Bye 2006

Well, I have been busy these past few days trying to finish off those projects which have been hanging around a wee bit long. I have had limited success!

The pair of sox for BF can't be finished because I can't find the pattern - I will rectify this soon. The jacket wrap is almost finished, just a little of both sleeves to do and then make up. Since I began in May, I have made 3 scarfs (one for ISE), a tea cosy, a beanie (stocking cap or hat), a jumper and one sock! Not too bad, but I have heaps more things in mind for the new year.

Speaking of the new year, I have signed up for *Bejewelled* and my pattern arrived in my inbox yesterday. This starts on 1 Jan, and I have been good enough not to purchase new yarn, but to use some I purchased from the back room of the store at the Bendigo Mills. It's a mint green color and feels really nice and soft!

I don't have much planned for NYE. It should be a quiet one with a few friends, and I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate. I personally am looking forward to 2007, as 2006 hasn't been the best of years for me. But as always, I am looking on the brighter side and have already decided that 2007 will be better.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

We had a terriffic day today. First we spent the day with family, eating lovely food and sharing presents. It was a cold Christmas day here, just perfect for the roast mum prepared. We even had snow on our hills!

I am happy to report that everyone was well pleased with the presents they received, and there were some great surprises among them.

After an extended lunch, we headed home to walk our favourite dogs, Toby and Elvis. It was cool and not many people were out, so we had a ball (so did the dogs!).

Anyway, if everyone else's day was half as great as mine, then we are all very, very happy people.

Best wishes for 2007.
