Over the Christmas holidays I started a few hand-stitchy things, which I hope will be finished early in January, the sewing machine has not been touched in over a week, and that doesn't feel like an entirely bad thing.
And so with 2013 coming to a close - it has not been the best of years, but heck, it hasn't been the worst. It has pretty much all been documented in this little corner of the blogisphere, and it should never go without saying that I cannot thank you enough for stopping by, reading my waffle, leaving comments that make my day, and making me smile.
Once again this year has proven the power of friendship built from a love of fabric of all things! I met up with friends old and new, been involved in secrets group for celebration and to console, I have contributed to charity quilts and bee quilts and stitched up gifts and prizes as well as a huge load of things just for me, me, me!
Tomorrow I will indulge in a pictorial review of the year just gone, and before the end of the week I will be rounding up those FAL makes and plotting ahead for 2014.
If you have the energy to go out celebrating, have a safe New Year, or if, like me, you will be snuggled up under a quilt watching others celebrate on the TV, I will raise a cup of tea to your good health and happiness in 2014 xxx
