Another year closes

Seen as it's New Year's Eve I thought I'd pop by and do a quick round up of 2012. It only seems right to do that doesn't it?

2012 has been a very hectic and giving year round these parts. We've had a new addition to the family in the guise of the very gorgeous baby Hunter and I've taken on a new business Simply Solids which thus far is doing well.

Here are a few snaps, in no particular order, of the highlights of 2012 for me.

Looking back through my photo's I realise I've had quite a productive year even though I was initially thinking I was going to moan about lack of productivity when I started this post!!

For me 2013 is going to be about scheduling time to sew. I do feel other things are always taking priority and it's leaving me feeling angst just now, spinning so many plates means I really must get my time management sorted! I have lots of nearly finished WIPs that I want to bust so I'm hoping for lots more to show here on the blog!

I hope you all have a fabulous New Year whatever your plans, me I'm working a night shift on the Neo-Natal unit making sure the tinies behave themselves whilst the hubs has a NYE party at home with the kiddos!!!

See you on the other side and thanks so much for all your amazing support and encouragement over the past year XXXX
