There were two very wonderful events, or moments in time, in the first half of 2015. One in March when a beautiful new addition to our family arrived in the shape of a baby boy for Mrs K. This little one is a delight and a joy to us all - but especially the OGO who seemed to form a bond with the little one since day one. So we have now been blessed with FOURTEEN beautiful grandchildren. All strong and healthy - for which we are very blessed.

After the OGO's op in July I managed to re-ignite my passion for my craft work and set about making gifts for Christmas. I know, I know - such a nasty word so early in the year. But getting things started now means less rush and stress in December - especially as the OGO and I are off on another adventure from early September until the end of November. Anyway, despite being mid-year, I have managed to start ticking off my list of goodies for family and friends.

I still have a large number of PiPs to work on (maybe whilst travelling for three months do you think?), but I have also started (and finished in some cases) a number of new projects, as I felt the need for more challenging projects.

Of course, there are other "new" projects happening in the Woman's Cave. Things like the beautiful "Gift of the Month" projects from Faeries in My Garden - quite a challenging project the last one which arrived in two parts (photos next time I hope). Not yet completed but well on the way. And the Hexies Storage Bag that I showed you part of last post, is now finished and full of things to work on whilst travelling.

And so the next two weeks will be busy getting everything ready for our travels to WA with the camper trailer. Of course, there will still be time to work on projects in the Woman's Cave - and I do have to prepare some "hand" projects to take with me - how would I survive for three months without a challenging project or two!!!
