Is your house back to normal? Ours isn’t.


Christmas lingers around here. 


I guess it’s because it’s always hard to tell all of the excitement goodbye.  So we haven’t done much around here lately.  Well, I take that back.  We’ve done plenty of playing and lounging and snacking and laughing and napping and well, more playing.  I always feel a little bummed come December 26th, and out of sorts, and like life isn’t quite right until the New Year rings in.  (Anyone else have that problem?)  But then I always love a new year.  And a fresh start.  So, it’s all okay.


(And I have a few goals/projects/ideas for the new year that I’m excited to get started on.  And well, share with you.)



Until we see you again Christmas Joy.  We sure enjoyed you this year.

By the way, how many of you got new sewing machines for Christmas?


Well, I have heard from many of you who have (hooray!  and yay!  and you’re going to love your little machine!)…… I have a few more “sewing tip” posts to share. 


Hopefully starting tomorrow.


So maybe you can jump right into sewing.  And fall in love with your machine.
