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
