away for the holidays

In case I forgot to mention it already, I will be away visiting my family for the holidays. It's going to be a wee bit crazy, since there are a lot more relatives coming than I originally thought. Seems that everyone wants to meet my husband, and my niece and nephew who were both born this year. My husband is petrified, having never participated in a big family Christmas celebration. I promised we would go walking, snowshoeing, or skiing whenever he was feeling overwhelmed. Now I just hope they have as much snow as here!

I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone, since it's been at least two and a half years since I saw most of them. A lot has changed since then, including meeting my husband. I hope I don't lose my voice, having to tell everything to each person! Both sets of my grandparents will be there, and I hope to spend lots of time with them. They are all getting quite old, and are not in very good health. I'm so glad I have lots of good things to tell them.

Anyway, this does mean that my Etsy shop will be closed from the 18th to the 28th of December. You can still buy patterns and books from my Lulu shop, though. I am hoping to have a couple new patterns for early January, and other stuff to update my shop, so don't forget about me! I may blog one or two posts while I'm away, if I have anything really fun and exciting to share.

I wish you all a lovely and fun holiday, wherever you are! *hugs*
