SEASONS GREETINGS

Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all been busy in a good seasonal way. My Sarah and I have been busy getting ready for our few quiet days of Christmas. We quietly celebrate Christmas here in my home. When Sarah was a wee lass we partied as much as we were allowed. Nowadays we enjoy the peace that the Christmas holidays bring us.

The year will soon be coming to an end. I seem to be giving way to daydreaming about all that I did during the past year. I’ve had ups and downs. I can say that on most days, I had something positive to write in my diary. After giving my accomplishments a bit of thought I have come to the conclusion that I need to take my creative life in a different direction. I’m working on a plan of action and my immediate thoughts are that I want to turn my crafting into a wonky naïve direction. I haven’t worked out exactly where that’s going to take me but I think it’s going to be fun making those plans. In the meantime, I need to step into my sewing room and take stock of what supplies I aim to use in my new crafting endeavour. There are miles of fabric and thread crying to be used. So, that’s my goal for 2019.

I finished all my Christmas crafting over the last few weeks. And although I’m itching to start a new project, I have controlled those urges to start something new and simply worked on my hexagons. Hexagons are always my to-go project when I’m in between projects. Slowly but surely my hexagon quilt top is growing. And while I work on this hexagon quilt top I’m thinking about everything I want to do in the new year.

It’s Christmas eve and everything I could do has been done. All the food for tomorrow’s dinner is waiting to be prepared. And all but one present has been wrapped. Even the new Christmas pyjamas are ready to be worn. The scented candles are lit, the wooden wicks are crackling adding to our quiet homey the atmosphere. The house is warm and cosy. And best of all my heart is at peace. I know I’ve done the best that I could all year long. I hope you all have a peaceful Christmas.

I guess that’s my report for today. I will take this opportunity to wish you all a super holiday season. I hope you all get to spend quality time with your nearest and dearest. Sarah and I will be spending the holiday making life better one quilting stitch at a time.
