Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!
Here's my traditional look back at some of my favourite posts to appear on my blog during 2012...This post took a while to put together to include all the links, so I hope you enjoy the look back...
Changes made at home...
And at my shop.

I made lots of new items for the Vintage & Handmade Textile Fair...

And found treasures at the flea!
It was also the month our daughter left for New Zealand.

Me and my teddy bear.

Spring cleaning! 

A mini-break in Poole.

Before another fair.

Garden time...

And a photo-shoot for Pretty Nostalgic magazine.

Wonderful Trevoole.

And more from my own garden.

We celebrated a special little one year old's first Birthday.
And a family holiday was spent in North Devon.

Busy as ever sewing...

And treasure hunting.

Textiles in our home.

And a spot of cooking.

A truly memorable month for us - We worked very hard to create a wedding day to remember for our middle daughter.

Then there was some 'recovery' time in Cornwall!

A visit to Mothers.
And things began to get festive at my shop.
We visited the Christmas Market in Bath. 
And decorated our home for the season.
A busy year, much of which was taken up by wedding preparations when I wasn't otherwise working.
I'm looking forward to the crisp, cold, but shorter days of winter, before spring begins with all its promise...
My thanks to all who have visited my blog over the last year, or have called in at my shop, sent personal emails, or bought from me via my blog. I am grateful for your continued interest and support. 
Wishing you a very Happy New Year - Lets hope 2013 is kind to us all,
Niki x
