Last day of the year.


Here we are on the last day of 2011 and I can honestly say its been one of the best years I've had, which is not what I expected. (There have been a couple of 'downers' but we won't dwell)
The video below (I recommend turning the sound off) illustrates most of it.
Days out, 2 exhibitions and a new body of work, meeting bloggers, my 60th Birthday, an attempt at veg growing, many brooches, Ireland, Dorset, Sussex, Greece, 3 craft fairs and finally Hetty's arrival.


The year seems to have flown by as quickly as the video.

With thanks to Domesticali for pointing it out on her lovely blog.





And a Happy New year to one and all. Hetty is bathed ready for 2012.

I just love Hetty, even when she's wet! I'd love to see the video too but it tells me it's private. All the very best for a good 2012 Jackie, I enjoy your blog and admire your work - keep it up.
