A Tote Bag and a Pig Cake

My first stitchy finish for 2010, a tote bag. I have another 3 to do with different designs, now the trick will be remembering to take one with me when I head out shopping.

And for my birthday - my Pig Cake :) Made by me.

A 2 headed sunflower and a tattoo

Out of 15 sunflowers that we grew this year only this one had 2 flowers on it, quite unusual. I plan to save the seeds and see if any more grow more than 1 flower.

And Simon, now 19, got his first and probably only tattoo.

2010 has arrived

...and a friend challenged me to
"think back and name 5 things that come to mind of things that you remember" from 2009.
So let me think, maybe I can even come up with a few more Kathy.

We -
continued renovations on the house adding new blinds to the front windows.
started on the road to fighting John's skin cancer, ongoing and another appointment at the end of the month.
survived the trauma of Shane's movement disorder, Shane stopped twitching in August.
celebrated the third anniversary of the kidney transplant
bought a new (to us) car.
watched our youngest son graduate high school - yay! no more school run.
renovated and landscaped our back yard, and planted the new lawn on January 1st, 2010.
and personally I finished a lot of stitchy stuff and actually got my stuff all organised for a fresh approach in 2010.

Happy New Year everyone
