Almost all over

Today is my last day of the holidays - I have been on leave since December 23 and have had a lovely long break with lots of nice things to do . Mainly just hanging around home, sewing, spending time with the kids, cooking and a few days at the beach - Port Elliot and Port Willunga vying from my best beach award - so luck to be here in South Australia . Back to work tommorrow .........

New Red

Working on my new secret red quilt - a zig zag pattern using up old spotlight fat quarters plus a lovely lot of new fabric from Hetties Patch. Had my first lesson on my Janome and I can't believe quite how excited I am by the thread cutting tool. I lovebit so much and I love the possibilities it presents.

Happy New Year

A whip around a few other blogs to see that I am not the only lucky girl to receive a new machine for christmas - I am the lucky owner of a Janome 6600 memory Craft Quilters Edition. So looking forward to it arriving on Wednesday - then lots of new years projects to start.

And looking at last years list of new years resolutions I am sad to say I have not managed one!
Have ordered the pool so that will move to a 2011 resolution- made less quilts and put on weight so the more sewing, more walking and eating more vegetarian food did not work out either - so for the 2011 list

Finish pool
Start garden
Walk more
Keep in touch with friends more
Cherish turning 50!! Will have to wait for November to see about that one
Still lists are good - and blogs make good reminders!
