"CHEEKI" - JAPANESE DOLL


I finished all 4 "Cheeki" dolls last week. One is for me and the other 3 for Birthday gifts through the year.

The story of Cheeki:

An Australian soldier (from Brisbane) named "Charlie" married a Japanese girl after WWII and brought her to Brisbane to live, they had a daughter named "Cheeki". Charlie opened a Sushi Train in Brisbane and Cheeki worked with her father at the Sushi Train.

2009 ADVENT SWAP


Here is my gift I opened on 25 December, a gorgeous bag which I will enjoy taking to the markets and craft shows.



These are the wonderful pressies I received from Nannette in Utah, America for my Advent Swap 2009. I really enjoyed this swap (the first I've participated in), it was very exciting opening a pressie every day for 25 days. How spoilt was I, look at all of my wonderful gifts and the lovely handmade items Nannette made for me - I will treasure always. Plus I have
made a friend for life living on the other side of the world.
