End of term...

has come around again! Seems to happen quicker and quicker as the years go by. This last term I decided to learn to decorate a cake - at the Thursday craft group that is! Even though I had to work for a couple of the days and missed out on the lessons, I managed with the help of our wonderful teacher Beth, to complete my cake for Christmas!!!! Every one did a splendid job and I was extremely happy with my finished product, so thank you Beth :)
All the completed cakes....
My cake - like me, plain and simple!! LOLEnd of term also saw the completion of two wall hanging quilts that I had been asked to co-ordinate for the Craigmore Christian School. It was their 30th Birthday in October of this year, so we were a little late in completion (for various reasons). The hangings were handed over to the Head Mistress - breath was taken - and then we could breathe! as they turned out wonderfully. The blocks were worked by the ladies of the Thursday Craft Group, the Creche children and some of the pupils, classes, students and ex-students from the school. I must say that I was thrilled with the hangings and was proud to hand them over.
The theme was ' What does this group, school or area mean to you?'
This weekend saw SW and I take some time off from 'normal' life - and spent some time doing almost nothing at all!!!!!!! Except eat, drink and be lazy!!!! It was SW brothers 50th Birthday and we all headed up the river for a couple of days (Murray River that is). We had a beautiful house to stay in, lots of good food to eat and lots of laughs and chats. So THANK YOU!! Michael and Denise for a great time.

The house....
The birthday boy and cake...Some of the breakfasters.....Some of the local wildlife...One of the toys that we played with.....which I got tossed off and into the very cold water!So now we are back home relaxing and looking forward to another busy week!
