"Final Last Words."

Hello,

Happy Monday to you.

This week I am so happy to have done the last bit of sewing that was required for the year. On Sunday I used up the leftover blocks from Lucy's quilt to make some matching pillowslips. Not a scrap was left over.


At the moment the house is quiet, I have a CD playing on the computer called "In the Garden" from the ABC shop. It is very peaceful though I know this won't last. I am happy to be enjoying this time before Lucy and David return tomorrow. I know they will say change the music!!! Classical music and young adults don't go together.

I have decided to take a little break from blogging over the Christmas, New Year holidays. So I want to take this opportunity to everyone who has played a part in my blogging. To those who have shared swaps, visits, emails etc you play a  part in my daily life and I thank you.

I don't know how often I will be blogging next year but I do plan to continue "My Happy Monday" posts. I have Pauline to thank for this, earlier on in the year she asked when they were coming back. I thoroughly enjoy these posts because you know most times it is the simple everyday things that "Make Me Happy."

Over the break I plan to catch up on all those projects like Block of the Months I got so enthused about but didn't keep up with etc. You know how it is, too many beautiful projects in magazines and blog land to entice me.

I will probably still have a look around blogs to see what everyone is doing, I will be like an angel looking over your shoulder armed with a quick-un-pick if you need it !!

So please enjoy the festive season. Travel safely if you are driving and remember that if you don't get what you want from the man in the big red suit you can always buy it in the Boxing Day sales.

Happy days.
Bev C
