What a week the past one has been. It seems like forever since we came home from our beach holiday - so much has happened.
Of course Monday saw the sale of our business that we have had for 12 out of the last 14 years. It's a strange feeling indeed not to have to think or worry about anything to do with that anymore. We still have our smaller shop and BJ has been busy getting everything on track and organised for it. I on the other hand have been chained to my desk for what seems an eternity tidying up all the last work that needed to be done for that side of our shop.
So, here we are, with the year stretching our before us with all the possibilities that may be ahead. I am finally feeling just slightly excited! (But don't tell BJ) about the one little shop, so we will give it a go and see where we end up. I'm fairly sure that I will have time to stitch and garden, and have some time with my friends, so I am happy if my routine works around those things.

This is a new little addition to my sewing room ( which I am still to share in this space). BJ gave me the "inspire" for Christmas. My room certainly does that - as long as I can get in there! The little dress was one that I wore as a baby.

This week also saw another change in our family, with our eldest passing his driving test. I didn't think that seeing two boys drive off down the street together with grins from ear to ear could make a Mother feel so sick! I am also quite relieved that he does finally have his licence as it will alleviate much running around for me. Much extra praying to be done this year too!

I am off to my sewing room now, post haste, for some very long awaited fiddling time!

Hi Leisa,
Love your new addition to your sewing room. I know that sick feeling it does get a little better in time.

It looks so serene, the word and the little white dress. I hope you will have more time to spend doing things you love. I can imagine the feeling seeing your oldest drive a car... all those steps you have to take being a parent. You must feel proud of him!

What a good way to start fresh.:) That sick feeling does get better after a while (unless they come home l a t e!)
