Back in February I won a draw on Nic's blog Down by the Creek creatingbythecreek.blogspot.com for her 2nd year anniversary and a few days later a very special little parcel arrived, inside was Mabel Monkey and her own bag of bananas, we shared the bananas and they were delish..........

she was quick to hop in the fruit basket to see if there were any more bananas,

She was very excited to meet Lizzie and had to sit nice and close while I stitched the binding on my wall-hanging.......

Mabel then had to play with the "Barbie wardrobe" that came with Lizzie...... yes I am a Barbie fan..... vintage of course......

This weekend my DH went on a boy's weekend fishing..... yes.....oh yes...... of course I did miss him and he came home with a good catch of Snapper and a Gummy.... yum yum...... so I was able to sew to my hearts content and I finished this cute bag... it will hold another sewing project .....

Mabel wanted to help show off my new sewing bag.... cute.....

it hangs nicely on my cupboard door

and I finished my Christmas Cheer wall-hanging at last, here it is already for next Christmas..... so now I can put two finishes on my list...hurray...

Now on to my April project, no pics yet.....

Hi Sheryl,
Your post is lots of fun and i am glad Mabel has settled in.
Your Christmas wall hanging is fab, i have the same pattern to work on but as yet it is still sitting in it's little bag. I should move it over to my WIP pile.
