Weekly Hodge Podge

Hello everyone out there in blogger land. Although I haven't been able to find the time to post this past week I've been checking my regular blogs daily. I need my daily fix of blogging buddies.

Let's see, what have I been up to this past week. Last Thursday evening my friend Winnie and I hit the highway en route to Moncton, New Brunswick (a five hour drive). I visited with my daughter and Winnie with hers. I had a fabulous visit - Christmas shopping, good eats in restaurants (except for that fish chowder, right Win), Christmas decorations went up and meeting people for the first time.

The only picture I took the entire weekend was this one - the king of the house ''Puss''.

Winnie gave me this cute snowperson... for no reason, just because.

Then my daughter gave me my birthday gift - Andrea Bocelli's latest CD. Look at him, how gorgeous is that face and his voice is even more beautiful. Merci beaucoup Gi !

Now the two following pictures could be a new fade for me. I don't quite now how to take it yet, this new interest that I've taken to...

... yes, I am going to try my luck at sewing (there, I said it... the S word). You may or may not know that I've hated anything to do with sewing for as long as I can remember. But this blogger thing has gotten to me. Viewing and reading all the nice sewing projects that my favorite bloggers posts - I got the bug. I can't post on what my project will be... it's a surprise for someone. My goodness, what have I gotten myself into !!!!! The sewing machine is not mine. It belongs to my daughter Ginette. She's had it since she was 10 years old. It's amazing the stuff she made at such a young age.

A very simple and easy craft project I snapped up last evening.

Hopefully this amaryllis will be in bloom for Christmas !

Oh I love the NOEL, what a great decoration! I can't wait to see your finished sewing project. I know, looking at all those projects out there in blogger land makes a person want to be crafty too doesn't it?! hee hee

Thanks for the comment. Seems that every evening I see a new favorite crafty idea on blogger that I would like to try making.
