Happy New Year x
Ive had a couple of comments that Ive been missing from Blogland and that you wanted to see me back - well New Year and all that thought now was the time to return and make a real effort to be more "Bloggy" in the coming year.
Firstly I wanted to share some of my lovely presents I received this year
from my lovely dear woolly friend ....
all of these truly wonderful goodies - I love lots of goodies, can you see two balls of adorable squishiness ?
Next, one of the gifts from my mum and dad was a bag she had started quilting 20 years ago (yes I did say 20 years!) and she decided to finish it for me and fill it full with .......
more squishiness.
I also received some lovely books, I love books, I know many of you are Kindle (there are other makes of e-readers available tee hee) fans but I just love a book, the feel and the smell and how they look all on the bookshelf.
Here are my Christmas books, including one from my lovely woolly friend which is a knitting orientated novel so I really look forward to that.
Im looking forward to each and every one of these.
looking back over 2013 which has been eventful I just think a lot of the times I value have been via the internet and my virtual friends, there has been support, advice, a shoulder and laughs, hints and tips, some wonderful patterns to try.  Your friendship means such a lot.  If you are new to blogging and have stumbled across me have a look at the Blogs I follow, they are truly inspirational and a joy to follow.
And lastly I thank my wonderful woolly friend for her friendship which I value and putting up with me for another whole year, we have had hilarious laughs and at times a good moan.  I look forward to yet another yarny year wonder what mischief we can get up to this year? 
So to all of you in Blogland and my friends I wish you a happy healthy crafty new year
ps: keep an eye out on http://lindacraftycorner.blogspot.co.uk/ there will be a new stashbusting challenge again in 2014 which was so much fun this year and a new Knit a Square a week challenge (which meant purchasing a lovely book for oh dear the hardship!) - oooo cant wait


  1. What lovely gifts Jaqueline, I love books too but I also love my kindle I do think there is a place for both, the kindle is very handy when you are going on holiday, Lots of lovely wool for you there, I love the variegated balls at the top. Happy New year to you and all the very best for 2014. :)
