Well...

...that was a longer time away from here than I had planned!  After living in a hotel for a very long time, our shipping container eventually arrived here in Australia. And we are now in a rental - yay!!!!  What is not yay, is that my computer went a bit funny, and I've lost all my photos that were on there - great.
 Anyway, while I was without a sewing machine - I bought a crochet hook and made a rug for the girls. (not that they need one right now!) I'd only just learned how to do the treble stitch, so this was good practice!

 
And a cover for my new phone!

The girls are loving school here. The little one will be joining the Easter Hat Parade soon, so I've made some bunny ears and put them on a plastic bowler hat. She's going to add a few other things - which is going to look very cute!

And this is a very last minute piece, for a charity exhibition in Tokyo. Money from the sale of artwork will go to the Japanese Red Cross Society. They have asked for artwork to include a heart somewhere - can you spot mine?

PS. its good to be back!x
