day 14, 2013

well, a very Happy New Year to you all... I wish you all the very best for a wonderful new year ahead...
It has been such a long time since I have been here, ages and ages. I didn't intend to have a blogging break, it just happened that way, and I must admit I have enjoyed some breathing space,

being in Perth for my daughter's birthday, and catching up with all my children pre-Christmas

Christmas with the family at home,

New Years in Twizel, only just managed to stay up to see in the New Year mind...

and boy has the shop been busy! Some rainy days have meant that the days have been filled with shopping and stitching and such

and I even managed to get a few things done in the studio,

and a few customer quilts done in the evenings,

morning walks with Miss Ellie

and I must not forget, Chookyblue's SSCS - this is what Patricia sent to me...

thanks heaps Patricia, I simply love it and have been carrying my needlework in it since unwrapping it!

and this is what I sent to Sandy

and this is how my evening have been the last few nights...

lovely photos. Nothing wrong with a little break, glad you're back.
sounds like you have been kept busy- socialising and at work.
(couldn't see your swap goodies pics, not sure if it's me or not?)
