Snapshots of Christmas 2014...

A covered diary for Rosie's teacher using some cute Tanya Wheelan fabric.  Did you ever give your teacher an apple?  I'm not sure that I did... but I do remember giving her poems.

I have always loved this design by Jenny (of elefantz), and stitched it for a lovely new Church friend I made this year.  It's something I've not ventured to talk about on my blog, or much anywhere else for that matter... but this year I trusted and gave myself to Jesus for the very first time, it's a relationship that has accelerated rapidly and liberated and healed me through the months that followed.  Just when you think it impossible to fit any more love in to your heart... so it opens and receives in abundance... which means there's more to give!  Yay!!

Decorating with vintage ice skates this year... loved this vignette.  A sweet friend gifted me some child's vintage ice skates too, which I then hung above the adult version... too cute!

I collected the pine cones back in Autumn when I was walking the dog (I got some very strange looks off people!); and then more recently sprayed them with fake snow.  I also sprayed some old plastic tree branches to include in the scene.  The white sprigs in the boot were an op-shop find and I made laces from jute twine.

We had a fun Christmas party earlier on in the month, my friends are a bit shy with sharing photos... but my children are quite happy to - so here's a couple of pics of them, growing up too fast!

Well, a new year dawns for us all in a few hours time... wishing you a fun, relaxing, restful evening - whichever your preference may be!  I'm off to watch a Hobbit movie with Mr SUDs before we quietly see in the New Year together.  With love and blessing to each and every one of you!

Hi Vikki,

I'm happy to hear that you have found healing, peace & love! :o) I absolutely adore the ice skate display. It's lovely to see you children. You're son seems goofy and it makes me smile. We went to see the Hobbit on New Year's Eve too!! Always thinking of you and sending hugs across the planet...

Happy New Year!
