crocheting and holidays...?

December had me working very busy on the babette. I had a goal to have it all completed (crocheted) before we hit the holidays. And I did get it done! Now I just have all the ends on the reverse side to finish off.

Well, I must say, I did plan to do some crocheting while down south, and I did, but only one sad little hair tie, after a special request, in a hurry to make the airport in time... to make a trip to the otherside of the world.

We were just too busy occupied with:

beach walks

playing games

conquering Yallingup maze

household duties take on a whole different meaning.

trying to catch the last little fish in the bay that keeps getting away

making big kites with Grandad

making smaller kites with cousins

finding out that recycling and dish water are more fun then the toy box

eating treats from the corner deli

viewing the devastation at Prevelly, Margaret River after the recent fires. This was all green shrubbery, reduced to sanddunes. Quite a different outlook.

mastering the ripstick

learning a new game!
And since being home, not much more crocheting has been completed, as holidays are spent doing extra jobs with extra hands, swimming lessons and special outings and entertaining 4 children, so my craft comes last.

Hoping you all had a relaxing holiday season.

Till next time with more crocheting...

2012: a new year

Wishing all our family, friends and readers a happy new year and God's blessings upon your daily walk of life, in whatever He has planned for us.

Sorry the blog has been a little quiet the last few weeks. End of 2011 was rather busy with various things, and we also could remember how we have been blessed with 10 years of marriage. We also have packed up and been camping for two weeks, enjoyed remembering Christ's birth at Christmas, and come home and unpacked again!

I'll get a post together shortly of what crocheting I managed this past month.

Looking forward to a productive year in craft again this year. A special (craft) post is planned, so please stay tuned.

"let your mercy, O LORD, be upon us, just as we hope in you."
Ps 33:22
