New Year Here We Come!!

Christmas over and a new year beginning! Finally getting all the Christmas decorations down and put away for another year. Here are the resident cats having their last nap on Mr and Mrs Santa's lap.
Have to make a note to make the Santa's new clothes for next year, poor old things...they are twenty-seven years old and still wearing the same clothes, guess it is about time. We had a great Christmas, youngest son gave his friend K her engagement ring Christmas Day so it was pretty exciting, K has two young girls who made our Christmas, so great to have young children around at Christmas with all their excitement. Oldest son and daughter-in law were with us for Christmas Day too with our youngest Grandson who is fifteen, he also enjoyed the company of the girls, the girls kept him so busy he did not have a minute to be bored.
They even got him to lay under the tree with them to get their pictures taken! We were so busy with Christmas markets before Christmas and all my items would sell out at the market and then it was back to the knitting needles working steady to get a few things for the next market, good thing I could fill the tables with my Alpaca yarn, and I sold so much yarn I have to get busy sorting fleeces to take to the mill so I will get it back in time for this coming years markets. I just finished all the back orders from before Christmas and can take a bit of a rest....knitting myself a pair of socks...then get at the fleece sorting. I have a few fleeces already washed up and ready to run through the carder, have to decide whether I want to dye some fleece and then card it or spin it and dye it later...maybe do a bit of each, will be great to get back to spinning again.
