Hooray For Holidays!!

Hello to everyone out there in blogland! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, however you may have celebrated. My Beloved Geek Boy & I enjoyed a relaxing, quiet day with my folks, which was just what the doctor ordered after a crazy-busy couple of months. And we're now both enjoying some time at home, resting, recuperating, sleeping in (though GB's body clock isn't cooperating there! 😝 ) & getting around to tackling some of the jobs that have been on our "to do" lists for a while.

And with some rest & extended time at home, I'm finding that my creative mojo has kicked in (I think it had been holidaying in the Maldives without me! 😜) & I've been hard at fun-work designing. I've just finished prepping the second-last block of my block of the month design-in-progress & am looking forward to some stitching this afternoon in front of the cricket ... Yes ... I actually LIKE watching cricket. 😜 In fact, it's the only sport I'll watch. 😝 And something else I've started playing with is ...

... My project for Girls' Stitch In, where I'll be one of the guest designers. (I can't give TOO much away yet ... It would spoil the surprise! 😜 I've got lots of ideas I'm playing with already. Isn't it wonderful how some quiet time at home can recharge your batteries?!

If you really want to spoil yourself (or drop hints about late Christmas gifties or birthday gifties! πŸ˜‰) you really should come & play with us on March 14 &/or 15, 2020. In case you'd like more details, I'll pop them on the end of this post. Nobody organises a better stitching retreat than the Marvellous Marion & Stupendous Steph of the Quilters Angel! πŸ˜

But right now, I think it's time for some lunch before I settle down to stitch & help the Aussie cricketers beat New Zealand ... Sorry to all my Kiwi buddies! 😁 Oh ... OPAMers ... It's time to get your last tally for 2019 to me & update your sidebar lists. 😁 I wonder who else has been enjoying some holiday sewing time? HOORAY for holidays! 😁😍 Til next time ...

I'm glad you had an enjoyable Christmas and most importantly, some time out. Oh, how I wish I could come along in March, but that is not to be..... We both enjoy watching the cricket too. It is a nice way to relax. I did get my Plus Quilt binding stitched down, though. Have fun playing with needle, thread, pencil and paper. Happy New Year to you both. Let's hope it is a little calmer than the last one.
