Slack blogger......again

Oh dear - it has been over a month since I did a blog post! But life has been good, work is very busy which means I don't accomplish much in my down time LOL
But I have done some sewing unfortunately not all of it has been photographed! I did remember to take a pic of this cute wall hanging I made for Diana for a swap
and I made another one of these tablerunners (same colours) also for Diana

Our little sewing group also went out for lunch  for the end of the year and Laurel brought with her her first finished quilt for her first grandchild due early next year. Very cute colours and with owls!
I had a lovely Christmas at home, just a quiet one with my family and my parents. Craig had to work in the morning but was home just after 2pm so that wasn't too bad. We usually have a traditional Roast Turkey dinner but I made these delicious treats for dessert. 
Berry trifle:

and a Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate Cheesecake:

Very indulgent!!!! - only a veeerrry small slice needed!

After Christmas we went down to Canberra to visit my brother and his family for a few days. It is not often that most of my family is together so it was nice. Tim came with us and my parents were there and my aunty & uncle from the Gold Coast popped in for a night as well.
We had a great time together, eating, drinking coffee, shopping, eating, drinking coffee, shopping, drinking get the idea!!
We also did a bit of sight seeing.....

And now, here it is, the end of another year. 
It is New Years Eve here and I am sitting watching a good partying for me tonight. 
I hope you all have a safe new year and that you all have a fantastic year in 2012!!!
