More Presents

We had a lovely Christmas.  Lots of time with family and friends - what more could we ask for?

Elizabeth and Matt opening presents
Peta and Jenni opening presents at Peta's Mum and Dad's (we went there for Christmas lunch)
And this is Boxing Day sweets - Caramel, Choc, Banana Trifle - the recipe is in the latest "Family Circle"; DE-licious

This beautiful tablerunner is the Christmas Day present from Christine for our on-line group's swap.


I don't have photos of all of the presents I made for Bec.


Some are - fun:  one of these punchneedle lollipops wrapped in a machine-embroidered tea towel.


Tree:  one of the reindeer star decorations.


Christmas Day present - Brigitte Giblin hexagon bag made in Fig Tree fabrics


On Christmas Eve just after dinner there was a huge lightning strike.  All the power went out and, luckily, it came back on when we flipped the circuit breaker/earth leakage switch.  Found out later that our wifi had copped the bulk of the lightning strike and it has blown.  Thanks to Chooky I can now access the internet through my mobile phone till we get to the shops to buy a replacement.  I am most thankful that no-one was on the landline phone at the time.

The lightning strike must have been scarily loud! Glad only the wifi was struck. I adore the table runner Christine made for you! Chain link patterns are so effective I think.
