Belatedly Happy New Year to everyone! I hope you’re all keeping warm (or cool if you’re in the warmer areas of the world). We have had some snow, enough to look pretty, but fortunately up to now we have not had the deluges that many have had. However, I am not holding my breath as heavy snow is forecast for the weekend. Up to now we have been living off the excesses of Christmas shopping but I will soon have to venture out to Sainsbury’s for a re-stock.
Did you all have a good Christmas and New Year? We spent time with my Mum here and then with her at my brother’s for New Year. The photo above was taken off the telly hence it’s a bit blurry but I like the shapes of the London Eye pods, maybe there’s a quiltie in there somewhere?
I’ve finally got round to sorting my sewing space out a bit today and my sewing machine and embellisher are at least now in a position to be used. My embellisher has been sadly neglected so I intend to put it to some use this year. The Journal Quilt size for the Contemporary Quilt Group of the Quilter’s Guild has been announced this week and it’s 7” x 10” in a portrait format so I am thinking of working some of them with the embellisher. I worked all of my quilts last year in portrait format out of choice so it will stretch me further now that I am obliged to work the same way this year.
Lots of people have been talking about their ‘word’ for 2010 and the one thing that popped into my head was “Positive Mental Attitude” which I think will resonate through all areas of my life if I can only keep it up. I am not very good at making and keeping resolutions but I did find it useful to remind myself of my ‘focus’ word last year.
Well, enough rambling. My mojo is still on holiday and has left me with a grotty cough for company. I have finally given in and booked to see the doctor tomorrow as I think it may have progressed to the realms of an infection. We shall see. I leave you with a glimpse of my DH exhausted by the New Year indulgences and telly watching! lol
Bless! (He said he knew my mum was taking this pic and was trying not to laugh!)
