Dove Tree Ornament

A nice dove to hang on the tree with your other Christmas baubles.

It looks a little off kilter in the picture, but I think that's just a case of prodding the stuffing into shape.

I sooo love the bright and cheerful colours that Mandy McKenna has chosen for her baubles here.

Okay, I must be getting old, because I didn't even know this little guy existed!

But isn't he cute?  Now I really want to get one or two of his games for Wren's DS so I can play them while she's at school.

By the way, the pattern also has hats for Mario & Princess Peach, so you can dress Kirby up!

Apologies for my extended absence

I realised over the weekend that the last time I did anything here on a regular basis was back in March.

That's over three months ago!

No real excuse:
~ we had our first holiday in over 2yrs,
~ school holidays,
~ I got into digiscrap design (see left).

I plead guilty to seriously neglecting this blog, and throw myself on your collective mercy...

However, I've been doing some looking around the interwebs in the last couple of days and have found some truly fab free patterns to share with you.

So if you'll grant me parole, I can guarantee that you won't regret it.  ;)

Stay tuned in the next couple of days as I wind back up to speed here and start pumping out the free ami pattern linkylove once again.

Jane :)
