New Decade

 

It is 10 years since I started my blog and so, along with a new decade I feel the need to start afresh. Firstly, Happy New Year to anyone out there still reading along. Much has happened in the ten years both good and bad.  Ever the optimist I am looking forward to this new decade. I am sure there will be lots to talk about, plans to make, projects to finish and start. New starts are always so exciting. 



This project is on my list to finish this year. It is Ruby May by Kellie Wolfsohn at Cutting Cloth in Australia. A chance to use up lots of pretty Liberty fabrics. They are held down with glue baste ready to applique and the centres have pretty embroidery yet to be started. It may be a while.



At the end of the year my husband and I went out for a breath of fresh air. Our favourite destination is Sidmouth. It never fails to please whatever the weather, even on a grey day.

Here is to a great start, great year and lots and lots of stitching.
