In between packing, watering the slightly crispy Christmas tree, digging out jars of chutney and generally muttering, ‘mustn’t forget that…’ before happily consigning said must-remember item to the depths of forgetfulness, Christmas and a new year are fast approaching.
The long nights, firelight and getting together with family all lend themselves well to ruminating over the year and what’s to come. It has been a busy year, with weddings, partings, reunions, changes at workplaces, growing children and new starts at school. I didn’t -I never do- manage all the crafty projects I had dreamily planned (hand pieced and hand quilted double wedding ring quilt, anyone?!) but I’m pleased with what I did achieve, and learn, and who knows what 2014 has in store. I’ll be away over the festive period so I wish you all a happy holiday, however you spend it!
Oh and no, I haven’t finished the neck warmer, Take Two. Or is it Take Four now. I can’t remember. But I have printed the pattern, and a long drive awaits. I can totally knit in the dark, can’t I?!
