Just a quick post for Xmas

I have not posted for a while as I have been very busy, with grandchildren, health etc.  I have managed to keep up with all my swaps but apart from that very little sewing.  My illness causes me a lot of pain so sitting at the machine has been a problem.  Never mind next year will be better.  I have been following everyones adventures on their blogs and am very envious of all your achievements.  I have got a little caught up with some blogs from the USA as they hit on my other love, updating furniture etc.  I know some of you like the shabby chic look like I do, so if you have several hours, just log onto one and you will be kept busy for a long time just dropping by.

Unfortunately, my family will be leaving for USA on Sunday, we were going to go with them, but we have had such a big year, we decided to stay home.  We will travel for a short time mid next year, I am still envious as they are spending 10 days in one of my favourite cities  New York and then onto Disneyland.  They are stopping by San Diego so I have given them instructions to the most fantastic outlet shopping I have every seen.  The area is as big as most of our large centres here,

Well better go, it is the day I have the grandkiddlies and they want to go to the pond and feed the swans and ducks.

Everyone have a great Xmas and New Year and keep on stitching.


  1. Goodness you have a busy life, so sorry you have not been well! Thank you for your sweet comment on making furniture appliques, it is so easy and makes such a difference in the appearance of furniture.

    Merry Christmas!


  2. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I hope you are able to make the tree skirt. It took me about three hours. I wish I lived closer to my grandkids. I only see them about once a year. Have a wonderful Christmas and stop by again some time. I promise I will do the same.
