I know I'm not very good at responding to comments, but just for once I had the time and the inclination to do so. And blogger has eaten them. I mean, I know I have seven comments on my last post, I read them, I approved them and I can see them here on my blog. But they never made it home to my inbox? Weird.
So, I'll do it this way.
Cath, thank you for your comments and good luck in your new bloggy adventure. I hope you enjoy all of the friendship and inspiration that I have found.
Andrea, I have a few things planned, but can't seem to settle at the moment, maybe once I get the last of the Christmas decorations down.
AnnieO, Thanks for the comment. The feet belong to my husband, so I don't think they will be growing any bigger! LOL
Diane, thank you for your comments. You're so right, everything we craft is worth while. :-)
Lynda, I think my pile of project boxes and knitted finishes is testament to everything I've achieved, even if there are so few quilty finishes. A cuppa and a chat at Festival Of Quilts sounds good. Though I was considering Harrogate as recommended by Sue. I'll let you know once a decision has been made.
As I type, Cardygirl is down on the farm.
Ali, from Honeyfield Orchard wished all the best to myself and my Kiwi husband. Thanks Ali. I'll keep my fingers crossed for some inspiration to go with all that crafty time we're hoping for.
Wow, seven comments have led to eight links to eight wonderful blogs.
Can't have a post without pictures, even if it does have great links.
As you know I took part in Chookys annual SSCS. This year my recipient was Claire.
After a huge wobble at almost the last minute and a pep talk from Chooky, I changed direction.
I made a cute wee bag with a long strap. I covered a journal and made one of my trademark pears with off cuts. I also included some purchased items. Not the greatest of pictures I'm afraid, it was a horribly dark winters day when I took these photos.
This morning I started to take down some of the Christmas decorations. I'm sad to see them go, but happy that it feels like a de clutter. Always a good thing in my book.
I've made promises to two colleagues, one would like a cover for her kindle, the other would like a specs case, two nice simple and quick projects to start the year. I'm trapped at home all day on Friday (waiting for the TV man to come and upgrade our satellite system, I'm told the new TV would be soooooo much better for it.) So hopefully plenty of time to play.
