Over the last two months I have been involved with 
a 6 month Christmas Santa swap we are to make or buy 
two gifts and send every month to our swap partner till December.
Then we get to open our gifts we have been receiving from each other, 
it so hard not to open them up right away my lovely swap partner 
so go over and check her blog out. Here is the first two months 
of my gifts I received.First parcel          
 Second parcel 

I have also made a baby shower 
gift for a friend ,
so I made some bunting for the nursery,
used peter rabbit material 
in a neutral colour to make the bunting.

Here is the finished product, 
it fitted nicely into the nursery decor
very well.

 Made the picture  for
my mum,
got the idea from pinerest.

                                         The owl  made for my daughter
                                               it is small cushion.

The bottom picture was part of the
winter swap I joined the owl is a
                                              wheat heat pack I made.

    I also made a library bag 
and bunting for my lovely 
little 4 year old niece,
from this lovely pink and white striped 
materiel with the John Deer logo 
on as she is a country girl at heart.
Well after a short break because of family life and work,I have been a bit busy with some
swaps and other home made gifts. So hello out they in blog land hope everyone has been well 
and also very creative. God has been a real strength through the family bombshell with my farther
and children to second marriage, sometimes we have the privilege to look after them as the mother is
still in Thailand. They are such lovely children and give you so much love, there ages are 8&4 yrs old.
So when they stay it is pretty busy around as it has been a while since small kids have been in this house.

As we remember our soldiers past and present here in a Australia on ANZAC DAY 25th April. 

We should never forget there sacrifice they made for us, to enjoy the freedom we have in this country we call home.

Here is photo of a wonderful man, who served his country in ww2. This wonderful man was my Granddad.
Who will all ways fondly be remembered as Pa by our family.

Thankyou to all that have fallen and returned home from the service for there country.
