Happy New Year!

Hi guys!

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year - a Happy New Decade, even!! 2011 has arrived at a hare's pace, it doesn't seem that long ago that we were celebrating a new millenium!!

 Well, I'm still having issues with getting back into cardmaking at the minute, between shopping, visiting and just enjoying the festivities, crafting has been put on the shelf for a week and I'm just enjoying the holidays!  I did get to finish my brother's present (I don't know if you'll make it out from the photo, I should've staged it better, but hey-ho!)

I made a patchwork bed runner and cushions and a magnetic calendar, so it works no matter what the he pointed out, the only thing is that he'll have to keep it updated, or he might still think it's three weeks last Tuesday!!

I got the most wonderful handmade bag from my SIL, I'd put an 'x' next to the one that I liked in the pattern book she got for Xmas last year - cheeky, I know - but it worked and I now have a lovely new handbag to show for it...and you can never have too many of those!

The boys are back in school next week, so I'm hoping to get back to some sort of order, once all the decorations are away and the presents have found places to live!  Our waning house is now bursting at the seams, we could do with an extension...scrap that, we just need a bigger house - or less stuff?!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and I'll hopefully have more to show you in the next couple of wishes for 2011!
