HAPPY NEW YEAR & HAPPY BIRTHDAY

I have had a lovely day today although the weather was very hot: 39 degrees and a hot northerly wind.

I spoke to Linda http://billabongs2bling.blogspot.com  
and she reassured me that they are safely high above the flood waters.  

Our neighbour kindly took a load of rubbish to the transfer station (tip) for us.  It means a lot as we are unable to do it ourselves.


I was able to do some sewing so I made this bag for my youngest grandson.  He turned 8 today.

It features eary model Holden cars and maps of Australia.  Inside I have put some pens and pencils and a book I made for him.  The book contains sheets of pictures for him to colour in.  He is mad on Scooby Doo so I printed the sheets off the internet.
I do hope he likes it.  It was fun to make and I had the fabric & the zip in my stash.  We will visit him tomorrow for cake & candles.


Altogether a lovely day.


HAPPY NEW YEAR AND THANKS FOR ALL THE GREAT COMMENTS AND ENCOURAGEMENT THROUGHOUT THE PAST MONTHS.

Hello again Dianne. Thank you so much for your concern. Water still rising, be we're still fine. Others not so lucky. I love the fabric in the bag, so cool. I'm sure your grandson will have heaps of fun with the drawings. Have a lovely day with him tomorrow, and my love and best wishes to you and all your family for a healthy, happy and safe 2011. Here's to all of us!!!
