Tuesday I celebrated my birthday. I received some lovely gifts and I have to wait for my new IPhone 4s as there were none in stock. This is what I received. 
Measuring Cups

I also was able to catch up with my girlfriend Michelle and her Mum, Heather. I basted some more of my Ahhh hexies. I was also taken out to dinner. So the whole birthday was not too bad but I was sore from Monday.

Wednesday was another trip to the Doctor to check my new stitches.

Thursday was the last day of Rostered Playgroup for my little girl. She loves Playgroup and starts Pre School next year. This is her second year and she will miss it. She was so excited to tell Santa her Christmas request. REAL Fairy wings and REAL Pixie Dust so she can really FLY. If anyone has ideas about some Pixie Dust that doesn't involve glitter I would be very interested.

I finished off my Kris Kringle for the Murray Mallee Quilters Christmas Party. Sorry I forgot to take a photo of the finished gift but here is one of part of the present. I brought a new mug and Christmas cake to go with it. Can you guess what it is??

On Saturday I attended the Christmas Party. It was for lunch and I had a great time. Here is a photo of my Kris Kringle present and the door prize I received. My little girl has eaten my chocolates.

In amongst my trips to the Doctor, parties and celebrations, I did manage some more hexagon diamonds. I had lots of sitting and waiting at the Doctor surgery so I had lots of time to stitch with no interruptions. Here they are.

Now that my birthday is over, its time to decorate for Christmas. Tree is up waiting for presents to be wrapped.

  1. You have been one busy girl!
    I have those very same measuring cups--got them for Christmas last year from a friend. So last month she gave me the matching measuring spoons for my birthday. I collect Russian nesting dolls, so these are a fun way to extend the collection into the kitchen.
    Your hexies look really good!


I love to see what people write. Please leave me a comment.
