Onwards and Upward – Happy New Year

My New Year started today.  For the last 5 days I have still been operating on that amorphous, fluid time (holiday time) where it doesn’t really matter what day it is.  Today I rejoined reality, as Luke went back to work, and I was home alone with three children.

The kids played in the sandpit, drew with chalk, did a huge pile of paintings, and made an enormous cubby house with an airing rack, a couple of chairs, and all the quilts and blankets they could lay their hands on.

So 2009 started for me today, and I started a brand new project to celebrate.

The pile of fabric I collated is in my favourite palette of colours, and it gave me that feeling you get when you amass a whole lot of new stationery at the start of a new school year- the feeling of possibility.  This afternoon I picked up a needle and made a start (It’s a needle turn applique project).

I’m feeling good about 2009, it feels like exciting things might happen this year.

As I have three kids home, I know that posting is going to be a little light-on around here for the rest of the holidays, while I spend time with them.

My New Years resolution – to reply to comments more promptly -sorry if I owe you a reply.  To my small band of friendly readers – Happy New Year, may 2009 be full of possibilities for you too.

  1. Your day sounds just like ours, except todays tent was made with 3 chairs and the side of a couch with little peep holes to watch Peter Pan on DVD while I sewed binding down on the other couch. Love summer holidays! Enjoy!
