Happy New Year to you all!
I had good intentions towards the end of 2013 I had been very organised in the run up to Christmas, I had been busy with Christmas makes for selling at craft fairs and a few clothing alterations for people but left myself just over a week to make some handmade gifts for family and friends. That was until I got a quinsy on my tonsil, which effectively stopped any plans I had and resulted in an overnight stay at the local hospital, still I recovered by Christmas day and lost weight too, you have too look on the upside!
I didn’t get to the hand made gifts and had to do a quick dash to the shops but I had some nice craft items as presents,
Thank you to Aunty Christine, who also gave me a bag of scraps left over from her sewing projects.
and a new sewing box with a few bits in from my sister.
So now I have no excuses apart from finding time, I’m not sure where to start. I suffer from the same problem as many crafters, too many ideas and not enough time!
One things that keeps me away from my sewing machine is my friends dog. When I got made redundant I volunteered to walk her (the dog that is not my friend) as the family are out at work all day and well I needed the exercise. Another thing is my son and I don’t mind that either of them keep me from my work, well most of the time I don’t mind. I started the new year off with them both on a walk in our local park.
It had been full on rain here on new years day so when the sun came out on the 2nd we made the most of it
Wishing you all you wish yourselves for 2014
