Oh. And January is over. That was quick! Isn't this year flying by?!!!

My girls have been creating 2013 diaries from old books. (Hence the op shopping!) Don't mind my drawn on table in the photos. My grandchildren have so much creativity in them that sometimes it oozes out onto the table. Fortunately, they mostly only feel creative with pencils which means the table is quite easy to clean!
The upcycled diaries are the brainchild of Picklesticks (my Jess). You pull apart a cloth covered hardback book, print up some diary pages, sew them together, rebuild your book, glue it, and da da! New Old Diary!
Having sat by as the girls made their diaries, I think I could make one. It's going on my loooooong to do list. Jess and the grandies go home tomorrow so we will have a bit more making time. Less squish-hugs, but more making time.

|Love this book!|
Although I haven't set any sewing goals yet I am busy working on some life goals I have set for 2013.
I am hoping to be fitter next Christmas so I am walking. Tonight we watched this lovely sunset across the paddocks as we walked. It was a beautiful country scene. Unless you looked to the left.
We live in the heart of suburbia, but just a short walk away from our house there are farms and paddocks. I don't think they'll stay intact much longer, the land must be worth a fortune! So, until it changes, I have a lovely setting to get fit in and possibly lose a little weight. I am busy concentrating on those goals at the moment!
