Looking back, looking forward.

Happy New Year everyone! It truly wasn’t my intention to take a break from blogging over the Christmas period; it just sort of happened. I’ve quite got out of the blogging habit. We’ve spent time with family and time as a couple. Freya and I visited Chatsworth House, all done up for Christmas in a theme of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

I’ve slept an extra couple of hours each night. Going back to work on Monday will come as a shock! So looking back, these were my most popular makes of 2013.

And looking forward? Well, I’ve started on new makes and I’ve a new camera to play with to improve my photography. I’ve also a wedding to plan and make for too. So Happy New 2014! Wishing everyone a thoroughly crafty time. I can’t wait to continue our mutual appreciation of each other’s makes and observations. And I did finish that cable scarf.

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

    • Mine is in July, when’s yours?
      I’ve lots of ideas in my head. I must make a start on making up some examples soon or I’ll just go into panic mode!
      Looks like 2014 will be big for both of us!

  6. Pleased to hear that I am not the only one who has been absent from blogging during the festive season. Work was crazy busy, then the preparation for Christmas I just never had a minute to spare. I am so happy to be back in touch with everyone again and am looking forward to hearing all about the new projects. Wishing you and all your readers a healthy, happy and prosperous 2014.

    • I’ve managed to snatch just a couple of short afternoons to myself over this two week period. I don’t know where the time has gone apart from in housework!
      Why does there seem so much washing to do? We seem to have worn twice as many clothes than normal!
