Monday, November 21


on my lounge is my little girl who came home early.  She feels fine now, a nice little rest made her feel better.
on my desk is some test stitching using my machine. I thought I might stitch on the marble bags using the machine instead of hand sewing.
on my kitchen bench is some freshly baked banana bread with lemon icing.

on my fridge is my menu for the week and lots of pretty artwork.
on my dining table is some mini bunting cut up for my older girl to make her Christmas cards for school, Friday is her last day.

Did you have a good day?

This week my blog is being featured over at the at the Decorating Forum.  Thank you Julie-Ann for having me.  You can see my feature this week here along with other Australian blogs.
