As you may have read previously, our daughter was born on Christmas Day and celebrated her 8th Birthday this year. No one is ever able to manage Birthday cake on Christmas Day so this year I attempted a gingerbread cookie Christmas tree (thanks to a Lakeland template kit!) with the children breaking off a star as when they were hungry - a success!
Secondly, this is my finished picture for my Mum for Christmas. "Blue bells and Morning Glory" - felt embellished with ribbon and stitching, unfortunately the light is not great but I was really pleased with the final piece.
All which it leaves me to do now is wish you a Happy and Safe New Year - I think 2011 will see my life taking a different direction - more to follow in due course.
You may well be thinking where does the name "BLINGABLONGA" come from? Well, apart from being a fun thing to say, it is the name my daughter gave her imaginary friend when she was four years old!! Apart from my lovely daughter,I also have a lovely husband and son, two guinea pigs (Hannah Montana and Milkshake), a Hamster (Honey), indoor and outdoor fish - quite enough to fit in with our busy lives !
This is my first attempt at blogging so any ideas or comments will be greatly received!
