In January, I wrote a blog post but never pushed the `post` button.
February was the month I celebrated my 11th wedding anniversary.
and I found the courage to push that button.
My mother visited in March and Japan was tested to her limit.

Terror came to the streets of Marrakech in April when a bomb exploded in a cafe and we hopped over to the Lakes to celebrate my mum`s big `0` birthday
In May we had the joy of celebrating Zaki`s 3rd birthday, we returned to England and the sadness of having to say goodbye to Granny Anna
June was the month that I had my first giveaway to celebrate my 100th post and finished my first quilt of the year.
In July we went on holiday!
and in August we celebrated my birthday, my husband`s as he turned 40, we fasted and we sweltered in temperatures hitting the mid forties C.
After months of temperatures obliterating any chance of sewing, September brought a new chapter in blogging and I started quilting again. I began my first and favourite QAL - The Across the Seas QAL and started making this quilt top...
...Zaki returned to school
...and I had a giveaway to celebrate my 100th follower!
In October, my mum visited and I finished this quilt which now lives happily in Paris.
November turned out to be my most productive month of the year including another quilt finish...
...and a Christmas tablerunner headed off to Alberta, Canada...
and I was super excited to see it featured in a mosaic on the Fat Quarterly blog`s `Merry Christmas` post here!
December came and went quickly with few blog posts and fewer makes. I visited Paris, came `home` for Christmas and spent the week after Christmas feeling really sick with a stomach virus. I`m better now and looking forward to a new year. A chance to do better and be better.
I may even have a finish to show you tomorrow!
Again, I hopelessly behind. I can`t hope to catch up on a week`s blog reading so please be patient with me if I haven`t been to visit in a while. I will. I promise!
