As January draws to a close

Amazingly tomorrow is the last day of January, a whole month of 2015 has passed already. It's been a busy month one way and another.

The month started off with us hosting a New Year Drinks Party at home - a great night with a house full of friends. We've been to friends for dinner and had friends at ours. A good friend of mine has had quite a serious operation but is very well, I've been visiting most days which has been great sitting chatting and drinking coffee. I've had coffee dates with a few other friends too and some lovely meals out with Hubby. We've had a full day in London visiting The France Show, sat quietly watching the birds in the garden for the RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch and booked our June holiday. Phew it certainly was a busy month - you can read about our trip to London on my other blog Aimetu's.

I have been stitching too and started a new rotation for 2015 - it's gone really well all of January. I have joined Jo's Gifted Gorgeousness and Mel's Stitch From Stash 2015 but although I have been stitching I have not yet been able to share very much. However February will be a month of reveals as the two exchanges I've done have Open Days then and I will be able to reveal a gift I've stitched.

I have been keeping up with my UFO and Parlour stitching on Needlecraft Haven. My Drawn Thread October is looking good and Santa's Stocking Store now has a wall and a few windows.

My February stitching will be focusing on finishing my two projects above, finishing the January Monthly Challenge, finishing my Joy ornament for my church tree and if I have any spare time (hee hee) I'd like to get some finishing done as I have a few pieces stitched but not finished.

I hope January has been good for you too, even if it has gone by so quickly. Thank you for calling by :)
