I keep wanting to pop in and say Hi, and show you all the new fun stuff I have been up to - but there is none. 
I had some surgery in late November and am on the slow recovery. No sweeping, vacuuming, stretching. You get it ! 
I feel good and am well enough to be getting frustrated.
I could say as a result of this, Christmas will be a low key affair and the house is a mess, but surgery or not, the state of the house and the Christmas plans would be the same.

How about your Christmas ? Big plans, an enormous table of food for lots of friends and family? Or small plans with quiet times or no plans at all.
Whichever way you spend the time, I hope it is stress free.

This is where I say I am going to try harder next year and blog more often but we all know that I will stumble in and out with no schedule or plan.

Don't forget to pat the dog.


  1. Happy Christmas Jodie. Enjoy the holidays. I hope to make one or two of your toy patterns over the summer.

  2. Lovely dog!

    It is nice to see a real, no bullshit, sewing room. If anything, mine has less floor currently visible.

    Best wishes for Christmas and the new year.

  3. you should really train the dog to do the tidying. tie I duster to his tail at least.

    Rest well. Blog about muddy puddles etc.

  4. Hope you are fully recovered soon. Best wishes for Christmas and the new year.

  5. Happy Christmas Jodie. Wishing you a speedy recovery xx

  6. Merry Christmas Jodie. Love your blog and your way with words. You never fail to put a smile on my face. Hope the surgery recovery is over soon and you are back in that craft room before long. Cheers Kathryn. PS Thanks for the great froggie eyes.

  7. Awesome pic. Love a real photo.
    Merry Christmas and all the best for the new year. Hope your recovery gains some speed.

  8. Do look after yourself, Do what you need to do to get back on your feet. Use this time to read and get lost in book, re read a favourite or try someone new, Lose yourself in some music and dream. Much love always.

  9. Get well, be happy, kiss Flinn for me :)

  10. Wishing you a speedy recovery and a lovely holiday!
