So much to show you

 I'm back again with a few more presents to share with you,  I received this beautiful stitched table cloth from my mum, hasn't she done an amazing job. All that stitchery would have drove me mad but mum stuck with it and its so lovely.
 Here is a close up of the middle, thanks Mum I love it.

 I have been a very good girl this year and santa gave me this awesome camera. I have always had just a little compact camera but I wanted to update to something bigger and better. I still don't know how most of it works but I have taken a few snapshots. The boys are sick of me already telling them to smile so when they see me with the camera they run and hide. Cheeky buggars.
 I took this photo in our garden and see how the flower is perfectly clear but the back ground is  blurry. I have always wanted to do that and now I can. I don't even know how I did that this time but lets hope I work it out. I have watched a few tutorials on you tube and they are really good. Its like being in the camera shop and someone telling you all about it.
 My moth in law is the best ever. She know how much I LOVE Cath Kidston and look what she sent me, A beautiful bag.
 A gorgeous toiletry bag full of little goodies every girl needs.
 And a Cath Kidston preserve kit. thankyou Dawn, I love you heaps.
The best gift of all would have to be from my youngest son , he made the most beautiful ornaments at school for each of us. He did such a good job.

I'm having a day at home today so I reckon I'll be sewing, how about you?? What are your plans for the day. I hope its a good one.
