Making the way out….
but I couldn't blog like I hoped to.
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas celebrating with family .
Now it's almost that time of the year, when we say Goodbye to the old and ring in the new.I'm happy to see the year go and I'm full of Hope for the New Year.
2013 has been a significant and very eventful year in our lives.
We had some very trying times.We moved thrice ,our relations with the extended family strained, I had to move in with my parents, I had a hysterectomy.....
And oh ,the customs people after messing up a whole lot , finally released our things. It was so chaotic that by the end of it all ,I was beyond caring about the losses we incurred in the process.
Though it seemed like a bad year for us, I have so much to be Thankful for.I will admit that half way through ,I did think we will not make it. But God has been so gracious to us and we got to the end of the year a little wiser and stronger as a family.
It has taught me a lot…about people and the things that matter the most.
On the Crafty side , things were really good. I did not learn any new technique or skill . However,the biggest thing according to me, was writing patterns and publishing it on the blog.
I often make up my own patterns, but don't bother to take notes or write down the pattern. One day on an impulse, I decided to do a photo tutorial , was thrilled to see people visiting that pattern and adding to their favourites on Ravelry. That pushed me to make that tiny little effort and write down the pattern.
I was super excited that a few people actually made my Easy Peasy Snowflake pattern .Thanks so much from the bottom of my heart for trying it out and adding my patterns to favourites on Ravelry. It really means a lot to me.
I leave you with the Collage of things I made in 2013
I also am exploring new apps , for one I'm blogging from mobile blogger on my iPad air , then I made these two collages above , one with pic collage and the other with photo grid .Lil B is my chief advisor in all this .
Happy New Year lovely people.Thanks for sticking on with me. May the New Year be kind to us all.
