Happy New Year!

I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy new year and hope that 2010 brings you health, peace and happiness.As a family we have so much to be thankful for over the past year when we reflect back, but we also realise that nothing is guaranteed! May we be grateful for each new day and be thankful for the privilege of seeing another new year!

I got me a new house! I must warn you now, there are a few things I love; saltbox houses, willow trees and the colour barn red; so you will see plenty of those through time!

The following few photos are of some projects I am currently working on. The quilt is a BOM folk art pattern which I need to back and quilt yet.The twelve houses each have a relevant verse stitched on. Maybe not particularly prim but I love it all the same-after all there are saltbox houses!

Thought I would try my hand at a penny rug/mat. I have seen so many lovely ones on many of your blogs-don't look too close as this is a first attempt! (Notice it is red again):0

This little cross stitch I got in USA last year whilst on hols-they have such great choice in all lines of crafts!

These projects are hopefully what will keep me occupied over the next few weeks as I recover from surgery DV. I will probably not be posting but intend to keep up with reading your blogs so keep blogging!

Blessings, Shazy x

Christmas Visitor!

Hope you had a great Christmas-it's kind of sad to think it's all over! We had a little visitor on Christmas morn; he seemed a tad confused as to his identity! I think he thought he was Prancer?

He even came in to see if Santa was still about!

Just a few pics of the dining room. My daughter made the little santa placecards with her new printer-the graphics were from Magnolia Station Primitive Graphics.

Thought I would finish with a few mouthwatering desserts! Sorry,no pics of the turkey-he didn't have enough calories!
Have a good day,

Merry Christmas!

Hi, just a quick post,or should I say, short post, as I am still slow at this. :)
Wishing you and yours a very merry Christmas. I have downloaded a few pictures. The wallhanging I made was adapted from a pattern from the emlibrary. Amidst all the hustle and bustle of Christmas it helps me to remember the real meaning of Christmas. Just to think that God sent His Son into the world to bring peace to our lives and homes.

The pattern for this pillow is by Jenny Hoffman-Country Rustic Primitives

The raggedy tree was a tutorial from Preferably Prim and Christine also very kindly made me the little penny mat-I love the colours!

Have a peaceful Christmas

New to blogland and pics of Christmas decor

Hello, I'm new to this blogging, in fact I have only recently been introduced to blogland which much to my family's disgust, has turned into an obsession!lol! I shouldn't be starting now, so close to Christmas, considering I have so much to do-I certainly didn't think it would take this long to get it set up (I still haven't it right!).
I love all your prim decor and although our home is probably more country, my new love is prim! :)
Here are a few pics, please excuse the quality and colour of some as this is all new to me!

Thanks for taking time to share with me, more pics to follow! (If I can master the downloading quicker!lol!)
Wishing you all a blessed Christmas
