Wednesday Greetings dear friends & readers
(or is it Tuesday still I have to ask myself ??!!)
Quite sometime ago, through the wonderful blogging community, I came across a lovely blog about a little woolly lamb named Baa & his amazing adventures.
Through this blog The Mother & I corresponded off & on for a couple of years .... until last week she mentioned they would like to do a roadtrip & come to visit me here at Threadbear Cottage
How Very exciting !!!
They arrived last Saturday .... The Mother (Karen), Miss H (Hannah) & of course - Baa
I put on morning tea for all of us . . . goodness me, we chatted & chatted & chatted . . . & suddenly, 3 hours had gone by in the blink of an eye !!
Baa was very patient while we chatted endlessly . . . & then Hannah took some photos of him around my garden & cottage

They very kindly & generously came bearing gifts . . .
. . . wonderful Op shop treasures . . .
. . . & handmade gifts as well . . .

The Mr has been milking lately so I get up early when he goes & try to work through the never ending list of jobs still to be done.
Yesterday morning I made another batch of soy candles in my kitchen as the sun came up ...
I must admit I am making many mistakes lately - 3 of this batch cracked & sunk in the middle.
I ended up re-melting them down & starting again. These are going as gifts for family members.
Thankfully my baking has been a little more successful . . .
As the sewing machine is not getting such a work-out lately, the two 4-legged members of the household have taken up residence on my work table. I am not too certain that Miss Pippi's position was comfy but she did stay there all night long !!
This will be my last post before Christmas, probably for the Year.
I would like to wish you all a wonderful happy & safe Festive Season & may the coming year be good & kind to all of us.

See you all again next year !!
With much love & friendship to you ALL
Julie, Blackie & Miss Pippi
