Forgive me. Today I am feeling a little peaky. I was determined to see in the New Year and be rid of the old one. Don't get me wrong, 2010 wasn't all bad, in fact some truly great things happened. Events somewhat overshadowed everything else and I almost melted down. I miss my Mum more than I could possibly have thought or known but life has to go on for everyone else and in this New Year I plan to sort myself out.
I missed my blogging anniversary. I started blogging in December 2009 and rambled on to myself for a while and then all of a sudden all these wonderful people entered my world. It has been truly amazing, even meeting a couple of you. I met Sue (I Sew Quilts) and Elyte (Tea,Fabric and Other Things) and it feels like you have all become such friends and I have valued all your comments, your words of wisdom and comfort for which I thank you all enormously. I am looking forward now to seeing what the next year brings. I have a few new projects planned but have not forgotten the old ones. There are many unfinished things lurking in cupboards which need some love and attention and I shall do my best.
The cold, snowy weather brought the Fieldfare back into the garden. My neighbours tree has the most delicious berries, at least from a birds point of view and within a day they had stripped it bare of it's fruit. They really shouldn't be in our garden but I guess they go where the food is in abundance. It was however a great relief to see such green grass when all the snow melted. My husband fell over on the ice on Christmas Day and badly hurt his back. A week later it is getting easier for him and the Doctor says it is just badly bruised.
A little bit of floral cheering up.
The pile of jelly roll hexagons is growing and now totals 34. I am playing with background colours and this pretty pale teal is calling me although not yet definitely decided.
I am sure that my finger will hover over the buy button way more than will be good for me because as you will all know by now that I have no willpower or self control and someone has to keep the Economy going. I fear that I will not be alone.
May 2011 be a very happy and productive one for each and everyone of you.
