New Year 2024 - Hello, I am ready 💓

There is something calming about the first days of the new year.
I am not really one for resolutions, but I like to have some goals, one way or the other. 
I will not be a better person by the end of this year, or any year, but maybe a bit wiser, who knows.
Priorities will always change, the older I get. Some years will treat us better than others.
I have high hopes for 2024 💓

Chookshed Stitchers 2024 Challenge:

Deana have drawn project #6 for us to work on. That is not mandatory, but when I saw that the #6 is a bag with stitchery and applique (on her list), I thought I could do my #6 too, along with my #1 which have a set deadline. 
My #6 is this stitchery candle mat by Bareroots. A few threads a day do make a difference.

The fridge still contains leftovers from Christmas, so dinner will be very easy today.

Yes, I do love baking - this is bread rolls with leftover grated cheese, chopped leek and a little splash of double cream that needed to be used, diluted in water.  Not to leek-y, but with a little kick.
I freeze the bread rolls and take only what we need out, when we need it. A short thaw in the microwave and it both smell and taste really fresh and good.

Today dinner will be chicken soup and bread rolls

We have got a lot of snow - I am happy I do not have to go out today.
You'll find me in my sewing room.

Have a lovely day where you are 



  1. Enjoy your stitching! I'm glad you're blogging more.

    Your rolls sound delicious. We've been eating leftovers also so I made a new meal yesterday, split pea soup with the ham bone from Christmas that I had stuck in the freezer. I also baked a loaf of fresh whole wheat bread, delicious!

  2. soup and bread rolls sound good - I have pumpkin yeast bread in the freezer already sliced so I take out just what is needed.

  3. Soup and bread rolls sounds good, especially home made. Your stitching is so pretty.

  4. I like your statement of just a few stitches a day adds up. I need to put that into action myself.

  5. Cute candle mat...chicken soup and bread rolls with snow outside sounds very cosy...
