Greetings from the land of DownUnder…

kanga greetingsHello everyone, well it’s that time of year again & I’m sure, like many of you, been taken a little by surprise as to how quickly the year has flown…

It’s been a while since my last post, months in fact so, this is a little fill-in for those of you who have been wondering where the heck I’ve been…

Well, firstly, I’ve had some health issues, both physical & emotional, which I hope are behind me now so I’ll be able to focus on creativity rather than being the ‘super cranky pants‘ that I’ve become over the past few months. Secondly, my dear husband & I are in the process of selling our house to downsize & hopefully that will come to fruition very soon… House selling has got to be one of the more stressful things in life &, no doubt, the major cause of most of the emotional charge I’ve been under of late… my promise to myself for 2013 is to ‘take each day as it comes & count my blessing more often’… Hmmm… let’s see how that goes??

So, for starters… I’d like to thank each & everyone of you for your wonderful support throughout the year; your lovely emails & comments, your sometimes challenging questions to keep me on my toes & the many sales that hearten & encourage me to keep going… I have some new pieces that I will post in the New Year, as well as new tutorials that I’ve been working on & hopefully finalise soon. I’ve also been offered a new contract for another book so, 2013 is looking to be  full of exciting new creative challenges.

Here’s wishing you all a happy & safe holiday season & all the very best for 2013…

  2. I’ve had issues this year too, so I sympathise. Let’s hope next year is better for both of us! Enjoy settling in to the new house 🙂

  3. Renate,
    I’m sorry to hear you’ve had issues – just think how ridiculously well you will feel, when you are better (be careful, though… I felt so well after being ill that I almost signed up for Michelle Bridge’s 12 week Body Transformation course! Now that was a lucky escape!!! I often think fondly of you when I pick up my free form work (my boys call it my “hippy feral stuff”!). I was blown away when I first found your book in our local library – thank you for introducing me to such a lovely calming pastime! By the way, I am a PE teacher and had never knitted or crocheted, but taught myself, so I could free form- thanks again!
