Happy New Year!

A very happy new year to everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that this year will be a great one for you.

I have a few new year resolutions, and one of them is to blog a little more regularly. I can't promise every day, or even every week, but hopefully more than last year!

First up for this year is a lovely ornament from Katrina that has been gracing our Christmas tree. Thank you so much Katrina - I love it!


I also have a small finish - the last for 2009 - and a start.


Caffe Latte by Little House Needleworks
Stitched on 32ct Oyster linen from Countrystitch


This is the second of the coffee series I have finished, so I started on the third one so I can frame them all together. They will probably be a present for my mum later this year.
