Pardon the dust…

Hi There!

I know it has been a while, things have been busy at Hedgehog Hill.

New Years day is a snowy one so we took a lovely walk. I really don’t think New Years Day is any more special than any other day, it does have the advantage of being a holiday so we do not have to work.

For many it is the time of year for reflection and planning. As I walked, I was reflecting about how much I had enjoyed blogging, and I was planning how to begin again.

We also did a lot of talking about back yard improvements, new bridge over the pond, walkways, lights, and new gardens. We trooped layouts in the snow, all as the big flakes gently wafted down. Yes, a good day for reflection. Shall we go for a walk?

Still a few ornaments left on the outside tree. I loved having a lit tree in the back yard this year!

Time to head back.

Back inside I’ll show you a few things that are keeping me busy. There was a brand new sewing machine under the tree for Mrs Murfin! A Husqvarna Viking Tribute 140C. I love it! Can’t wait to get at a bunch of projects that I have been avoiding as my old machine was being naughty. Remember these?

Now they look like this.

And a piece of bark cloth I have been hoarding became 2 pillows for the couch.

The rest of New Years day will be spent close to the fire, making plans, so many plans.

Until next time, soon I hope.
