Last post of the Year!

Hello hello, is there anyone still there?!

I hope everyone had a good Christmas? 

It's been a month since I last posted!

I never intended to be away from blogging this long, but as my regular readers will know (as I bored them silly with photos of my makes for months!) I had been busy preparing for a Fair, then once that was over it was full on with the Christmas preparations, and now suddenly here we are out the other side and just about finished for this year!

The Fair went brilliantly, and was well worth all the hard work, and Christmas was good too with family here both Christmas Day and Boxing Day, so the time in between was busy with shopping, cooking, cleaning and decorating.

Now we're nearly at the end of the year, time has slowed down and we're enjoying long daily walks and leisurely pottering around the house, eating too many chocolates and watching too many films, but its the only time of year when we get to do this so I'm giving in to it!

Next week all should return to normal for us, and I will then get back on with some sewing. But in the meantime I'm having a complete break from it, mainly due to the fact I can hardly get in my sewing room for the mess!

I'm looking forward to the New Year, to the days getting longer, to watching for signs of life in the garden, and to the occasional warm and springlike days that we sometimes get in January and February.

I'm one of those people who likes to take stock at the end of each year, to look back on what I did, what I achieved and what I didn't, and to make plans and set goals for the coming year. 

Do you do that too?

And of course there's the usual resolutions about eating better, exercising more, planning menus properly etc etc.......and this year, to blog more regularly!

I'm hoping to catch up with you all very soon, but in the meantime...............

.................. here's wishing you all a happy, healthy and creative New Year!
