Xmas love...........

this weekend I want you to stop being busy and flat out........
Christmas will happen whether we are ready or not............
Take some time to make something OR do something for someone you would NOT normally give or do something for............
spread some christmas love...........
come on I challenge you........
it's doesn't have to be huge (but it could be)...........
it can be small and simple most importantly give some Christmas love...........
invite a neighbour for a Christmas drink, invite someone extra for Christmas lunch who will be on their own, pot up a little plant/cutting from your garden as a gift, cook some Christmas goodies to package up, make a little ornament, do a kind deed to help someone, hold a door open, let someone be served before you, pick some flowers from your garden to give to someone, so many simple things you could do...........

.........take care til next time.....Chookyblue.........

Thanks....

Shez has been spreading some christmas cheer around........it's on my dining table as a decoration...............currently all the presents are being put on the table as I saw a mouse running around the other night so thought I won't pop them under the tree just yet............
thanks so much Shez............it's just lovely and perfect for my table as I had nothing for it...........
&&&
Glorious day today............lovely temps under cloudy cover all day..........
no rain but it was a nice max 28 deg.....

fussy cutting...........

I am just loving EPPing.............
The Home Patch had these great "fussy cutting viewers" to help with fussy cutting EPP's
I wanted to get the honeycombs but they had sold out so I got the 6 sided diamonds instead...........
They are getting more in............you can find them here.......
So then you can look at a piece of fabric like this...........yeh that might work.......
but add the mirror and instantly you can see what effect you will get.........so suddenly "yeh that might work" to wow that looks great..............
move it around on the exact same spot and you get a totally different look..............
and I have not cut anything yet.........
some patterns show up once you see all the repetition and you just have to go "wow"....
I have been tempted by "Lucy Boston" for so long...........
When I saw Sandy @ Shiralee Stitches was doing a Lucy BOM then I just had to join in..........
you can join in too..........
anyway must go................Lucy is calling.............

Catch you later

oh the things I could do.............

Oh the things I could do with this.............sadly I only have enough money for a few days...........but I really could use it for a few weeks..............Never thought I would have empty dams for over 12 months.........so we're getting a bit dug out of this one............
the bit of water you can see in the front is very shallow.......it's one the boys desiled late last year..............
If it ever rains properly again it will holds lots more then now............but would probably still be empty by now............
Catch you later
