Happy New Year

It is hard to believe that another year is over. 2015 has been a lovely year with wonderful family times, the birth of little Jack, some holidays, plenty of stitching and lots of special times with friends and family. Thank you to all those who have continued to visit this blog. It is a fun way to keep track of the days that certainly fly by!!
It was exciting on Tuesday as Anni Downs' new book arrived! I am heading away in a few days so enjoyed getting some of the stitcheries prepared to take on holidays.

Ma headed home on Monday but it was so special to have her here over Christmas. The great grandchildren enjoyed time with her very much. Alice visited yesterday and wanted to know where Ma was!


Ma also loved having a special cuddle of little Jack.


On Sunday, Ma and I and Paul and Jeni are heading away on a cruise to New Zealand. I am preparing lots of stitching to do and taking some books too! Looking forward to a lovely, relaxing time away on the Dawn Princess!

Happy New Year Sylvia. Love your Christmas pics and how lively having family would have been. Your grandies are very cute. Enjoy your cruise around New Zealand and your stitching time. I can't wait for my Annie Downs book to arrive.

Loved the photos of great-grandmother and the babies. Thanks for sharing. Can't wait to see what you make with the Anni Downs designs. Enjoy the holiday from a very snow Ottawa, Canada.
