The post you have been waiting for - The Lights of Home finished!



Finally I have finished this massive project! I am so glad to get it done!

Now I am already onto my next project The Sanctuary of Knowledge...I have decided to do that instead of the Irish Fae...

I'm so glad you have all shared the journey with me! Thanks for all your lovely comments over the last year or so. I started this project in February 2011 so it has taken me 1 year and 4 months to complete...

Cheers Cheryl

Eleven things - for Julie

Julie has very kindly tagged me. I am not following the rules and am not tagging anyone else but I will answer the questions she has asked...



1.)  Chocolate, Vanilla, or Strawberry?  (If none of these are acceptable, you must choose a flavor that is!) 


Chocolate! I am a chocoholic. I used to eat whole blocks in one sitting...

2.)  If you could meet any famous person, living or dead, and ask them one question (ONLY ONE), who would it be and what would you ask them?


Queen Victoria. I have read heaps about her life and really love how she was full of life and wasn't boring. I would like her views on the modern technology we have these days.


3.)  What's the hardest thing you've ever done and why was it so difficult?

The hardest thing I have ever done is to give up custody of my son when he was 10 years old. I only have him home for 3 months of the year and the other 9 months he spends overseas with his Dad. 


4.)  Who did you look up to as a child, and do you still look up to them today?  (This can be a parent, a rock star, an athelete, whatever.  You can also list multiple people.)


I looked up to a teacher called Mr Kallmier. He guided me for much of my teen years when I was in high school. A very wise man. I still remember stuff that he told me and I still respect that advice.

5.)  List the pros and cons (for you, keep it personal) of what you do for a living.  If you could go back and do it again, would you do the same thing, or change it?  What would you change it to, and why?

I am on a disability pension so I don't do anything for a living. Which I guess is why I can get a lot of cross stitch done!

6.)  What's your favorite meal?  (You can say anything in response to this, including dinner, breakfast, tea, lunch, etc.  It can be your fave meal of the day, or meatloaf and mashers.  Up to you.)

I'm partial to butter chicken. I also love a traditional roast dinner with the works (like yorkshire pudding YUM)
7.)  What's your favorite way to communicate your ideas to others?  How often to you partake of this method of communication?


I like email because it is non intrusive. People can deal with what you have to say in their own time. I send emails multiple times a week to different people.

8.)  What's the nicest thing you've ever done for someone you don't know?


I support Kiva which is a charity which does micro lending to poor people in third world countries. I just did my 20th $25 loan since September last year this morning!

9.)  What's the number one problem with the world today?


Disease and war (I know that's 2 but they are huge problems!)

10.)  Do you like technology, or are you one of those people that only puts up with it when they have to?  (By tech, I don't only mean computers.  I mean smart phones and HDTV and digital radio and iPods and everything.)


I love technology and I really want to get a smart phone...but I'm trying to talk myself out of getting one...

11.)  If you could have one perfect day, who would you see and what would you do?  (Get descriptive here people.  Write a paragraph or two.)


I would get all my friends together I have known over my whole life and have a party. And have many meaningful conversations. Life is about people you know, not stuff you own. You can take only 2 things with you and that's love and knowledge. Make sure you have a lot of love in your life and your life will be rich!
