Hello 2012!

Whether you've already arrived in 2012, or are just a little behind, I want to wish you all the best for the new year. 2011 was a bit of a mixed bag, so here's hoping 2012 is so much better.

I've been away in the country this week; a little quiet time to rest and reflect on the year just gone. We've visited a few of our favourite wineries for some amazing food and wine. Even the views are pretty spectacular.

We've had some lovely visitors this week, including the very noisy Galahs. The babies make quite a racket!

On Boxing Day I was lucky to spot this furry fellow in the tree outside our cottage. He hung around till night time, then moved on under cover of darkness.

I also finished the binding on Swoon. I'm really chuffed with how it turned out. Pity it's going to be so hot now, I'll have to tuck it away until winter....

I'll be heading home tomorrow, then kicking things off with Bella's Patchwork again. I've got some exciting new markets lined up, and am looking for more opportunities to get out there. If you know of any markets that would have me, I'd love to hear about them.

Happy New Year Kate. I'm glad you had a lovely break away.
Your Swoon quilt looks amazing. It's a pity it will be tucked away until the cooler weather, although with Melbourne that could be this week, lol.
Looking forward to seeing what's happening with you in 2012.

Happy New Year! Lovely views and Swoon is gorgeous. All the markets I know are in Sydney which is probably just a little too far for yuo to travel. ann :-)
