Happy New year to everyone. It has been a long time since I had the time, energy and motivation to do some blogging. I do hope things improve now that 2015 has begun.
Over the last 6-8 weeks I have been busy with work and life in general. I had a few small stitchery projects I played around with but nothing major. I ended up adding to the little knitted Christmas hat and stockings that I give as table decoration on Christmas day. I managed to complete a small nativity I had in the stash and gave it as a gift. However I neglected to photograph it, so have asked for the recipient to forward me a shot of it. Once I get it I can show you.
We had the family in from interstate over the Christmas break and most of December. So we had a lot of time with the grandkids, swimming, playing, shopping and making triple chocolate chip cookies. Many Christmas parties. I did get a few moments on the machine after Christmas and made a mermaid fin cover for our gorgeous granddaughter. I had trouble finding swimsuit material and finally sourced some scuba like material in a lovely hot pink. Then after a quick tracing of our little mermaid this was the result. Excuse the mess in the area but it helps to get a sense of “scale” – yep that’s a really bad fishy joke.
Now it is new year and I am not making a resolution- however I do hope that as it is a new year with 365 beautiful mornings and starlit evenings, 52 promising weeks, and 12 transformative months full of possibilities.
I wish this for you all as well. Have a fantastic 2015 everyone.
