Jumping back in......

(Crazy photo of me taken on Christmas Day 2010 by master 8!)
'Hi everyone' and a 'Happy (belated) New Year!'. It has taken some time to get my head around getting back into it after such a wonderful break. I fell into an absolute heap at the end of last year, so decided to not touch the sewing machine or the computer for 6 weeks while the boys were on holidays. Now that they are back at school, it's time to get cracking with a new year!!!
I must announce the Pay it Forward winners from last years post (below)
1. Marilyn
2. Lore
3. Alison
4 Purple Pam
If you can email me ( kathryn(at)ourshabbycottage(dot)com ) your addresses as soon as possible I will have a suprise coming your way!!!
Good on you girls, gifts will be flying their way around the world soon!
My sewing room is in a horrible mess, I just shut the door on it last year, now it's time to deal with it.
Be back soon with a more interesting post....

LOL!!! love the picture.
Apparently 10 mins of jumping on a tramp is like jogging for 30 mins!

Hi Kathryn!
Sorry for my late reply to your comment.
Yay now I get to make you something nice! I have no idea what I'm going to do, but I have a little while to think of it anyway.
Hope you had a nice break, look forward to seeing what goodies you come up with this year!
