Mid January already!

Where on earth has the last month gone??? Well, Christmas came and went, as did the New Year. Sadly a couple of SW's family members decided to leave the planet within two days of each other. Very sad. But they are in a happier place now :) We had a fairly quiet time of it all though. Summer has been strange for us in Australia this year, extreme rain and flooding in many parts of the country - and for SA very strange cold to hot days next to each other!

Anyway, on a happier I had the pleasure of handing over a 1st prize that was won in a raffle that I had sold tickets in!!! The lucky recipient was very happy with her winnings!! Congratulations Ella!This raffle was to raise money for a program called "Encore" which is run by the YWCA and is for women who have experienced breast cancer. The quilt was made and donated to the cause by some wonderful women in the Salisbury Stitchers Group - so thank you from me ladies!!

The other nice thing that I was stoked about was my Ginger Plant flowered!!! woohoo!!! I am not a green thumbed person so this was a great achievement to see the flower - so of course have to show it off here!!!
