Trust The Magic of New Beginnings ♥

I hope you have had a fantastic Christmas and New Years! We had a wonderful time celebrating with family and friends and now we're enjoying the slow, gentle rhythm of the summer holidays :)
A fresh new year offers many possibilities and while I'm not a resolution maker, I have filled my journals with new ideas and projects to bring to the blog during the year.
One of the things I want to share more of, is the daily "behind the scenes" happenings in my sewing room and kitchen. I get so caught up in the finished product that I forget to share the steps that got me there. I know this interests a lot of you, so its something I will be more aware of as I work.
My monthly mini quilts will resume at the end of this month and the first one is going to be scrappy, fun and paper pieced and I have a little sneaky peek:
Initially, sewing in my new room felt a little odd and I couldn't seem to find anything even though I was the one who set the room up. I'm now starting to feel more at home and enjoying sewing in my new space. I'm planning on giving you a tour of my new room but I'm waiting for one super exciting new addition........I'm off to buy a new sewing machine next week YAY!
My Pfaff has been my workhorse for the last ten years and she rarely skips a beat but it really is time for her to retire. Before Christmas I was at the sewing shop buying a new chair and whilst I was there I fell in love with a machine. I've read every review and article I can find in relation to it, I've downloaded its PDF manual and researched its features and on paper, its the perfect machine for me. I'm looking forward to a demo and a bit of a play with it next week when the shop re-opens, to see if we are a good fit :)
I hope the first few days of 2018 have been kind to you and your creative juices have been flowing :). I'm ready for a big year and I hope you enjoy all of the projects I've got planned to share.
Happy New Year :)


  1. Oooh a new machine, how exciting. Hope you two fit well, looking forward to reading your blog in the New Year. Happy New Year to you too. Guida

  2. Hi Rose, If you don't mind me asking, what machine are you looking at. I also have an older Pfaff that is skipping a beat and haven't found another machine that I would like to replace her with.

  3. Yo necesito empezar a creer en la magia de terminar los viejos proyectos, LOL. Mis mejores deseos para tí. Abrazos.


I hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog. I love hearing from you so thank you for taking the time to leave me a message. 😊
