Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone a wonderful 2011.
All my plans to finish a few quilts before Christmas fell by the wayside. December was hectic, moving my son to Cape Town.  The rain hasn't let up and we have floods in most parts of SA. All our dams are full. Driving to Cape Town in heavy rain and thick mist was nerve wracking, we saw a horrific accident.

I love the Garden Route, the scenery is simply stunning!  Famous holiday hot spots are along this route. Noted for the best beach parties and excellent surfing conditions, its always crowded.

Wonderful 3 weeks in Cape Town, perfect sunny weather.Today however, everything is back to normal. My husband  is back at work, my gardener is back from holiday and has a lot of gardening to keep him busy.  After all the rain we have had, the garden looks like a jungle, so overgrown.

Here are some things I made in November;

 Inspired by Blossom's design at Among the Gum Trees 

 Using my scraps, I made a few mug rugs
