Ok I'm done !

The tree is up and decorated, my fave and gold!

The pressies are wrapped and under the tree !

I made all my gift tags from last years Christmas cards!

Mr bubba had to get his pressie early cos we need it for over the holidays!

This one was a hundred years old and we just couldn't go on with it any more !

Then because everything seems to be in order, cleaned and ticked off my list (well until I need to get all the last minute foodie things , like Townsville Tigers and Sweetlip) I thought I'd retreat to my studio and get creative.

Yes it is a door stop, I only had enough wheat left in my stash to fill half of it, so I put rice in to fill the rest and lots of Lavender, mmmmm smells divine.

Who knows if I'll get to post again, being so busy and all, So I would really like to wish you all a tuely lovin, happy and peace filled Christmas.

I have virtually met so many wonderful blogettes this year and wish we could share some Christmas cheer together, you know in real life ! I know there is a blogette meetup in Melbourne next year and wish I could go too, maybe we'll have to have another blogette lunch sooner than later !

I finally put something on my "bucket list" too !

I want to go to America with a group of like minded people, people who love craft, patchwork, quilt shows and craft exhibitions, who love buying fabric etc etc, Maybe for two weeks, maybe a tour, any one else have this on their list ?

Good on you Mimmy, finished everything... nice work.. As for America, would love to but don't see it happening in the near future... but it would be a hoot.

Well done for being so darned organized. Always dreamed of the American crafting/quilting holiday but can't see it in my crystal ball in 2010. Keeping options open though. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Love the door stop - I'm sure it smells wonderful. Have a lovely Christmas Miriam - and put me down for the US trip - I'll just have to have a few more great Saturdays at the Handmade Expo first though!
Enjoy your well-earned break catching up with your family while Mr Bubba becomes an expert on the BBQ. Susan

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Just had a week off from the internet and am ready to go with my new lap top. Don't think I will be heading to America this year but it sounds like a super plan. All the best for the New Year.
