Happy New Year!

(Ok so the title is slightly belated...)

I have dubbed this year as The Year of Achievement - no pressure!  I'm being frog marched into joining my local gym as a "if you go, I'll go" resolution to help an anonymous* friend work-out more often.

*Anonymous because they don't want a friend of theirs to know they are going - it's a surprise!

I know that I'm going to be really busy this year so the likely fact is there might not be as much sewing as I'd hope, so this may take a side step into being a "sewing from elsewhere on the internet that is super cool" blog until I get my mitts back on my fabric stash.  I hope you don't think it's a cop-out.  Saying that, I will probably still manage to fit in quite a lot of sewing (I seem to do it without even realising), so there will still be things to see, I'm sure. 

Anyway, to kick off my first post of the year I'm going to link you to my favourite blogger in the entire blogosphere, Cation Designs - and her newest creation to add to her plushie addiction...

Squidney!


Cindy has just got the most incredible talent for sewing everything from plush soft toys to fab dresses and pretty much anything in between (especially if it's geek themed - a woman after my own heart!)

Squidney is like the icing on the cake for me.  Anyone who knows me knows how much I love cephalopods and the sheer scale of Squidney is just inspiring - I am in awe! (I think I might have to totally copy it and make a big green one to keep on my bed!)

I should add that I had the immense luck and pleasure to win one of Cindy's giveaways for some patterns that included...

Some Hippos Exercising!!
(How relevant for my new year's resolution!)

Ok, these will be made this year (I actually feel ashamed that I haven't made them sooner!) and then there will be a photoshoot of them around my house!!

Needless to say, I am incredibly grateful for these patterns but also I would like to say how much I admire Cindy's sewing skills and her blogging style - so you should all go and read her blog as well!!

Wishing you all a wonderful New Year and I hope 2013 is good to you!
