Catching Up and some sad news ........

Sadly our little man that I chatted about HERE - Lost his battle on Wednesday of last week. It really rocked our family as he had touched all of us with his sweet little heart. We named him "Buddy" as suggested by Robin. It really suited him and he did become my little bed buddy. He is now resting in our garden. Robin please drop me an e-mail and I will post something off to you - Thanks so much for the lovely name and thanks to everyone for all of the suggestions.



I have kept myself busy working through my gift list. This week has seen many projects started and a few finished. This little bag is for "Emma" who is my best friends grand daughter. She has 4 other grandchildren and I have items chosen to make for each of them.
And this is the bag that I have made for my friend. She adores bunny rabbits and travels around Australia as a judge at rabbit shows. I thought she might like to have a nice tote bag to take with her on these trips.

Burp cloths for a brand new baby boy and an expectant baby girl.



Guess who I baby sat today? Yes sweet little Maddie. Now I am pretty sure that she doesn't get her love of chocolate from me - LOL....... I had to bathe her after this episode and soak her clothes. But we had lots of fun as she is crawling now and finds the christmas tree very interesting......



I received my SSCS swap parcel from the lovely Sherry. This is the sweet little christmas stocking she made for me to hang on my tree.



I am off now to have this delicious Chicken Caesar Salad that I have made for dinner.
Until next time,
HUGS,
