The last day of 2009 seems as good a place as any to look back on the last year. I'm adding to it slowly throughout the day, it would be a shame to miss something that was important.
We began the year with a visit to the theatre and a promise that we would do it again soon. Of course, the latter didn't happen, but I'm sure we'll do something like it this year. Frankly there was nothing that took the eye, and time sped by too fast to even take the train to town apart from a quick pass through on my way to visit my lovely friend..
February was a busy month, and I have to say that looking at next year's diary (it's the last time I can say that!) the month will be busy again. As usual we went to Textiles in Focus and had a thoroughly good time. Don't forget to make your plans asap if you want to go in 2010. February was also the month that we had the first inklings of something that happened later in the year, but frankly we didn't believe it!
March was a month of teaching and frustration. However out of frustration came a lot of learning and new colours, so there was certainly a silver lining to that cloud. I even managed to do some stitching
April was a month of birthdays, and, of course, Easter.! We saw family, and I continued to teach and dye. No time to rest, but that came in May when we visited our little hideyhole. June was also busy but we all got together for a very special birthday
