 "Look for something beautiful to photograph every day" 
that's one of blog friend Connie's resolutions and I think it's a very good one to follow.  
Kikki with a beautiful present from friend Mo
 So I am opening my 2013 pages with a photo of KIKKI who has now been with us a month and settled in very well. With Kikki playing a big part in our household I haven't been blogging as frequently, BUT I have some new plans for this year starting with an online workshop ALCHEMY with contemporary embroiderer KAREN RUANE
 I am also determined to learn how to crotchet
  and to continue to learn the art of beadwork.

  I enjoyed the bracelets I made with Brenda at the Bead Shop, Todmorden last year and they made lovely presents
 I wish everyone who has kindly followed my blog a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. We ended the year with 119 followers and over 28k viewings, WOW. I hope you all enjoy good health in 2013 and that you all enjoy everything you do.


  1. Hi Lynn, the pic of Kikki is gorgeous and so is the piece from Mo, it really looks just like Kikki! I thoroughly enjoyed following you in 2012 and look forward to seeing more of your wonderful creations in 2013. Happy New Year to you, my friend! Hugs, Anne x

  2. Hi Lynn - I am amazed, and delighted, at how well Judith captured Kikki's likeness. She is a wonderful artist.
    Your bead-work is lovely indeed and I'm curious as to what this 'Alchemy' will be all about. I'm eager to see what you come up with in this new year, which I hope is filled with love and joy for you and yours.
    Love n hugs, MO :0) xx

  3. Amazing pic of Kikki - brilliant. You sound as if you will be having a very busy, crafty new year! All the best for 2013. x Jo

  4. Happy 2013! Wow-- that clock is really something, isn't it?

  5. such an optimistic post with lots of loveliness to start 2013. Kiki is adorable and I'm sure she has settled because she knows she's in the perfect home and is being spoiled rotten.
    May all your dreams come true and I look forward to seeing the results!
    Love jo x
