Well the Christmas new year period, buzzed by in a whirl in the Googy household. It just seem to be close and then it was all over. It was a lovely christmas day, quite quiet for me ,which is unusual, as i finished work at 7:30am came home opened the presents with mum and my family then Gadget (DH) and Miss M headed off to my mother in laws, whilst Miss S headed over to Master T family's place and i was supposed to have a sleep. Well cope, Eddie and i went and curled up for a sleep, but i only had an hour as it was hot and it was christmas and i was a bit excited. So I got up put on the christmas music , had a swim in the pool and tidied up ready for my family to all return.
2015 has brought with it many promises for me, i have promised myself that i will shed all those very unwanted kilo's that have slowly crept on over the past few years, so i ve started walking and today i took to the pool doing laps and aqua fitness. i feel great that i am doing something for myself. The photo above was taken on the day i started my walking campaign, pretty nice place to exercise.
i have also decided that i have procrastinated for far too many years and it's time to start my Double wedding ring quilt, i think it has been on my to do list for about 15years. Since this year will see gadget and i celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary i think it would make an amazing gift to us both.
Since packing up the nest, because Miss M has moved back home, i realised how many projects i have on the go and how many as yet to start projects i have so twenty fifteen will be my year of completing projects i already own. i m already finding this a challenge with the Stitch-a-long providing a huge amount of temptation. i really love that quilt and Anni Downs designs.....
i am currently working on this table runner from Hatched and Patched i already have the piecing done and am just plodding along with the appliqué.
however this Month is Margaret Sampson George month for me and i am dedicating the whole month to working on my MSG quilt, it has been lulling in the background and i really need to get back to it, i will provide more photo's next post of my work so far.
i am also promising myself more time on here, on my blog. Last year i really moved away from blogging, in the beginning it was a bit of a conscience effort as i wanted to spend more time creating things then surfing the net. but i have really missed blogging and the interaction with all my friends in Blog land, so look out girls
. . . . I'M Back . . . . .
