Only two more open weekends before Christmas……we’re calm and relaxed about Christmas here at the farm this year.
Our Christmas display and shop is open for two more weekends and then its Christmas!
WHEN: Saturday and Sunday 10th and 11thDec THEN 17thand 18th Dec
10am-4pm each day.
Happy spring! Great news……This year’s crop of new decorations / wreaths / garlands have arrived and we’re almost ready for our open weekends- but first things first……here’s dates we’re open this year…….
26th and 27th November, then each weekend in December up until 23rd December (sorry we’re not open Christmas eve or Christmas day- there’s family stuff going on).
I’d forgotten how relaxing embroidery can be……. And, I think I’ve found the perfect embroidery hoop!
I just realised it’s been over 3 months since I last wrote to you- We can’t have that! A lot has been going on with work and stuff, blah blah blah, but let’s quickly move on!
Something has just happened that I need to tell you about…..
I realised this week that there are some things that I wish I’d known years ago…… No- this isn’t one of those wise, self-improving, self-reflecting blogs- Seriously folks, this is FAR more life changing!
Thank goodness it’s raining today, the idea that became a PROJECT……and HE gets a bit crafty. “Introducing Project Hexagon- NZ”
Hello and Happy Thursday,
Agggah- Another week has disappeared without a trace- seriously, I have NO CLUE where time goes. I blame it on the chocolate coma I’ve been in since Easter!!! Hopefully you had a good time and managed to get some chocolate, or hot cross buns, or plenty of the stuff that makes you happy!
Hello again Friends
Forgive my recent hiatus, firstly- I thought you deserved a break after getting so much from me before Christmas- and secondly we’ve been really busy creating 15 new kit designs!!!!
Yep - Christmas is here and what got done, got done, and what didn’t …… didn’t! Of course, its nuts….. we knew it would be - and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
It’s Christmas Eve! …. I’ve actually got time for a few last minute thoughts, since I’m pleased to report, I followed my own advice and wrapped my gifts early!…. I promise to keep this short, ‘cos there’s celebrating to do!
Dear Creative Friends…..
I’ve had this HUGE bottle of bleach in the back of my laundry cupboard for ages-And yes, I DO know bleach has real life uses like cleaning grout and stuff, but it was taking up precious space and I couldn’t help wondering if I could use it for something crafty…….
Recently I’ve been sharing some Christmas tips over at http://www.kiwifamilies.co.nz/blogs/ and I wanted to share them here with you too.
Since the great folk at Kiwi Families don’t know my husband (but so many of you do), I just listed the interesting advice he has for budding tree decorators. But here’s what really happened….
You’re due a Christmas project right? After all, there’s still a smidge of time left to (possibly) get stuff made before the BIG DAY! ….That’s if we keep it simple.….. And if we get started now…….
But first a project to savour…..All this started thanks to a treat that came in the post over the weekend…… NZ designer Cherry Parker has just published a fabulous new book called “CROSS STITCH BALL- New Zealand Flowers”
This post is slightly philosophical and contains some recent deep thinking (perhaps too much!) but sometimes it’s good to get these things out.
Speaking of getting out…. If you pop out to see us* this weekend (21/22 Nov; 2015) we have a free gift waiting for you! If you bring a friend- we’ll give them one too- honestly!
