Happy New Year and all that!

Well, 2010 is here which is particularly scary when I think back to when I was younger, contemplating my age come the millenium and here we are, another ten years on.  Yikes!
So, due to a Christmas lay-off, (bah humbug), I had a full 3 weeks off in which to complete a stack of book and crafting projects.  In truth, I achieved nothing much from my 'to do' list.  Instead, I dedicated my time to mostly relaxing with a few odd projects thrown in for good measure.  I made an 'any way up' fish, an octopus and a camper van - all out of felt, I also started knitting a sun dress and a hat but won't finish them any time soon!
On the up side, (and considering this is a blog about childrens books, not crafting which I leave in Jenny's far more capable hands), my Christmas books seemed to go down well and I beamed with pride when watching them being opened on Christmas day.  Ruby, who's 2, described my book as 'good'.  This is a big stamp of approval as she finds rather a lot of things either 'rubbish' or 'boring'.  Happy days :)
I had intended to get stuck in to my next book about Lenny but have once again sidetracked myself by booking 2 weeks in Egypt at the end of this month, (it seems 3 weeks was not enough time off for me)!  The coming weeks will be devoted to skirt and dressmaking with a touch of bangle shopping thrown in.
Random photos of things I'm working on will be posted soon in lieu of anything even remotely book-like being carried out!
Hope you all had a fabulous festive season!
