New Years Eve and Welcome 2016

New Years Day.  A fresh start and a new chapter in life waiting to be
written.  New questions to be asked, embraced and loved.  Answers
to be discovered and then lived in a year of delight and self discovery.
Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream with
pen in hand ... only dreams give birth to change.

Sarah Ban Breathnach.

It is New Years Eve and I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas.  At midnight tonight a new year starts and we welcome 2016!

Happy New Year to you all and I hope that is a good one for all.  I am excited that I have new designs to play around with and a journal full of ideas and inspirations.  I did receive some beautiful books and stitchery items so I will be able to sort through my work room and make room for new items and get some work baskets ready......  

I will be back here on Monday 11th January when the house will then be back to normal and we have waved a sad farewell to Jo. 

I am having a week sorting everything for my business and workroom and that is why the 11th seems like a great day to start writing again and telling you of my plans and designs for 2016.  Also we plan to put our house on the market in the next month or so and a move will be on its way....2016 is going to be new chapter for us personally and I hope to get an old farmhouse and have a work building away from the house so it is like going to work daily and keep the house free of pins and needles ( well work baskets may creep in on the winter evenings!)  I am excited and really ready to move.  I am hoping to have the strength to do so as well.

Hoping you all have a lovely evening whether it is a huge party or a quiet gathering ....

Thank you for 2015 and all your support, which I hope will continue and grow in 2016. XX
