Welcome to 2013

Happy New Year to all my followers and readers - I hope your Christmas was enjoyable, and that the new year will be a happy and creative one for you.  I'm hoping it will also be a bit more creative for me as well.  The reason for my lack of creativity is shown below .... the construction of our new house, built by my hubby with me as labourer, as well as some employed labour hire too.  If you look closely to the right of the photograph you'll see my little studio buried in the middle of the construction site (green door).
The work has been hard especially in the heatwave we've just had, and I won't be sorry to see it finished. The next step is the roof and then hopefully everything else will happen quickly after that and life can go back to normal. As if building this isn't enough work for us, I had a disaster in my studio to contend with. During the winter storms rain got in through the door and seeped under my beautiful jarrah flooring, buckling and twisting it, so we've had to have all the floor ripped out and had it tiled. 
Now the house is full of my clutter, and I'm waiting for the floor to be completed so I can move everything back in and have a clean up.  Its very hard to be productive in all this upheaval. So to keep my hands moving I've been doing some simple stitchery work in the evenings, but they're itching to get into more exciting stuff, so stay tuned, I haven't forgotten you all and will be back as soon as I can with more interesting things to share with you.
