Well, it's almost 2103.
The heavy door of 2012 is about to close behind us forever, and in front? Adventure.
At least, that's what I am going to look for.
Our packing up of the house has slowed since Christmas, but it will be back in full swing on New Years Day. We begin our move on January 4th!
Back in the fold is our son, Sam, who after sharing a house with mates for the last 16 months, has decided it's time to move to Townsville and live back with us.
This decision made it necessary to find a larger home, with enough bedrooms, living area, and office space for Mr E and I. God blessed us, and we have signed the lease on a lovely 'tree fronted' home close to the beach. \o/
Whilst lazing through Christmas, I have done a little stitching of a brand new design...
...and continued my dabbling with crochet.
Blossom is almost finished knitting another dishcloth...
...and our reading this weekend was all about ME!
Patchwork & Stitching's Yearbook (Issue 13.11) includes a beautifully written article about my journey from homeschool mum and passionate cook, to stitchery and quilt designer!
The magazine will be in the newsagents next week, so if you've ever wanted to know a bit more about my roots, don't miss it. It also has loads of wonderful projects, as well as two of my own.
I know that those of you overseas have a hard time tracking down these Australian craft magazines, so I think I should have a GIVEAWAY for international blog followers only. OK!?
If you are NOT in Australia, please leave 1 comment below this blog post, and I will randomly choose two winners on January 8th!
One of the doors to close in 2012 was my Elefantz HOME magazine.
At Mr E's suggestion, we have printed up a limited number of Elefantz HOME Cds that will be available for purchase in my Big Cartel shop until sold out.
The Cds hold all 18 issues of the magazine, which contain over 70 original Elefantz designs, stories, articles, recipes, hints, guests...and more!
The complete "Elefantz HOME CD - Issues 1-18" is $34.99 AUD, posted free worldwide.
Once sold, all gone.
You can purchase your CD HERE, but be quick!
Have a safe and happy New Year, everyone!!
See you again in 2013!
