Happy New Year!

I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy new year and hope that 2010 brings you health, peace and happiness.As a family we have so much to be thankful for over the past year when we reflect back, but we also realise that nothing is guaranteed! May we be grateful for each new day and be thankful for the privilege of seeing another new year!

I got me a new house! I must warn you now, there are a few things I love; saltbox houses, willow trees and the colour barn red; so you will see plenty of those through time!

The following few photos are of some projects I am currently working on. The quilt is a BOM folk art pattern which I need to back and quilt yet.The twelve houses each have a relevant verse stitched on. Maybe not particularly prim but I love it all the same-after all there are saltbox houses!

Thought I would try my hand at a penny rug/mat. I have seen so many lovely ones on many of your blogs-don't look too close as this is a first attempt! (Notice it is red again):0

This little cross stitch I got in USA last year whilst on hols-they have such great choice in all lines of crafts!

These projects are hopefully what will keep me occupied over the next few weeks as I recover from surgery DV. I will probably not be posting but intend to keep up with reading your blogs so keep blogging!

Blessings, Shazy x


  1. Sharon, I don't know how you do it!! How on earth can you juggle so many things at once? I LOVE your new house and your penny rug promises to be fab!

    I hope all goes well with surgery. Will be praying for you.
