....Season's Greetings!...

It's nearly here again isn't it...

.....and, as ever, almost nothing is ready...

...but then, that's been the way of things around here since about Easter-time!

However, these ARE done...



..and jolly-well pleased with them I am indeed :-)))

I've also finished these little darlings...



...who are now hanging on the tree, bobbing and twirling about. Tweet! Tweet!

As we approach the end of another year, I'd like to wish everyone joy and happiness.

Life is sometimes not as easy as we'd like, and having friends out there in blogland is a great blessing indeed. I thank you all for stopping by and leaving such kind and helpful comments.

Special thanks go to those whose communications come behind the scenes...

...you've been invaluable to me this year.

You know who you are.....and I love you to bits!

This will be my last post for 2010....

...I'm taking an extended blog-break until about the 10th of January....

...need some time on the computer for other things....

Lots of things to sort out...think about...plan for...etc

SEASONS GREETINGS!!!!

See you in 2011

x Chris

I love those little houses, I had every intention of making some but have been so involved in making beetles I havent had time. Birds are another thing on my agenda, perhaps later. Have a lovely break and I hope you have a fantastic Christmas and that 2011 is even better. Penny

All your little projects are great! You've worked very hard this year, and deserve a break for a few weeks. We all need time to relax and recharge. I'm sure lots of decisions and new ideas will be available for next year. Have a great holiday!

love you to bits, too!! you are truly a generous artist and have helped me define what it means to form community here in cyberland, which afterall, holds the heart as well as bricks and mortar.

your work -for sale- is very darling (not surprised!). I look forward to seeing more of your geometric stitching folly and genius in the coming year!
