Happy New Year to you all!
I am a little late in my greeting but then I am playing catch up due to having spent over a week fighting the flu.  I am now considerably behind in my consumption of turkey dinners and planning to rectify that throughout January (sorry Rosemary Conley but I'll do my best to make them low fat!).
Consequently I am also a little lacking in news and photos having only managed to read a book and drink lots of honey and lemon drinks!  So I had a little look back over last year whilst I was sorting out my computer files and thought I'd just share a little with you and as I am back to almost normal now I can get on with all the January Jobs I have planned!

Last January we headed off to Devon and got snowed in!  Planning to go back again this year so hopefully the weather will hold off for us this time, although it was beautiful.

Can never have enough buttons!  Spring cleaning my button jars.

Feels like a lot longer but it was only last March that Maggie and I went off to the Country Living show in London.

The first of many trips to the beach!  New frisby worked brilliantly and is the best thing to chase in the snow too!

Some my new cushions and hearts from Handmade at Home in the summertime

And plenty of villagers enjoying tea and cake in the glorious sunshine and open garden day (not my garden!)

Back at Scald End Farm this year for their summer fair and my lovely neighbours the donkeys!

The lovely Molly who had a lovely reportoire of tunes to wake us up in the morning!

All the way into October we were still having some fabulous weather, beautiful sunshine just perfect for a muddy walk!  Clearly the previous weeks had been rather wet!

Racing into November and full swing into the Christmas craft fairs, this was my lovely view from my stand at Wrest Park this year.

And full circle back to December and it snowed again, as if we can forget!
So my January Jobs are kicking off with a jolly good tidy up in the workshop so I can get back to making things for the new year.  Lots of planning to do and maybe this year I can maintain a tidy and organised workshop, hmmmmm we'll see!
Take care all

  1. So sorry to hear how poorly you've been over the festive period, but lovely to have you back now, I hope you're feeling much better and raring to go.

    Lovely photos, it wasn't a bad year was it 2010, and hopefully this year will be even better for us crafters as folk go back to handmade and supporting small sellers (well you can live in hope!!).

  2. Oh yes - a good tidy up! And the diet - Happy New Year!


Thank you for your comments, I do read them all and sometimes I even reply, now that I have figured out how to! Thanks again, take care x
