Now to reveal all ..

OK ladies ... you have gotten your message through loud and clear .... and I am sorry for keeping you in suspense ..... I shall post a full photo of the bits that I sent my partner ... who was Lisa from Lisa's Stitching Lounge

if you pop over to her blog you will see the photo she posted, which is much better than these .... seems she loves the candle mat .... I really did enjoy making these for her ..... scrappy is something I am getting a real feel for .. 


the candle mat ... and on the little scolloped edge of the heart there are tiny beads at each point ... helped to make it look 'finished'


a simple little mug rug .. 


Everything thrown into one pic ... not too clear I'm afraid 


and here is a more recent photo of Harrison .... loves his food ... 


oh ... and I must share .. our little great granddaughter Carleigh Jean was born a on the 10th February .... she is just gorgeous ... I am still to meet her .. next weekend I think they are coming for a visit  .. such a happy Grandma ... 

introducing ... Miss Carleigh Jean .. AKA Daddy's Princess ..


life is really great ...... loving these babies ..... 

oh .. I will have her quilt finished soon too ..... 

busy  busy busy ... haha
