Time

Hi all,

I guess I should start with a ‘Happy New Year to you all’ and a ‘Welcome to the new look Tea with May’

This is something I planned to do on the 1st January but it seems ‘life’ had other plans for me.

We may only be a quarter of the way into 2014 but a lot has already happened in the Tea with May household.  The impact of ill health has swept through and touched each of us in a huge way.  I am hoping that the change of season is going to bring a change of luck and a new happy and healthy karma to our home and lives.

Now, I may have been quiet on the blogging front but I do have a few little projects on the go which I have been flitting between, depending on mood and feeling on the day.

Here are a few little sneaky glimpses…

Chevrons – Which will eventually become a cute little cushion.

A granny square – Which is gradually becoming a project bag.

And last, but by no means least, a little present for Mothers Day which has to be kept under wraps until after the 30th March so SHHHHHHHHHH!

The plan is to do a post for each of these little project individually once they are complete, which at the speed I’m going at, could be sometime away!

Now I need to go and get some chores done… I still have Christmas presents to post out and many many catch up phone calls to make and emails to write.

Surprises

Hello all,

When I began blogging I was unsure what to expect.  I love reading blogs but would I enjoy writing my own? Would I get be able to handle any feedback (either good or bad)?  Would people even read what I’ve written?

One thought that never entered my head was – Would I make friends?

Yet here I am, 11 posts in and already I’ve made contact with people whom I’m genuinely beginning to care about.  These are people I’ve never met face to face, I wouldn’t know them if I passed them in the street, yet over a very short space of time they’ve nestled themselves a place within my heart.

When I think about this strange (to me) revelation it makes me feel warm inside.  It makes me see that all this is so much more than just words on-screen, crafty projects and cyber chatter.  This is where over tea and cakes we can make friends, grow relationships and together make this huge place we call home seem a tiny bit smaller.

A swap, a gift from an incredibly talented lady who I am extremely pleased to have met 🙂

Take care for now everyone and thank you for dropping by,

Sarah (and of course May)
