2015 - Bring it on!

Well, the Christmas holidays are winding down and I was very pleased when Victoria told me today that it's Thursday, and not Friday as I thought, so I have an extra day!

My resolution is to learn how to relax and not to always be thinking about what I should be doing next.....we'll see how it goes.

George and his ringing pals rang in the new year at 11.30 last night and I stood outside listening.  We had a good evening with friends playing (very competitive) games of Humbug and then at midnight the champers flowed!

To blow away the cobwebs I went for a very long walk this morning (not early) and East Garston was like a ghost town - everyone shut up in their houses: understandable considering the dank, dark day it's been.

After a New Year buffet lunch I settled down and finished our Christmas puzzle

Very satisfying but there were two pieces missing - I wonder if my sister took them (she has history).

Then I looked at all the crafty presents I received this Christmas
Yummy biscuits from my nephew Sam and he gave me an old book he found too

Veronica at my quilt club does this so I'm quite keen to have a go (but I shan't be making a waistcoat.
A bunch of knitted Christmas trees from Jacqui ( I held them upside down at first and wondered why she'd knitted me green carrots).

A micro-macramé Christmas tree from Carolyn

A winter picture from Richard

A head band from Sandra (kept my ears nice and warm when I was out walking)

And a knitted head from Harry
(everyone should have one)

So, what a crafty lot of friends and relations I have.

Anyway, A Very Happy New Year to everyone and look forward to seeing you at our workshops!


  1. I can't see the comment I tried to post yesterday so I will try again !! Just wanted to wish you and Sandra a very happy and healthy 2015 - I really smiled once again at your very amusing couple of posts, they always put a smile on my face - Toni and I will look forward very much to the new list of workshops when you have them ready and hopefully we will see you again soon.

    1. Thanks Carole - looking forward to seeing you two in the New Year!
