2012..back to work.

Well we had a lovely break at xmas at my  mums place.  We took the puppy,  'chippy'  .She behaved herself and has really grown too.  My mum would love another dog but has been told 'No'  , she still has her dog  'freddie'  he is almost 16 years old and going deaf and blind too.  here is a pic of  freddie sharing his bed with my cheecky dog...she invited herself!   Freddie can't play and she was tugging on his legs to try and get him to play!...poor freddie.

'I can fit in here too!


'move over freddie'
I finished another pretty bauble while i was here.  I  never took any stitching with me although I took my crochet to do and did a few more rows of the 'ripple blanket' . It was really 'muggy' for a few days was actually to hot to do crocheting.  The beading was good to do though.  I must take some more pics of the ripple soon.  I should have that finished well before winter. (i remember saying hat about a blanket last year!)
my 2nd beaded bauble.

Here is a pic of chippy having an afternoon 'snooze' on the couch! (my sisters quilt she made for mum last year)

I ate too much as usual and now i need  to go on ww diet and try to lose about 10 kgs. Weather that happens is another story!  ...not if i keep eating cream puffs!
cream puffs!..mmmm
My son , Conor, let off his fireworks on New Years eve and some other crackers he had put aside , made lots of noise !

The weather here has been really stink too !  Have hardly seen the sun, we have had heaps of rain and our tanks are overflowing which is not the norm fo this time  of year, is usually the other way around.  My back yard is a 'mud' hole and the chooks have eaten everything  green!  lol!  Everything sees to be late this year in the garden.  Hope it dries up soon!
