Welcome to the New Year.

I had an eventful run up to Christmas. On a trip out to deliver my brothers presents I was in a collision with another car, whilst I ended up with minor bruises my poor car alas is no more.
I will always be so grateful to the kind people who helped me by taking me , a stranger ,back to there house , looking after me , letting me use there computer and phone and  giving me coffee whilst I waited for my brother to come and pick me up.
The whole incident was quite an upset and was made so much less traumatic by these wonderful people.

So, no car, and a ton of presents to get to London. I travelled by taxi, train, tube and bus to reach my family with two huge suitcases and two bags.
It was so worth it, I had the best Christmas, lots of wonderful food, wine and the pleasure of seeing the absolute delight on the face of my 3 year grand daughter when she saw that Father Christmas had been and left lots of presents under the tree.

I'm home now, I pick up my new car on Tuesday and will be delighted to be out and about again.

Being house bound has given me chance to do some early spring cleaning to start the New Year.

I'm updating my Etsy shop with a couple of books.

                                                                      Embroidery.

                                                                     and Imagine.

I'm starting on some new projects for 2012, it's going to be a busy year with lots of teaching and some great trips planned. can't wait!!!!

A Very Happy New Year to you all.

Oh no, Angela! I'm so sorry to hear about your accident. But so glad to know that you are okay and that there were good samaritans there to help you out. A car can be replaced but you cannot! I'm sure your family was very grateful to have you with them. You take it easy. Keep creating! Your books are beautiful. That second one exceptionally so! Best wishes and blessings! Tammy

Hi Angela, I'm sorry to hear about your car accident. It's a shame that your car didn't survive but most important is that you hadn't been injured seriously. Being without a car is no fun and I'm happy for you that you'll get a new one next week.
It sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas with your family.
Your books are both fantastic! I couldn't tell which one I like better.
Happy New Year, dear Angela!
Hugs,
Julia

Car crashes are a shocker. It's one of those moments when you realize that safe driving is valuable - that in the event of an accident, it can help protect you and reduce the damage.

It's not a pleasant experience to experience something like that during the holidays. Nonetheless, it's heart-warming to see strangers help you out, no? It does lessen the shock of such a nasty event. Now that you're getting a new car, don't let that accident scare you away from driving. Peace!
