I thought I had better get some of the things I had been working on before Christmas blogged, otherwise people wouldn't believe that I sew.

Firstly, I wanted to show a picture of the Christmas present that I bought for my sister Mel. She is studying to be a naturopath, so when I saw this pendent I thought it would be perfect for her.

So once I had the pendent, I was looking through my mountains of fabric and found the perfect fabric to make a bag to go with it!!!

And a bag for my Mum. She can't stop raving about it.....but then she does like to talk a lot normally, so maybe it doesn't mean much...

OK, I had better run....I have to pick James up from daycare.

New Year, New Haircut

Happy New Year to everyone. Not much happened around here last night.....although we could hear fireworks in the distance. Does that count?

Most of our friends have little kids now, so I am guessing that they were all at home like we were. Or were they all out, and we just weren't invited??

Anyway, Christmas was just like it always is...busy. I have mixed feelings about Christmas. I enjoy all the food and I love giving presents. But I hate the stress of the cooking and the stress that some people put themselves through to buy a perfect present. Most of all I hate being asked, "What do you want me to buy you for Christmas?" I also don't like being told, "If you haven't bought anything for me yet, you can get me....." Anyway, that is my little vent over for the year....well on the blog anyway.

Alex bought me a new little camera that I can keep in my bag. Our other camera takes great pictures, but is a little big to carry around all the time.
So let me present some pictures......

Firstly, my sister took a family picture of us.

The Chocolate Cream Berry Pavlova.....too, too good!!

And James with his new haircut. Despite sitting there while the hair was being cut, it was still quite a shock to see him with hair so short. He looks SO grown up now. All day yesterday and today, Alex and I have been looking over at him and just shaking our heads in that the same boy?
