First of all HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone who puts up with my infrequent rambling. Thank you especially for your friendship and encouragement and I hope that your coming year is full of fun and creativity!
These are my favourite makes of 2015.

It was a quiet year creatively because the rest of life was mad:
1 graduation from primary school
1 total house reorganisation
2 bedrooms completely redecorated
1 funeral: odd how bittersweet these events can be - so very sad whilst simultaneously so nice in terms of meeting up with relatives one doesn't see very often
1 lovely week in Arran, during which there was
1 flood - through the ceiling of one of the newly redecorated bedrooms:-(
1 insurance claim
3 weeks in temporary accommodation and three months of living in chaos
Highlight of the year was renting a little studio and a lot of days were spent scraping old concrete off the original quarry tiles, and painting the breeze block partition wall.
Finally, I mustered some courage and entered two quilts to Quiltcon - Wild Geese and Walk, Don't Walk - neither of which were accepted. I know I have to improve my technical skills so I just look forward to keeping on experimenting.
Please join me in 2016!
