Final Project for 2010

I didn't get a chance prior to Christmas to show my final project for 2010 and this was it.

I made a Santa sack for each of my three boys. We spent Christmas away from home this year and the sacks were great for the boys to put under the tree at father in laws house in anticipation for Santa Clause making a visit, which he did!

They were very simple to make, Christmas fabric for the sack, coordinating cord for the drawstring and felt for their names.


Happy New Year!

I finally have the time to blog to say Happy New Year!

We are already past the half way mark of January and I have been fixated on watching the news lately - all the devastation of mother nature, in particular the major flooding in Queensland and now in Victoria. My heart goes out to everybody impacted by such disasters, especially to those people who have lost their homes or their loved ones.

We are fortunate that we live in a country that bands together to support each other in times of need. There have been so many acts of kindness helping to keep spirits high, and so many individuals and organisations that are fundraising or helping in others ways. So many people are going to be affected by the recent events for years to come, so get behind them and support them in any way you can.
