It has been a long time since I added to this blog. There was a change of procedure and I couldn't work out a new way of doing things like putting up photos, and I didn't know why the change had to happen. now, though I hope I can manage to do things that I used to do.

On our Craft forum, we recently had a Kitchen swap. I made this plastic bag holder for my swapee in USA
The green part, top and bottom had gum leaves and the body had Australian birds and some native flowers, mostly gum blossom. I'm very happy to report that she loved this gift.

Now for retraining my fingers to make music and not just noise, because of working full time being so busy has prevented me from keeping up my practice. When I first began High School, my parents arranged that I take piano lessons. There was an ulterior motive because within 18 months I was playing for the hymns at church. Decades later I bought a small organ and traded up twice to this model. Again I took lessons and was able to play well enough that people did not leave the room.

I received a parcel today, all the way from America. A clearance sale catalogue, a tourist map of New Hampshire, USA (if only I could go) and a pattern for oven-gloves. Also in the parcel was a piece of Insul-ating fabric. I just love relaxing with a catalogue and a coffee. I read in someone's blog that you cannot underestimate the importance of being fully caffinated. I do my best for thee coffee farmers everywhere.
