Happy Holidays!

Well I am back from the states and slowly recovering from the holidays. Didn't realize how tired I was until I woke up in my own bed with a very angry cat staring me in the face and a persistent terrier throwing himself against the bed demanding his morning walk. It is good to be home.

I didn't get to travel as much around New England because of snow...lots of snow! I did get to Scituate which is where I took the photo above of the lighthouse. It is one of my favorite towns in Massachusetts. The photo below is the view towards the lighthouse from the town pier.
I didn't get any sewing done at all. At one point during a lull in the storms I did venture out to a yarn store and pick up a crochet hook and some yarn just to have something to do with my hands! You can only make so many batches of cookies before you need a fabric/craft fix!

I also stayed home to spend time with my Mom. She turns 88 this year! I think she liked having the Christmas Eve party at her house again this year. It is easier for her than traveling to one of my sisters's houses. The photo is of her and her great-grandson Kai sitting together on Christmas Eve.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and a preparing for a wonderful New Year!

Lovely photos. I imagine it was bitterly cold along the coast though. Glad your trip went well and that you are safely back in England.

What a nice photos! And what a very handsome mother you have. She doesn't look her age at all!
Pretty hair, nice clothing. I would be proud of her, as I think you are.
All the best wishes for 2008!!!

Love your photo of the lighthouse. I had a roommate from Scituate when I was in college. It's a lovely town.

I didn't realize you had come back to New England for Christmas. You did experience quite a bit of snow while you were here.

Happy New Year!

Welcome back! I was worried about you traveling during the busy holiday season, glad you made it safely. (no sleeping in airports while the storm rages...) Did you do any fabric shopping at all? Happy New Year!

Love the lighthouse photo.

Glad you're home again, safe and sound. It's nice to travel and visit with friends and family, but it's always good to get home again isn't it?

Happy New Year!
