What a week!!

What a busy week we have had!  Trying to get lots of Christmas stitching finished so I can't show some things - because they are surprises!!     Here are some beautiful little birds made by Jenny!

Some of the many beanies that have been made by my Needlework ladies for our Australian soldiers!

A busy week .... a sad funeral followed by a beautiful wedding - congratulations to Lalaine and Sam!

A welcome to baby Indiana - so terribly cute - and I got to have a cuddle with her between the wedding and the reception!

Good friends Maree and Dave - parents of beautiful Indiana!

Off to Sydney for a quick one day trip for a family reunion - my Aunty (in pink) with her new husband Roger, and my parents!

My sister Wendy on the right, my cousin Margot and I having a celebratory glass of champagne!

And then the Christmas parties started ..... beautiful gift .... thankyou ladies .... I'm blessed to stitch with you and call you my friends!

Tuesday night Needlework ladies celebrating our Christmas dinner last night - some of the ladies have beanies on which they have knitted for our soldiers!   Back row left to right - Diana, Robyn, Beth, Asta, Renate, Lynn, Cheryl, Dale, Carol and Helen.  Front row left to right - Fiona, Helen, Wendy, Chris, Leslie, Shirley, Lynne !!

Maree has taken my place on the bottom left of this photo - thanks Maree for taking the photo above (and have a happy birthday this Friday!!!)  Thanks ladies for a great year at Needlework!  I look forward to getting together again in 2012!  And to those who weren't able to join us last night - Merry Christmas - your homework is in the mail!!
