Growing up

As another year comes to the end I start to think about the year gone past and also the year ahead.

First to the year gone past.
It's been one hell of a ride. I participated in my first Doll Quilt Swap and discovered my love of photography. I managed to finish (big deal for me) quite a number of projects, including my first ever gifted quilt. We moved the shop to a brand new location that we LOVE and I also got to go on my first ever work related trip.
It's hasn't always been ups unfortunately. Mum broke her shoulder which was probably more emotionally damaging for me than it ever was for her, and I also lost my Grandfather not that long ago.
2011 has been incredibly fun and hard at the same time but I guess that's always the way.
One thing I am realising is the older I get, the quicker time flies.
Now to the year ahead.
With a new year comes new beginnings. Resolutions and promises to yourself and already there's so much on the horizon. It's time to grow up just that little bit more and spread my wings. Yes, early next year I will be leaving the comfort and safety of Mum and Dad's place and living with some friends. It's a pretty exciting time because with a new house comes new DECORATING! I am already in planning mode. We need a quilt or 2 for the living room, and a new one for my room. Maybe some curtains, and colourful cushions too... and I can't forget some lovely fabric covered canvas' for the wall. This is quite a long list of things which is daunting for somebody who never finishes things but maybe that should be my resolution. Finish ALL craft projects before starting the new ones. Easier said than done as I have already picked some delicious fabrics to turn into a cushion for my new bed.

To all who are reading, I wish you a very happy and safe Christmas followed by a bright new year.  I hope Santa is kind, but more so I hope you're surrounded by love and happiness.

I will see you in the new year and can't help but wonder... what is your resolution?
