Happy Christmas Everyone

Christmas Myspace Animated Gifs

Another year is over, the presents are wrapped, the larder is full, decorations up and even had some snow.

I love Christmas but also look forward to the New Year. The time between Christmas and New Year I feel is a time for reflection, planning with renewed energy and looking forward to in this case 2010, clearing the decks for a new adventure to ensure that I get the best out of the year to come. To turn your back on the bad things that may have happened in 2009 to reflect on the good and embrace what is to come, looking forward to the new crafting calender for new ideas and designs.

My last gift made for this year is a lap quilt for my Sister, sprinkled with a sewing theme, a dash of flowers and hint of chocolate to complete I hope a perfect quilting recipe. An extra stitch a 'Time to Stitch' mini quilt.


In Trafalgar Square in London are 4 plinths, back in the summer the fourth plinth statue of Air Chief Marshal Sir Keith Park was removed for an event called 'One & Other' specially commissioned art works. One of the people to brave the plinth for an hour on Saturday 15th August at 18:00pm was my old boss Tim Andrews, he wanted to let people know about Parkinsons disease, how it had affected him and at the same time promote the latest album by Madness and I feel that I could not leave this year without praising him for what he did and put a link to his 1 hour of fame. I feel that the video clip says it all, please if you have time take a look.

On that note I would like to wish you all a Happy Christmas and a successful New Year and remember to follow your dreams as without them the world would not be such a good place to be.

    Your sister is going to be tickled with her new lap quilt. It turned out lovely.


  3. I love the quilt it turned out beautiful (hope your sister does not read your blog before Christmas) thanks for sharing the video clip
    I agree this last part of December should be for reflection and focusing on next year. We also must put the past behind us although hopefully have learned from it. May you be blessed in 2010 wow that is an odd number to write

  7. Hi Caroline!
    I'm with you about reflecting during this time between Christmas and New Year's. I'm truly ready for a new year and will be so happy to leave 2009 in the dust. Your quilt turned out lovely. Amazing video with Tim. Such a hard disease.
