Pretty little work bag

I received this pretty little workbag from my pen friend Carol from South Dakota. It has it’s own handy little pin cushion attached to the base. Thanks Carol, I love it.

While we have been relaxing in our New Zealand summer over Christmas with warm temperatures, but with quite a bit of rain, I must admit, Carol spends Christmas in the depths of winter. Her latest e-mail tells of major freeways closed with snow which disrupted a lot of Christmas plans. And then there was the 15 inches of snow around her home. Seems hard to imagine here. Guess a little bit of rain is not so bad then!

Thank you. Carol and I have been writing for quite some years now and she always sends me something special.
Merry Christmas to you too, and a Happy New Year!!

Just realised I'm the 500th aussie to visit your blog. Great reading!

That little bag and pin cushion is adorable. You've got a good friend in Carol, don't you?

And yes, our Midwest winter weather is awful. I've lived in Iowa for more than 30 years now, and I still don't like it. Retirement will find us moving someplace very far south!

Thank you for your kind comments. Hi Aussie Karen, does the rest of the world know that Kiwis and Aussies consider themselves friends and cousins? But not when we are playing sport!!
