Hi everyone, I hope
you have all had a
lovely weekend.

Another mystery novel
for you, but this time
without the main victim
murdered first...
You will have to read it
to see what I mean  :)

The book title is....

by author
Thomas Perry

It was a nice change from the way murder mysteries usually start!!!

What are you reading at the moment?

Happy reading,  Jenny

Hi folks, I hope your week is going well.  Sorry if I haven't 'dropped by' lately, but I'm gradually getting back on track :)

As you can guess by the picture
above, I have been doing some Christmas craft.  I came across a cute design  by  Bronwyn ..... her designs are always amazing!!

I used back stitch for the stitchery, however for something different, I added a star to the sleigh.  The pics below show how I did it.....

I am definitely not wanting to claim the above as my own design!  My intention of this post is to show you how I stitched the star.  A big thank you to Bronwyn for such lovely designs.

Happy crafting,  Jenny

Hi everyone,  I hope you all had a lovely Easter.
The weather here was amazing...great for the fishing competition  :)

I've still managed to fit in some reading, and recently read...

First Family by
David Baldacci

Do you like mystery, murder,
political intrigue.....  this has got it all !!
I enjoyed it to the end.

There are a number of plots 
going on at once, but not in a confusing way.

Hope the rest of your week
goes well, and happy reading,  Jenny

Early Easter treats.....

Hi everyone, I hope your week is going well.
I know I'm a bit early, but I couldn't resist sharing this image with you, from

Cathe's lovely freebies... isn't it
gorgeous :)

I know I haven't been online much since the holidays started, but I have managed to leave a comment on Rachel ,   Val ,   Sandra ,   and a couple  of  visits  to Bronwyn's site :)
Before I forget, Renee  also has a lovely giveaway on her blog.....thank you Renee for the chance to enter :)

Given that the school holidays have started here, and I don't know when I will get back to the computer, I hope everyone has a lovely Easter!

Happy crafting,  Jenny

Hi everyone,  I hope you are having a lovely weekend.

As soon as I saw the cute free image recently, I couldn't resist using it with alterations above :)

The fishing competition has been going for quite a few years now, and makes for a busy weekend in Burrum Heads.  They also have fishing events for the kids too.

Talk of Easter also means a new month, so you might like to add this to your blog sidebar...

Happy crafting,  Jenny :)
