A New Year


2009 was a BIG year for us.  We moved to a new town, Chris started a challenging role at work and Jasper arrived in style!

I think we’ve done pretty well adjusting to all the changes and the demands of parenthood – sure there have been difficult times (breast infection anyone!) but we’ve got through them with (mostly) good humour.  Things are only going to get even better now that we are working on getting Jasper to sleep through the night without feeds (YAY!!)

Creatively, things have been ticking along.  I’ve been learning to sew garments, but didn’t do as much pattern making/adjusting as I would have liked.  I did more hand embroidery and put together lots of little items for the linen closet.

So, on to the future!  2010 I want to extract as much joy out of it as possible.

We want to travel this year – We’re headed home to Tasmania in January and we would also like to go on a skiing holiday (possibly New Zealand), and we’d also like to spend some time in Bali or Singapore this year (both very easy travel destinations for us here).

My creativity will continue on as usual, a bit of sewing, a bit of embroidery, a few new pattern drafting/adjusting skills. Maybe a few quilts.  Whereever my nose leads me 🙂

Thank you for visiting and reading this blog.  Your support, encouragement and interest is important to me.  I’ve been blogging here for 5 years and it has provided SO many connections to wonderful, creative people all over the place. Happy New Year to you all!
