OMG Finishes

I am just popping in to wish all my fellow bloggers a very Merry Christmas and I look forward to a year ahead where I will blog more frequently rather than just visiting others blogs. There is no doubt that there are the most amazing people in blogland and as I read on a blog recently (sorry can't remember whose)  'friends live in my computer'. I know I have not posted alot this year but with moving country and settling into a new lifestyle things have taken a bit of adjusting.
I am off to Brisbane, Australia, on Wednesday to have a week with family and friends for Christmas. They have been having alot of heavy rain over there which is so unusual  and it will be a change to experience that weather over there when we in fact are having lovely summer weather. Theoretically it should be the other way around but my umbrella and raincoat are packed.
This year I took part in Maree's 6 item swap. Last week I received my parcel from my swap partner Carol and I am still doing a dance. I had not come across Carol's blog before so it was very exciting to meet a new friend. Carol made me the most divine bag, I just love it, (that has already had a few outings) as well as a pincushion and needlebook. She also included some other gifts that were just amazing. Thank you so much Carol.

This is what I sent Noela.
 I did do alot of shopping at Hancocks of Paducah but I won't show you all the bootie- think Kaffe, and more Kaffe as well as some solids. The postie must've got sick of visiting me, but I was so happy.

So to all  my blogging friends enjoy the festive season with family and keep the meaning of Christmas close to your heart.
To leave you with-
I pulled a piece of paper out of my letterbox the other day and read "MERRY CRISMAS". I have since found out it was from the five year old next door- I just love it and will keep it among my treasures of Christmas.


  1. Have a lovely holiday in Brisbane and you will be right with your wet weather gear packed.
    The swap you received and then the one you sent are all gorgeous. I love swaps.
    How cute is your special letter. A real treasure.
    Thank you for your christmas wishes. You have a good one too with your friends and family.'Looking forward to seeing you in the new year.

  2. Awww that is so cute that the 5 year old next door would write you a note. I like your goodie bag, the one you sent and the one you got. Have a very Merry Christmas.

  3. Merry Christmas, Marls! It has been a pleasure to become acquainted with you this past year, and I wish you a wonderful 2011. Living in such a gorgeous country, how can life not be wonderful? Have a safe and enjoyable trip to Brisbane. I hope the time you spend with family and friends is just perfect. Blessings on you.
