Happy New year!!

Welcome to the New Year! I hope you saw the new year in with people you love.
New Year's Eve I got some great news that Edit (in Hungary) received her wayward parcel and it was well received. Phew! what a relief. Unfortunately Ididn't take a pic of what I sent so I hope she posts a pic that I can pilfer.
I received a wonderful parcel from Carrie, a christmas parcel that was a give away on her blog. It has some lovely Christmas projects which will come in handy for the 1 Christmas item per month target. Narelle and I had discussed getting a headstart on Christmas crafting so we are hoping to make some Christmas crafting each month and try to encourage each other to get things done. Narelle has made a snazzy button which you can find on her blog or at the bottom of my blog. You can join Narelle's list of crafters at her blog.
I am looking forward to using the goodies from Carrie.  Thankyou so much Carrie!

I have some hexies to show... Here is my new Hexie project. Seems to be growing slowly..

My other hexie project will be added to with the hexies I receive in the 1 inch hexie swap. We have our January swap list so I will be making a new hexie for the lovely Melody.

The other day  we went for a lovely drive to pick fresh raspberries. They were just divine! While stopping for lunch we were parked right near Mrs Martins Quilt shop, somewhere I have been 'busting' to get to, to buy some felted wool. Wouldn't you know it they don't reopen till around the middle of January! Talk about bad luck, if I didn't know better I think my hubbie and the boys were quite happy about that. Just as well I can buy over the phone and net!
Hope everyone will have a year filled with friendship, familiy and good health (with lots of craftiness thrown in!).

OK Marina, I have made a commitment to the monthly Xmas gift. We will see how it goes.
Don't worry about the quilt shop, I am sure you will get there another day. I just hope that you got lots of raspberries. Happy New Year to you and your family.

Hi Marina,
Your new hexie project looks so beautiful. I will really enjoy watching it grow.
I thrilled you will be sending me a hexie flower - lucky me.

Lovely goodies you have received.
So glad your wayward goods arrived at their intended destination after all their travels.

Christmas crafting through the year now that sounds like a good idea, I'll go take a look.

Pretty hexies for your latest project.

Hope the New Year fulfils all your wishes and more. Enjoy

Happy New Year Marina, I hope that you will have lots of fresh raspberries and lots of succesful visits to quilt shops.

You must have the patience of a saint to be making hexagons.

There is certainly a theme of making Christmas items in advance going round. I hope we can all encourage each other to stick to our goal.

Happy New Years! What gorgeous pressies from Came! Love the hexies too!

Serenata said...

A very happy new year to you as well! Love the gifts and the new hexie project.

The hexies look lovely!

Doing a little Xmas crafting each month is such a good idea. I rn out of tags so I did think about doing a handful each month this year. It just feels so good to put all the Xmas stuff away though..... ;)

Sorry you didn't get to go in the quilt shop. I get a little upset when I run into that too.
Glad to see you got your package okay.
Happy New Year dear friend.
