Still Here!!!!!

Yes I'm still here in blogland after a totally unplanned break from my crafting space.
I did take a wee sabbatical from sewing & crocheting & any such handy work for a time over the holiday season.
Before I waffle some more I must say A very belated Happy New Year to all my my online friends, hope you all had the most wonderful time :).
I did manage to get a lil bit of work done.....this scrappy quilt for instance

Finished, complete, a Tah Dah for the first time in a long time.
It feels good to complete something at last & I am pleased with it.

A scrappy quilt deserves a scrappy border, I do like it..........

Lots of yummy scrappy  colours...................

Am so happy with how colorful it is, I can't wait to start another, lots of scraps to be used up, how nice they look all put together in a cute quilt.

I'm working on a few other projects also.....long term's how they are progressing
Crochet blanket......sadly neglected cause of my crochet sore hand (recovered now) so back to it

My cross stitch sampler, a real long termer ......enjoyable though

And a kitchen makeover, a repaint, a much needed makeover

I'm about half way through this, will show you some more detail during the some lovely prints to frame online, just the trick with my wee space
Well thats my news for now, hope to be back soon with more crafty endeavors
Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead
