Merry and Bright....


Happy Holidays
and best wishes for a wonderful
   2015  

My workroom has been twinkling brightly over recent days 
and today I'm looking forward to some relaxing time 
sitting right there by the tree with my knitting needles
...Oh yes...and with a cup of good cheer too... x

❇ ❇ 


...but first... 
I must show you my Xmas card from the
which I look forward to receiving every year
from a lovely customer and her own beautiful retired
greyhounds Millie and Tom who I know bring so much joy x


It's becoming a little tradition here 
to add my link over the festive season
(and you can find more about the Trust's wonderful work here)

❇ ❇ 

(Ashley's Yule Log from one of Nigella's books was delicious... :-) )

❇ ❇ 

...and I'll be back in the New Year
to share lots of new projects...
...thank you to everyone for your cards and kind messages...
and for visiting my corner of Blogland through 2014 x

...until then....take care...

...enjoy the magic...

  2. What a jolly post this is! I love this relaxed, somewhat mellow time of the year that follows Christmas Day.

    I have heard much about the very good works of the Greyhound Trust and thought that Christmas card was so charming.

    Best wishes to you for a fabulous New Year, filled with joy, creativity and good health and fortune.
