Wow it feels strange doing a look back over the year but as I'm back at work tomorrow and will be working on New Years day too, I need to do this post today!
This year has been an exciting one for me! I started this little blog of mine back in February and it's gone from strength to strength. The friends that I have made in this great community of ours is unbelievable, I love reading and commenting on blogs and the inspiration I get from each of you is priceless.
Here are a few snaps of the sewing that I have completed this year::
And here is a shot of some projects I intend to tackle in 2011::
For me 2011 is going to be more about quilting. I've decided not to partake in as many swaps and to really concentrate on churning out some quilts that I love. I've been preparing for this change in direction for the last couple of months and have got some of my favourite fabric lines all stashed and ready to go!
I'm planning on attending more Grey Circles Workshops run by the lovely Karen & Manda as well as going on at least one quilting retreat this year! I've also booked the 11-14th August off work so I can head down to Birmingham for the Festival Of Quilts. Phew! Big plans, just hope I can pull them off!
This year also saw lots happening in our family, the first being at last 'Mr. G' and I tied the knot!!
We had a great time in Florida with all our closest family, it was brilliant!
I took the plunge into the addictive world of Blythe::
I bought this Candy Carnival whom we named Boo! Since then I've acquired 3 more girls who I really need to photograph, another post maybe!
The little people have really grown both in the literal sense and in their personalities. 'Master M' really shocked us when he announced he wanted his locks cutting off just before Christmas!
And 'Little Miss H' well what can I say?! She is constant source of worry and amusement all at the same time! Moving her schools seems to have been the right choice, even though it was distressing for me, she seems to love it. My 'Little Miss H' appears happier, louder, more vocal, her speech is better and she just loves going on the school bus each morning!! No longer a stressed out, teary, quiet child - hooray!!
Finally, in terms of my personal life there are just a couple of wishes for 2011.
I really need to lose some weight and I really want another baby! Mmmm, those wishes are a bit contradictory aren't they?? After miscarrying in late November though it really highlighted how much we both wanted another Henshaw around the place!
So here's looking forward to a crafty, productive 2011 with lots of quilts made and even more good times with my great family!
Wishing you all a very Happy, Peaceful and Prosperous New Year!
