New Year Wishes.

In the early days of this New Year, I have some wishes for you...

May your home always be your castle... full of love, happiness, good health and laughter...



May your journey through the year be full of the greatest experiences....



May you reach great heights in all your endeavours...



May you never find yourself in deep water... and if you do, may you be a good swimmer....



May you sail through the year on calm waters....



May you always have someone to meet you when you get home....



May courtesy and kindness be mechanical.....



With many thanks to Wendy, Josie, and Marina, for inspiring me to start my own Boy's Story.... If you get the chance, have a look through this wonderful book of applique and stitchery projects, designed by Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched.


It has been a very hot start to the year, perfect for being inside  stitching... All you need is  a comfy seat, the air conditioner, a good DVD and something pretty beside you....
With many thanks to the lovely Mel for my very pretty scissor fob... I just had to get a pair of scissors to match...

Hope you all have had a lovely New Year.... May 2012 be very special....
