I hope you all enjoyed a lovely Christmas.  This year it was a bit of a different celebration for us as we were not at home for the first time in a VERY long time. We went to visit with my parents-in-law and stayed at this beautiful hotel.

The service and food were both excellent and it was nice to see family. However, my own family decided that Christmas dinner at a hotel was 'not the same' so yesterday I cooked Christmas dinner for us here at home!!  I have to admit that part of me was looking forward to being away for Christmas so that I didn't have to cook but, it seems that is not quite how it works!!

We got home on Friday evening and everyone was excited to open the presents we had left under the tree.  We all had some lovely gifts.  One of my particular favourites was this cute little 'Button Heart' kit which a friend sent me.  This box contains everything that I need to make the sweet little heart shown on the front and, I can't wait for a quiet afternoon to get started on it!!

Tomorrow my husband's niece and her boyfriend arrive to celebrate the New Year so there is lots still going on!!  I hope you all enjoy whatever you are doing to celebrate the New Year and wish you all the VERY best for 2014.
