The cross stitch is the latest little project I have been working on for a friend. It is a free pattern from here. Now the part I struggle with, how to finish it!! Wendy xx

here. I am linking with Narelle at Pins and Whiskers for the one Christmas item a month. I am enjoying being part of this and it encourages me to use the Christmas patterns and kits I have collected over the years, Wendy xx

I made the hearts on Sunday using the Simply Rouge book from House on the Hill company. My white shelves needed something to hang from the bottom, what do you think? Wendy xx

I really can't say enough about Queenstown and the surrounding area. It's beautiful and cold and magical. It feels so completely different from the North Island: huge mountains all around; barren landscape; icy breeze; clear blue water; and much less people! We noticed the cold as soon as we stepped off the plane, thankfully I had my winter coat! We had such a fantastic time and I particularly loved the smaller towns like Arrowtown and Cromwell. That's not a great photo of the two of us but it is the only one of us together, taken on the gondola on the way up to dinner at the Skyline Restaurant.
On the sewing front, I have been stitching away on my Vignette quilt when I have the chance. I am starting to believe I will finish the two blocks I am working on!! Wendy xx

We bought the cute little vintage dresser second hand and Charlie loves picking flowers for it and loves having her own mirror. All we need now are new curtains and her room will be complete. Just for you Charlie xx.
Twenty years ago today Paul and I married, don't we look young! I feel constantly blessed to have Paul as my husband; he is my best friend, my rock and heaps of fun too. We rarely have holidays away from the kids but we are this time. Early Sunday morning we fly to Queenstown in the South Island for three nights. I have never been before so it will be an exciting, wonderful time. I just need to get through my list of jobs before then, Wendy xx
