Hello Holidays!

Even though we have been on holidays for about two weeks now, it only feels we are really on holidays now as this time tomorrow we will hopefully somewhere between Katherine and Darwin. We are spending a few days in Delightful Darwin before flying out for ten days in Beautiful Bali. So I have put the cover on the sewing machine. The machine must have wanted an early holiday as yesterday afternoon my free motion quilting foot broke, lost its spring, kept catching on the fabric seams, not gliding along. So looks like a new foot from Darwin Spotlight! I used my sewing time to start cutting fabric for a new table runner from my new book. It felt real funny cutting from a pattern, usually I just cut.... Anyway, its ready to go for after the holidays!

Happy New Year dear blog readers. Do you make resolutions? I try to..... this year I am going to try and reply to comments. I read every one and think "cool!" and then move onto the next email. Time to hit reply before next. I have also signed up for Rachels Reading Challenge. To read 13 books for the year. Any book you like on any topic, no kids picture books though! I thought with two weeks on a real holiday stretched out in front of me, lazing by the pool, I'll be able to plough through a few! First one selected is Death Comes to Pemberley, a spin off from Pride and Prejudice. I have read it before, but I have just finished listen to a podcast of Pride and Prejudice, lets keep the story line going!

Another P&P spin off! I'll add it to the list for when I've finished "Mary Bennet". Have a great holiday!

Death Comes to Pemberley is a great book. That was my summer holiday read last year. Are you going to blog all your books?

Have a great, great holiday.
