The start of something good

It's a new year!
I have been savouring the creative time I've had in the past couple of weeks and am looking forward to making my mark on 2016.  I want it to be a breakthrough year - so I'm working on a plan to make some dreams come true. 

I've been reflecting on many things, including what I want in life and how to make it happen.  Which brings me to  an article that fits so well with what I've been pondering and one you may also find interesting.  Definitely food for thought!

 One of the many things I want to work on this year, is my photography skills.  Keeping that in mind, when I saw the beautiful photos on Eline's latest post, I was inspired.  I began collecting various bits and pieces from my sewing room to see if I could create a pretty collage to kick off a New Year of creativity.   Here's what I came up with.

Amidst the various treasures pictured above, are special pieces that belonged to my paternal great-grandmother.  I credit her with planting the seeds, then nurturing my love of sewing and needle crafts  - which those vintage pieces of hers represent to me.  It seemed fitting to begin the New Year with such good memories of joy and excitement for sewing that began in my childhood, thanks to Gram.   2016 - here's to the start of something good!


  1. What a delightful photo Katherine! I love all the details and vintage items you have included! I have some of those Newey hooks and eyes. My packet is red and blue; it was my mothers!

  2. Hi Katherine! Your collage is really beautiful! There are lots of treasures and cuties! Good Luck for the new year! x Teje

  3. An interesting "article". Gee...and I thought all I had to do was wait. You know the saying..."Good things come to those who wait"...still waiting. LoL. I wish you success in whatever dream you are chasing right now. I love all your vintage things. I have many of them myself from the past generations. I especially like your first photo! The angle is great.

  6. That collage is gorgeous - that picture should be your desktop picture! Here's to a great 2016 - what it has in store for us, will be revealed over the next 52 weeks :D

  7. Your collage is so lovely. I hope you print it out and frame it for your sewing room. I hope 2016 is a wonderful year of creativity for you.


Go ahead...say something! Got a question for me? Ask it! I can't wait to hear from you... so start writing... and thanks in advance for letting me know you're sharing in my online adventures. Hugs and happiness to you!
