AND one for NEAL and one for ME too!

After making the deer stockings on the embroidery, it
got me thinking that I could remove the deer in Perla and
add a robot  for Neal and Me

Something to put a little gift in

I am really keeping myself busy of late. So many things to 
learn as well which has really been keeping my head busy as 
well .
The week before Christmas I was talking on line to Helene
and she was showing me the Christmas stockings she had 
been making on her "BIG" embroidery machine and she 
was telling me on my machine they would make cute size 
stocking so I went to the website and brought the pattern.
I chose the one that had a deer on it 
I was able to use Perla premium to add the names .
and here is what i made for my friends

(used the wrong stabilizer on the middle one )

SCARY start to the week

I love living in my new part of Australia , but
things get scary when we spend 9 hours looking at this out our
front door (and worst just after this photo when the fire reached 
a old wreaking car yard). Scary, but it was great that all the 
firefighters did a fantastic job of getting the fire undercontrol 
and we could get a sleep last night . The bush fire burnt out 
170 hectors and this morning they are just cleaning up and 
making sure all is staying safe.

It's not like me

Wow  there is now less than a week to 
go till Christmas and I have only just 
finished and posted my Christmas cards .
Every year I am getting them ready at the 
last week of November and thinking that 
I am leaving that late BUT this year I thinkI did 
leave them VERY VERY late.
Will  show you a photo soon when most people 
start receiving them .

he too wanted to get them to the post office

Get Well Soon

The group I belong too over here also go 
all around the state to "Open day events"
and we get to know spinners and weavers 
from all other groups . 
One of the guys from the Ulverstone spinning and 
weaving group, we found out was not feeling the 
best and I was asked to make him a card.
I had to think what would i put on the card , then
I got photos from Jaddy of our Open day at our club 
and there was a photo in there of Dean, and he was 
in his kilt so then i thought OH OH this would 
make him laugh . So this is the card that I came up 
with .

Some embroidered presents

As well as the webinars and weaving and Spinning 
I have been still learning the designing part of the 
embroidery machine and also making presents for people and 
events .
Having seen  a store brought bag that one of the ladies at 
spinning had that had been altered, Jaddy said how great it 
was and would love something like that .
So that got me thinking that I had wanted to try digitizing a 
sheep and this would be a great reason . So out came my 
program and books and dvds and I set to learning more .
this is the bag I made Jaddy (with her name on it too)

Made these for Louise that is teaching us to 
weave (she loves butterflies and the colour pink)

Then we  just had out christmas lunch for the 
spinning group i go to and this is the Kris Kringle (secret santa)

with a necklace to go with it that i made

 And a hand towel
 A sweet little set
Then as a extra secret santa  for a very special lady
(This one I made the bag as well the other was a store 
brought bag that i added the pocket onto )

 So as you can see I have been keeping busy .

What and Where have I been up too?

It has been a big busy year for me this year .
And I have had people emailing me or messaging me 
to ask me if i am OK as my blog has been neglected .
I am fine and good. I have taken the last year to 
learn new things (craft wise) and to see lots more
of the new state I live in (Tasmania) .
Still been doing the Make the cut Webinars  
(you will find these lessons in this past years 

And  a frame in box too 

I have also been learning to weave on shaft loom this year which 
has been soo much fun  and continuing to spin yarn on the 
spinning wheel .

I am also a WEAVER now

I have been learning lots of new things since 
moving from Victoria to Tasmania (Australia).
Thinking my life was going to be quiet here HEHEHEHE.
With 12 months ago I brought myself my first spinning wheel
and joining group here to learn how to use it . And from this I 
have also been having Weaving lessons to learn the art of 
Our lessons are with one of our group 
Louise she is a wonderful teacher and there for any help we
need. Here is my first lesson with the 4 shaft  loom
(borrowed a loom for this one ) It was learning the basic twill

 Also with the borrowed loom I did my second lesson 
which has 80 different patterns on the one sampler

Now I am sooo hooked on weaving I now have 
a 4 shaft loom of my own working on my next lesson
Here is my newest toy in the house .
This one is a big project and still  working on it .

Now as a note I am still doing other crafts including
paper crafts , sewing ,ect.... It is just soo much fun to 
learn more things.
