Well yes, actually, it has.
Funnily enough the last post I did coincided with the start of a new contract - Series 3 of 'How Not to Live Your Life' which has just finished it's run on BBC2 (catch it on iPlayer). From that job I went straight onto the next and then the next. As well as working full time I have been attending rather alot of craft events - large and small - which I had arranged (and paid for) before I knew that I would be working up to the end of the year.
It has been a very tiring and stressful few months to tell you the truth but I am sure that in a couple of weeks time once I have had time to relax and reflect I will realise that although this year a few hard lessons have been learned, overall it has been worth it.
I finish my contract today and I am looking forward to having some time to play around with some new ideas and fabrics that I have found. First of all though I am looking forward to spending some quality time with friends and family over the festive season!
In the meantime I would like to wish a very Merry Christmas to anyone who stumbles across this poor neglected blog! And a HAPPY NEW YEAR (just in case I don't get back here before then!)
PS: I took this picture way back in the summer when I was dog-sitting - in fact it was the day of the Queen's Birthday and I went to the local WI to buy cakes. A nice summer image to feast the eyes on on a cold winter's day!!
