for some months now louise has been busy stitching a gift for the parents of the bridegroom. her daughter jane is being married in India at the end of December. we wish them all a very happy time. click on the pictures for a larger image.
you may think this is a funny subject to bring up on a stitching blog, but is something we all do, and while we were in hobart last weekend we had more than just a 'few' treats!!!!!!! on sunday we had a family gathering and my cousin Barb made some cakes, and on monday night we had dinner with my dear friend Deb and her family. everything was delicious and the company good also, thankyou!

i will be back at the end of the month with more love!
always remember to slow down in life;
live, breathe and learn;
take a look around you
whenever you have time
and never forget
everything and every person
that has a place within
twelve things to remember
the value of time
the success of perserverance
the pleasure of working
the dignity of simplicity
the worth of character
the power of kindness
the influence of example
the obligation of duty
the wisdom of economy
the virtue of patience
the joy of originality
the beauty of cheeriness

use the talents you possess,
for the woods would be a very silent place
if no birds sang except the best.
we can do no great things,
only small things with great love.
