Op Shop Bargains!

Yesterday morning I went to the library and for coffee with a friend. On our way home we visited the local op-(thrift) shop. I found these two bargains, my youngest daughter has been wanting an old style hand beater/mixer for ages and I thought that the apron was too good to pass up. All the work that has gone into the apron and for only 50c! I'm sure she will be pleased with the new additions for her kitchen.

All Finished

All my handmade Christmas gifts are finally finished. The bag is for our oldest daughter and the pink cushion is for the youngest.

The cushion is to match the quilt top that I made when we went to Phillip Island. I hope to get the top finished sometime in the New Year but I'm not making any promises, lol.

Christmas Gifts

Yesterday I made these two cushions for middle daughter as part of her Christmas gifts.

I have one more cushion to make for our youngest daughter and then I'm all finished.

Still need to wrap everything and find a Christmas tree.

Such a relief to have all the shopping/gift making finished.

A Recent Visitor

This male King Parrot was a recent visitor to our backyard. He seemed to be very tame, inquisitive. and posed for photos without any problems. He was approx a metre from me when I took these pics.

I did think that he had come to feast on our fig tree but he seemed much more interested in what we were doing to the hydroponic garden experiment.

Mail - Coming and Going

I was lucky enough to win this shopping bag in a give-away from Jan at Jan's Musing it folds up nicely and fits into it's own pocket for easy storage. I do like the label which reads "Hey Fantastic Look No Plastic." Thanks very much Jan.

...and now some ATC's that will be going out in the mail before the end of the month.

The birthday postcard has already been sent and received.
