The Christmas tree is now put away and treasured decorations nestling in their boxes until next Christmas.
It occurred to me whilst doing this.....that perhaps I love little birdies lol! These are just the clip on variety....
Decluttering several of my kitchen cupboards have happened too.....lots redirected to the recycling shop locally. It does make you feel lighter in spirit somehow! My scary pantry needs seeing to in the near future also. Not to mention my sewing/art cave....arrrgh! I wish I could be less sentimental about my Christmas Decorations as well and let some older ones go. But I don't seem to manage it! So many memories connected to them....even the tatty ones! Lost cause!
As much as I love decorating for Christmas I do love the simple joy of a clean and decluttered dining table......ahhhh feels very nice.
Little Phoebe is back on duty and has bought a friend to keep her company....
Progress is made on my January UFO challenge......I think perhaps I should aim for 2 blocks.....had way to much fun to make this one last for a whole month.
Another little Angel block is on its way too.
You may recall that I was not at all sure that I was going to enjoy my recent reading series but after beginning book no.6 I think perhaps I am slightly hooked!
So I guess there is substance to "Never judge a book by it's cover".
Well my break from my Summer cleaning and de-tinseling is over, so I best get back to it....
I am hoping you can find a simple joy somewhere in your day today.
I love designing my own patterns which I have named Rag-tag Stitchin' designs. I design all kinds of stitcheries and applique for quilts etc. I love designing Christmas projects especially. My Husband and my Family and friends are the most important people in my life.
