I am so proud. My daughter has learned how to use a sewing machine. Here she is sewing away, totally oblivious to the fact that I have taken this photo. She had a day at my patchwork group, Quilt Time, sewing angel outfits and a rag doll each for her two girls. She is now making them Christmas stockings and draft excluders!

I have just finished my 2010 Christmas Journal and am taking photos and writing journalling for 2010, but do not think it will actually get finished until the new year, as at the moment there are so many other things to do.

This page shows me returning from the shops with a sledge full of shopping, and Emily and I sucking icicles in the garden. Actually it has been good that it has taken so long to finish the journal, as as I have been putting it together I have been able to relive the memories I have recorded. I think every Christmas I should get out all my Christmas Journals and re-read them.
