Back On Track.

Posted on | August 8, 2017 | 7 Comments

Hello August!

The McKenna Ryan blocks for Aussie Christmas are steadily growing. They are very time consuming but well worth the effort.

The ornaments need to have hanging ribbons added, but I need to find ones that I like. That part can easily wait as I know the rest of the blocks will not be finished overnight.

I have had an enforced break from blogging this last month due to some serious family illness. It is lovely to be back to normal and catching up with posts again.

I did manage to add to my Christmas felt decorations, this time with owls.

I am amazed at how many felt decorations I have made over the years to give away, but never kept any for myself.  It is an interesting process working through the list and making the patterns again.

We have  a busy time ahead with five family birthdays in eight days. Keeps you on your toes.

Have a great week.

Cheers, Karen
