Christmas is over

With Christmas done and dusted for 2010 we can now concentrate on the New Year ahead and what highs and lows that may bring us.

Before I sign off from Christmas mode I just have not had to chance to thank all of my bloggy friends for their lovely warm Christmas wishes and from many of you Christmas cards received in the mail.  I would be impossible to show them all but I did want to share this one that I received from Mary Chow in Canada.  A most unusual timber Christmas post card, hand painted. 

Whats in store for me in the New Year....... lots of sewing and crafting time I hope.  I also have 2 more additions due to the family to add to my 3 grandsons, my step daughter Jessica is expecting twins in March (if she lasts that long), and I have not even made a start on their baby quilts yet so that my first project for 2010.  Here is my favourite picture of Christmas, with my sons little boy (my grandson) Leo, who is now quite an active little chappy.

10th Day of Christmas was lucky ole me :)

A big Christmas cheer thank you to Cheryll for her sensational bloggy 12 days of Christmas.  I have not been on blog for awhile with grandsons having 1st birthdays.  Son and other grandson arriving here from Townsville I have been otherwise occupied. 

So imagine my surprise when Mr Postman gave me a big pat parcel today as the lucky recipient of the 10th day of her 12 days of Christmas blog give away.

I received one Ham bag, a selection of Christmassy ribbons, a pack of 10 cards for giving and 10 pins for quilting.  Thank you so much Cheryll, you are truly a Christmas angel.
