Merry Christmas to you all

Isn't it so true how you give presents you would like to recieve yourself. The first cushion I made for Mr Flowergarden's Grandmother made it's way to my loungeroom and has comfortably moved in and won't be leaving. I have produced another one, more suited to a 90 year old, and when I put in on our family room couch, I just laughed to myself, as it looked so good. Mr Flowergarden said "you can't keep it!" I was pleased with how it turned out, as it was an old piece of tapestry that I rescued from the Art Room at school made with curtain samples. I just hope my mother-in-law won't be too judgemental.

I am a bit nutty about this crotcheting business. I will have to get a new TV/Car craft
I am now experimenting with a smaller version - my friend is going to use it for her daughters hair things.


Some lovely rain today again and some time inbetween for some weeding and spreading of more pea straw. Even snuck a few little plants in the damp ground.I hope you all have a lovely Christmas Day whatever you may be doing. Thanks for sharing time in my Flowergarden...

Thanks for visiting my blog. I read various Australian blogs and I still can't get my head around Christmas being in the summer - though it's very nice to see pictures of flowers when here in Scotland it's rather cold and flowerless - but anyway, have a lovely one!

Dear Annie,
I cannot think of someone I would rather take this crazy bloggy journey with - you inspire me every single day.
I cannot wait to see what 2008 brings to our blogs, our friends and our crafts. We are lucky lucky women !!!
