Day Out

On Saturday my darling husband decided we would go on a barbie picnic for Australia Day.
Yeah l know we were a bit early celebrating Aussie Day but as Shane works on Tuesday we couldnt do it then. So we went across to Nagambie. Nice little town with a huge lake.
Do you like his hat. It was free in Saturdays sun.

This is Saturday evening we went out to Rubicon for a Barbie with BIL Greg and SIL Jo and niece Hayley.
We are going to hitch up the caravan and relax along the river here one weekend in Feburary with a group of friends .Should be fun.

Today l have made a ATC and Postcard display stand to display them when they come in the mail swapped from other people so there will be lots coming soon.
I made the Display out of a lid of a polystyrene box and covered it with a new Tea towel and l have just pressed pins in to hold it into place, very easy and only took about 10mins to do.

Hi again

Just wanted to show everyone 2 little projects l have been working on.

I have dicovered the joy of beading.

Just before Christmas l broke my ring finger on my right hand and so it made it difficult to hand sew, so had to find another project so decided l would give beading ago, and it didnt hurt the finger so of l went.

The hardest thing l found with beading was l didnt know when to stop, it was addictive.

I hope you like them.

Post a comment if you like them or not or am l talking to my self and as such going mad.?????
