Finally, I have finished Ziya's cross stitch.
Some of you may remember it from these previous posts (If not, you can take a peek over at flickr 1, 2,3 & 4). I was starting to worry that I'd still be dilly dallying around with this come his first birthday. I worried so much that I peeled myself up in the wee hours of the morning to finish it off a couple of nights ago. It's such a great feeling to complete a piece like this, especially seeing that it's been waiting ever so patiently........... for way too long.
Now for the framing!

Missing in Action ....

Ziya's new bedside table and spinning toy bought on a recent trip to Newcastle.

I'm sorry for dropping off like that. I just vanished into the craziness of the last couple of months. To-ing and fro-ing between Sydney, Melbourne, Lorne, Newcastle, Pearl Beach and The Blue Mountains. Each time I returned home it was enough just to regroup, relax, sort out the endless amount of washing and repack. Alas, there was no time for craft. I'm totally out of touch with what's been happening with all the crafting peeps out there.
We've been making the most of our last weeks in Sydney and ticking off all the places we listed as 'must do's' before our return to Melbourne at the end of February. While we pack up here and head home posts could still be a little few and far between but I'm looking forward to picking up blogging momentum once we return.

Given the recent bushfires in Victoria and the enorminty of loss that has occured there I think it's wonderful the Craft Blogging Community are banding together to help the people of Victoria rebuild their lives with hand made treasures a plenty.
Head on over to:
The Toy Society who are asking for people to make and donate toys for children in effected araes and
Meet Me at Mikes who have a full listing of crafty way to get involved and help out.
