I'm Back

Well here I am back home after the best holiday ever cruising around New Zealand.
For someone who had previously hated sea travel I now love it.
Maybe it was the company-definitely the food(don't ask how much weight I gained)-most certainly the luxury-and more importanly the scenery-no not the ocean but the beautiful country of New Zealand.
I know I can hear all you Kiwi's saying "I told you so" but to see it with my own eyes was just breathtaking.
I will show you some photo's later when I get them sorted out.
Catching up on some of the Fibre Fever pages now.
The first one was for Hanna whose theme is leaves.
Hanna never received this page and after about 4 week I realised that I had put the wrong address on the envelope-but we have been told that it on it's way back to me.

So here is the replacement one that I sent to her which has been received.
This had to be a rush job because it was sent 2 days before I left on holidays.

This is the November page that I received from Janny and to fit into my theme of " where you come" from she has added a pair of Dutch clogs and some tulips.
I love it.

My November page was for Evi who's theme is "The Little Prince".
Before this swap I had never heard of the little prince so I googled it and found out all the details.
If you want to find out more click here.
The darker blobs are really gold foil but they don't show up very well here.

Now I am off to finish my Christmas cards.

glad you had such a wonderful time, I love New Zealand, so much beauty there.
Canberra seemed to have nothing but rain while you were away.

Sounds like you had a wonderful time. I can't wait to see photos.

I gave up (again!) on making Christmas cards. Maybe if I started in July I might get them finished.

Lovely to have you home again! Let me know when you start planning your next trip over!

Doreen, I am glad you like it. How about the Dutch farmers handkerchief?
Is there anything you can do with it?
And do you like it?
Regards, Janny

Glad you had such a lovely time. The pages are beautiful and it is good to know that the first one that you sent to Hanna has not disappeared for ever. The Little Prince is my all-time favourite book, you made a great page from it.
