How wonderful to be back

I'm back, and it seems like forever that I've been missing from blogworld but first I was a super sickie and then my darling Henry came to stay...a lot can happen in seven days so I've heaps to share.

Of course with Henry staying there is the obligatory Henry picture.
We found this Wiggles car at the local shops and Henry was happy to play for ages...he didn't even want any money put in.  There were no other little kids waiting to have a go and a comfy seat was positioned just next to the red car so I spent a very happy time watching him play.  I think three and a half must be the perfect age...Henry's needs and wants are so simple...his love so honest and true...his laugh so pure and infectious...Oh how I love being a grandma.

The Friends Having Fun presents are now being opened and I can share the first four wonderful parcels from sweet Peg.  I can see I am going to be totally spoilt.

The most amazing Christmas present arrived from lovely Michelle from RagTag Stitchin.

As well as the beautiful little gingerbreadman I was totally spoilt with one of Michelle's amazing original bear drawings.  I am very, very, very lucky.

More about the goodies which have been arriving tomorrow.
I love, you love, we all love Jodie from Ric-Rac...and if you are not familiar with this great Aussie designer you will love her too, once you read her funny blog posts and marvel at her talents.  Jodie has very kindly shared four adorable Christmas decorations with us HERE.
Thank you so much Jodie - you are a star.

Hope you have time for some stitching today
