Don't you just love Sam's grin?
I'm very sorry that I've not posted anything for so long. Just before Christmas, I had some abdominal surgery and to tell you the truth, I'm still not feeling 100%. I feel so tired and it's taking me ages getting enough oomph to start crafting again. Our Q.C.W.A. meetings start up again on the 4th of February, so I'm hoping they'll motivate me - We'll be starting our new separate craft day this year with crewel embroidery. Looking forward to that as I find hand-embroidery very relaxing and enjoyable.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas - understandably, mine was a very quiet one.
Only last week, I joined our local Freecycle group. The group was set up for people who want to "recycle" things instead of throwing them away and everything posted must be free. I advertised a monitor and printer I no longer used which was very appreciated by a pensioner who picked it up the following day. I also received a "Steam Dream" steam cleaner in great condition and a huge pile of scrapbooking, stamping and papercraft magazines and 2 Memory Makers books on Scrapbooking. I was rapt.
Here's the link for anyone wanting to join their local group. Just type in your area and country.

    Yes, I love Sam's grin---he is just too cute. My son is named Sam and he is "too cute" as well. Anyway, I would like to ask you permission to do a painting from your photo of Sam. You can check out my work at:
    Thanks Debbie

    Hi Helen, Thanks for your comment on Eleanor and Ruby. You have a no reply email so had to leave a reply here. Yes, I live just across the way at Westbrook. I got the lemon at Bunnings - just love their new nursery. You can also get a lime and also blueberry too in the same containers, so I think they are all good for pots. I have also seen them at Springs Garden World in Spring St. Toowoomba. Thanks again for stopping by. Leisa
