It's been a year since ....

Yes, we celebrated our first anniversary in our new home last week!  We love our new area with its beauty and diversity, its peacefulness and its proximity to all we need.  We love being close to lots of our grandchildren.  The cactus garden put on its own celebration for us:




 


Every spare moment of my week has been spent in making things for craft stall and church fete coming up.

Some needlecases:

A couple of table runners:



and quite a few of these:


I also have set up a page for Val Laird Designs on Facebook. You can find it here. 

I'll be organising a giveaway soon so keep an eye out for some details in a couple of weeks time.

Have a great week,
Hugs
Val

I'm so jealous! Your cacti are just gorgeous! I've tried & tried to get mine to bloom with no luch - must be that I live in northern Wisconsin! Thanks for sharing the beauty.

Hi Val- that year has gone by so fast. I do remember when you said that you had found the place you wanted!
Your Cacti are gorgeous, I have a rats tail cactus flowering at the moment, the first time for a few years!
Lovely work as usual, those needlecases are extra cute. :) Sandy.
