How wonderful to start the new year with a fantastic storm and a good bucketing of rain! The garden is being gently coaxed back to it's pre - heat glory and the birds are singing again.
My motto is - if it's too hot to drink tea and sew, then it's too hot altogether!
I enjoyed my week off from blogging and am looking forward to seeing what you've all been up to.
I finished this bear in the nick of time for Christmas, he is now snuggled in one of the girl's beds.
He is made from lovely soft velour and stuffed with wool. I knitted his scarf from organic yarn. He's really cuddly. A tip for scarf making for toys - sew them on, or you'll forever be re - tying them!
I don't tend to celebrate the new year, I think some people go a bit overboard. I don't make so called "resolutions" either, but I do think it's a good time for assessing and making new goals.
So.. I do have a lot of goals, hopes and dreams for this year, many of which I'll be sharing with you along the way.
