Things have really been busy for me so far this year, and I cannot see it changing any time soon!!! Thankfully, we had some time for relaxation last weekend. We decided to visit our son and DIL, as well as attend their local Show Ball on Friday night. Our DIL has been very community minded and co-ordinated the Show Princess competition again this year. We had a lovely evening, dancing almost non-stop. It was also a good chance to catch up with her family, as we do not see them often. Now that we have the dancing bug again, we are planning on another outing early in April. Looks like the glad rags are going to get another airing!!!!!
When I signed up for the TAST2012 challenge run by Sharon Boggon, I really hadn't much else planned for the year. Things seem to have changed, and I find myself becoming further and further behind [with everything]. I am progressing with the little quilts for our group's premmie baby gifts, and will hopefully find some time later in the week to try some more needle felting. I am so grateful for the lovely comments and encouragement I received from my last post. Thank you to all who keep cheering me on.
I have also been invited to participate in an event later in the year. I have contributed to this in the past, and will find some time to make and send my wares. You can see a little about it here. The ladies run this event very professionally, and I am really hoping that I'll get down to see it 'in the flesh' this year. I think it's been about five or six years since I've contributed.
The icing on the cake in the scheme of 'jobs for Linda' will undoubtedly be more baby things. Apart from babies arriving in our extended families, we are also to be blessed with one in our immediate family.
Our group is also planning a large raffle later in the year, held in conjunction with the local hall's market day. A new lady to the group has kindly agreed to make and donate one of her dolls. It seems I will be making something 'beautiful' for the doll to wear, and my friend Neitta will be working her magic with a quilt. You can see some of the dolls here.
