I'm really good at this blogging lark aren't I!

At the beginning of December I lost my voice for nearly 3 weeks, but I seem to have lost my blogging voice for much longer. I don't know why I have difficulty in keeping up to date with it, but I seem to all the same.

I think Instagram might have something to do with it. It's such a good tool for a quick status update and for keeping up to date with others too. Nonetheless I still do read all of my usual blogs that I follow. Maybe I build it up into a big deal, thinking it has to be a mammoth post when a small post works equally well. Anyhoo I'll get down too it.

Sewing update: I have made 3 quilts since my last post. I have just completed an apron order too. I have a quilt start today and I'm working on a personal king size quilt project. My hubby surprised me with a Janome Memory Craft Horizon 8200QC on Christmas morning. It was my dream machine and I love it so much, I will be writing a full review on it in the near future. I do want to get to know it better though before I do that. It didn't take me too long to get to grips with it, I think it's my IT background. I read the manual 2-3 times and watched the instructional DVD twice before I turned it on. Yep nerdy me.

I have also had some bunting orders and there are always some cushion orders in the mix.

I didn't do any Christmas fairs last year. I wasn't prepared as I was so busy in the run up to Christmas and I knew that health wise I wasn't up for standing all day in draughty stands.

So happy New Year to all, I'll be back again really soon and below is a selection of what I'm working on and what I've finished.
