Let's Celebrate and Renovations

I received another lovely parcel yesterday from my swap partner, Noela.  Noela and I are very much on the same wavelength when it comes to gifts which is working out really well as far as I'm concerned.  I received a gorgeous mugmat with the initial K embroidered on it, and my recipes were placed into a lovely journal which Noela had made a cover for.  My first ever journal cover....love it.  There is also a lovely pattern for some little embroidered pretties for the kitchen, some lovely choccy bikkies and a selection on coffees and teas.  I have enough here to throw a fabulous morning tea sometime.   thankyou Noela so much.





But the morning tea is going to have to wait a while...our house is undergoing some seriously big renovations and our front and back yards look like a war zone.   This is a photo of the house trussed up like a Christmas turkey with the scaffolding needed to do the new roof and outer walls.
