back on deck

I'm is now working again..although I lost my hard drive and it had to be replaced...(lost all my photos over the last 12months too)....yes I know....should have been backing up! I just have to set it up again! ....Or find a friend to help me! (look out Wendy!)

A squishy parcel arrived in the post this week from...somewhere oversees. (Where is Norge?)'s my Secret Santa Christmas Swap...and it looks very exciting!

Of course I opened the little parcel straight away and was delighted to find a beautiful heart to hang on my tree.

I hope there is a card in the parcel as it is still a mystery to me as to who it is from.
So thank you to my secret Santa friend. I'm very excited about my pressie.

The present I made went to Nicky in NZ and I had a lovely email from her to say it had arrived.

My baby dog Bella turned 18 today ( that's 126 in dog years). (I've had her at home longer than the kids!) We had a little party with her doggie friends and one rabbit...A fun time was had by all..but all the rabbit wanted to do was eat his hat! Makes a change from all the power cords he's been chomping through lately!

Bella and Alice in 1994..'can we keep her?'

Party girl..Bella, the wonder dog...It's a wonder she's still alive!

Ollie, the ever hungry rabbit....

It's my birthday!

Party food....yum

Darby, Bella, Minty and Ollie

I don't seem to be doing any stitching much for my moto..... 'a stitch a day stops my whole life from unravelling!'
Hopefully I can report on some handy work next time.
Till then
