This is Ken's daughter, Lisa with hubby Jim and the girls just after decorating the tree. I don't know what I use, I just put things together and if it looks okay, I'll do it. This is a lovely photo of Jocie and Dacia. I did paint small angel wings to put on this LO but as usual, I have put them in a safe place.

This one is my favourite. I felt very clever after doing this. Reminds me of Jodi's work but no where near as good. Did I do okay Jod? Have to get into scrapping again. I really enjoyed doing these. I have photos of the pistol club but flowers wouldn't be appropriate. I'll have to find some guns or something like that


this is the Gunnedah Pistol Club's presentation night. from left, Wayne, Ken and me. I presented the trophies and was quite honoured to do so. I received a trophy as well. Yippee. This little bloke was at the club a couple of weeks ago. Isn't he gorgeous? His mate, (male) fell out of the tree when the branch broke. They were fighting. Luckily, the wild life park owner was there. He took the sick one back with him but sadly the koala died. I was about 3 feet away from this one.
This is a layout I did of Ken's new granddaughter, dacia. The pink cardigan really stands out on the black and white background. I knitted the cardigan.
I do have some more but god knows what I did with them. Thought I uploaded them but.....I'll have to do them again. I don't know what materials I use, just what Jodi giives me and try to copy hher layouts. ha, ha, ha.

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas, a safe one, a great new year and 'see' you all in 2010.

Hi all, here is my finished project. I think they are beautiful even if I say so myself. All ready for next year's show here in Gunnedah.
This is a photo I took of the moon the other night. I'm trying to pratice my TAFE skills. This was taken without a flash at my back door. I helped Jodi today decorate the Year 12 Formal. Jod always does a great job and I was more helpful this time. I didn't make one mistake!! Very proud of myself. Okay, that's it until I see you agagin. Don't know what I'll do next. (must have pressed a wrong button or something) :) I do have some baby knitting to finalise. Have to do that.

Hi all, this is the little doll I was talking about not so long ago. Here she is ready to be dressed. Ken named her, Eliza because she is dressed in period clothes. Not much to look at is she? Here is a close up of her hat and curls. I honestly didn't think she would come up so sweet.

Here is the finished doll with carol book and all. There was a fair amount of work in her but I do enjoy creating them. I'll start on her brother, Jacob, next. He is also sweet.
Well, that's it for now folks. Ken and I are making plans to go caravaning next week for a couple of days to test things out. The Warranbungles, can't spell it. Joe our dog has to be put in a boarding kennel as no dogs allowed. It will be an experience for us. Cheers to all. x

A day on the Range

This is a table decoration I made for an engagement party last week. Jodi took Emelia to the Jambaree (?), so I took over the job. There were ten of these for centre pieces and one big bunch for the cake table. Jod was pleased with my work. Now, I have put two of these on but what can you expect from a demented biddy. I meant to put another photo on but the heck, hey. The bloke who used this target put three .22 shots into the one hole. Not bad shooting. Won't happen again for a while.

It's worth seeing again don't ya reckon?

Here they all are admiring the work plus scoring. They are all a good bunch of blokes.
Had our AGM yesterday and I was nominated to be scorer. Ha, ha, now I'll have big scores. lol. Only joking. I will be getting at least one trophy at presentation night. There isn't a Veteran Ladies section so I have to shoot against women half my age or more. Not to worry, I'm there to enjoy myself and be with Ken.

Can't start at the top. Damn. This is the little soldier in Santa's sack. Jodi loved him when she saw it.
Here is Santa with his sack of toys. I'm going to put some candy canes in it as well. Knitting these toys is really my first love. To see the little characters come to "life"
I knit dolls from 3inches to 24 inches high.
Now this is "Flossy". I made her fr0m scratch. The actual doll and her clothes plus her hair. She has a pony tail. The hair is sewn on strand by strand. She does have black shoes on but they are hard to see and also they are supposed to have laces. I'll do that later. I'm doing this for next year's Gunnedah show. I have another knitting project to do and it is beautiful. A little girl and boy singing christmas carols. It will take me about a month to complete but I'll have them up as soon as finished. I also have some baby knitting I have done for the show. The CWA ladies here, were shocked to see an outsider win the prizes last year.
This rose is my favourite, Oklahoma. The petals are so rich and the perfume is beautiful. These are what I want on my coffin when the time comes with a touch of baby breath through them. This bush is at my back window. Don't worry Jod if you can't get them, I won't know will I? :)
Thanks to the ladies who wrote on my blog. I didn't expect it.
