Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone...hope it is a healthy, happy and productive one for all.
Well despite the very hot weather I have been in the kitchen making chutney and sauce..the plums are ready and I wanted some before the birds ate them all
also the beetroot decided to be ready all at the same time, so now we have jars of happiness!! lol!!
I finally got to do some sewing yesterday..some is secret so can't be shown yet, others are blocks that have wanting attention for most of last year...
now they are sandwiched, quilted and done...such a good feeling!!I have another two to do.
In November I joined a postcard swap group hosted by Sheila...she has some lovely things on her blog, well worth a look...I sent this card on Dec 2nd to Linda and it arrived yesterday in Canada...must have been traveling with Santa...or decided to have a round the world trip.....I am very happy it finally arrived.
I received this card 
from Linda..who also has many beautiful creations on her blog. Love this fabric and Linda's quilting is amazing!!
I am off now to go make friends with the sewing machine!!
Have a wonderful day.

Happy New Year to you too. Glad your postcard arrived safe and sound. I always have a nervous wait until parcels reach their destinations.
