I'm Going Into Holiday Mode...

Being the Domestic Engineer that I am, it's not always easy to create 'time off' for myself...
but for a little time either side of Christmas & New Year, I like to at least create a 'change of pace' for myself... I think of it as my Holiday Mode.

This Christmas/New Year season, I'm going to start my Birdhouse Row cross stitch, the pattern I kept from the Travelling Treasures a couple of months ago.... yes I'm going to start on that even before I finish Redwork Noel... but don't worry it will get worked on too!
There'll be sewing for my Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM blocks... maybe a bit of Polka Dot Girls stitching... maybe some hexy's... I'll just do what takes my interest!
I will also be cutting back on my computer time, doing a lot of reading, taking some early-morning beach walks & tackling some jobs at home that need some focus.
And of course there will be time spent with family, wider family & precious friends.
Do you like the sound of my Holiday Mode?!
Do you do something like that for yourself sometimes?

So you won't see me in blogland much, but I might pop in occasionally to check up on you!

 There won't be a CTTY linky for December - so I say thank you to everyone who joined in with me through the year & I hope you'll be part of things again in 2015.

Merry Christmas To You All
Have a Wonderful Festive Season
Thank You For Your Friendship & For Inspiring Me
Stay Safe & Eat Lots

Merry Christmas from me too! I love the sound of your holiday mode but mine is going to be rush, rush, rush this year as we are cooking etc and hosting xmas day. Then it will be relax for a few days before we are back into the normal daily grind lol. Love the look of the green stitchery too. Such a lovely christmas colour.

I just love the look of that birdhouse row. Your holiday sounds lovely. I tend to take a few days every couple of weeks when I just read and drink tea.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I love collecting all the free Boms but this year I have a pattern in mind to buy from Lori Holt. She does cute applique quilts. Since I gave away a swag of Christmas decorations I think it would be good for me to join in CTTY next year. I have lots of decoration patterns waiting to be made. Enjoy you break.
Cheers,
Val
