Now with another new year looming it's time to turn around from the past and look forward to what's ahead.
Despite a shocking family tragedy before Christmas we were able to come together and celebrate the season with family and friends. No promises or new year resolutions for me as I never keep them anyway, just different plans to move forward with.
I did get time to whip up some little pouches for the table.
I have joined a couple of Face Book fabric de-stash sites and am looking forward to a big clean out of fabric, patterns and bits and bobs that I won't be using. It's a good feeling and I'm looking forward to this clean out.
Another change you may have already noticed is my name. While working for Queensland Health in a management role I never wanted my name out there and just used my middle name. Of course I have not worked for them for a couple of years now and decided it's time to ....come clean!!
There will be lots of sewing, cooking, gardening and collecting (not too much collecting) on the horizon for the next year with a little work thrown in for good measure.
I finished a little Christmas stitchery over the holidays but didn't get time to frame it, so it will have to wait for next Christmas now!
I also have the first block completed for Gentle Domesticity from Jenny of Elefantz. Hope to get going on the rest soon. I used other little stitchery's from the Stitchery Club as well to fill in the spare spaces.
Hope 2017 brings out the best in all. See you in the new year.
