I AM STILL HERE

OMG. It has been such a while since I have done my Blog, I had forgotten how the picture thingy worked! Finally cracked it - I hope - here hopefully not to bore you are some pictures of things I have been engrossed in whilst I have been AWLFB.

These are taken me sooooolong to do, I want at least 100,
not there yet...
I am enjoying making them, but oh my they take a while to do...
I am hoping they will work for my idea...
 While I have been making them I came up with yet another idea ,
so I will need to make about 1,000 of these!!!!!
Do you think I have gone completely leaf loopy??
I just love how some of them are turning out...
I hope you can see them glistening...
last one folks...
OK, one more but these are for something else entirely.
Does anyone live near a real Gingko tree.
I would love a real leaf from one...
*****************************************************
Then I got kind of carried away, glittermad as it were.
I played with a few Postcard ideas, and one led to, well...
 quite a few...
 close ups for you as I don't think the butterflies showed up too well...
 thats gold satin fabric underneath...
 I played at making a pinwheel with just thread, hmm mm
not sure I like this really...
 **************************************************
My lovely new threads - these are Nymo threads for my beading...
 and these are more gorgeous Valdani threads...
 **************************************************
I was in a SECRET SANTA SWAP on Janice's group - you had to spend a certain amount and send to 'someone' and someone else sent to you, you were not matched wioth who you sent to.
I got mine, just look what I got, I was allowed to open my package by Donna. She was my Secret Santa Partner, I am over whelmed Donna, so much I received...
 and inside were all these goodies...
 Thank you Donna, I shall make good use of it all.
********************************************************
I am in a ROW BY ROW SWAP on Angela's group
here are some of the rows I have sent and received...
to -
 to -
 from Kerstin...
 to -
 ***************************************************
This is for someone I cannot tell yet -
another group Popular Patchwork Forum - thought this looked boring, so -
 I've jazzed it up a bit -
 that's better don't you think?
 I liked the block so much I made it again but doubled the tree this time,
and this is for........
 ********************************************************
Remember the greenhouse that blew down!
Well here is Connie's new fencing, real posh what!
 and here...
 is our new greenhouse...
 way, way better than the plastic one don't you think.
***************************************************
It looks from this picture we didn't get much snow, well we didn't get as much as some folk, but it was enough for me and the birds who were starving, a split second before I clicked the shutter, this bird feeder was covered with starlings, then when I looked at the picture I had taken, only these two were there.
Tch!
 ******************************************************
Last but not least, these Postcards and ATC's are soon to be winging there way to.............

Well my goodness, that doesn't look much for the length of time I have been away does it? I guess I must have done something else! Oh yes, housework I suppose, boring old stuff like that. I am slowly catching up with all my swaps, I hadn't realsised how many I had signed up for, I do hope I have remembered them all. If I am signed up in a swap in a group you are in, can you let me know if I haven't done it yet please. I would be most grateful

I have a Gingko tree but as we are deep into winter here (yes way too early) there are no leaves.
Next summer!

You certainly haven't been doing much have you!!!!! How do you manage so much in such a short time? The leaves are intriguing and the swaps look great. I love the changes you have made with the Christmas Tree.
