Wishing everybody all the best as we leave 2013 and move into 2014.

May your friends be plentiful
May your family be loved
May you enjoy good health
May you have all you need
And may you get to make what you love.

I hope that I will get to enjoy making, baking and losing a few pounds.  This is my new years resolution.  Wonder how many I will manage to keep?

Best wishes

I hope everyone enjoyed a lovely Christmas Day.  As usual we all ate too much, watched tv, played games and had a great day.

I opened my secret santa soiree presents and I love them all and just want to say thanks to whoever my secret santa was.

I also received a great quilting book and a mug rug book in my presents which I am going to enjoy reading today and I'm taking Friday as my sewing day.  I have a nice break from work as I'm not back until New Years Eve.

Santa's Secret Soiree

I took part in Colorado Lady's SSS (Santa's Secret Soiree).

I sent my goodies away (I was a bit late due to everyone in the house being sick, it was the worst flu we've ever had).

A wonderful parcel arrived with some fab goodies (I know I'm not supposed to open them yet but I had a little sneak peak).  I don't know who my Santa is (they haven't put their name in) but I want to say thank you to them.

Above is a photo of the wonderful package.  I am going to open the goodies on Christmas Day and will put a photo up of what wonderful things I received.

We've have some terrible storms here over the last few days and our electricity has been off for a couple of days so I haven't been able to get onto the computer until now.  They're predicting more bad weather for the rest of the weekend and next week so Santa might get blown away with the strong winds.

Hoping you all have a wonderful weekend before the big day.
