WOYWW - New Year's Eve

My desk is empty but I thought you might like to see the finished quilty play mat that I made for Ben.
He loves it and so does his Mum!
You may remember seeing all the little red puffs I was making a few weeks ago.
It took a while to get it all together but it was definitely worth the effort.
He now has lots of his baby toys clipped round it through the ribbon loops.

As I have nothing else to show, I thought I would do a quick round up -
Out with the old in with the new....

Things that last year brought...
  • A wonderful grandson - such a joy for us all
  • Lots of fun and time shared with best buddies and family
  • A visit to hospital - thanks to wonderful treatment in hospital, I now feel back on top form after almost a year of not feeling well
  • A brilliant week of crafting fun at Montomery at Maxine's exhibition
  • Lots of get togethers with fellow crafters for workshops and other crafty activity
Things to look forward to....
  • Moving house to be nearer to friends and family
  • More crafty activities as above!
  • Plenty of baby sitting and playtimes with the youngest family members
  • Shopping for a new set of clothes - losing 2 stone makes quite a difference!
So, to all my WOYWW buddies...
All the best for 2015
May it be a great year for you all!

x Jo

You have lots of nice things to look forward to in the new year. Shopping for new clothes can't be bad! But moving house? Are you going back to Yorkshire?
Best wishes for the new year to you and your loved ones,

Glad you are feeling so much better now and better able to tackle the world. The thought of moving house would send me into major panic at the thought of moving all my crafting stash apart from the rest of my possessions. My intention is to take a box or drawer each day to go through and sort. I also have several crafting workshops and weekends away lined up to look forward to. Have a very Happy New Year. xx Maggie #50
