First day

Ah, a new year! I hope you enjoyed your holidays. I certainly enjoyed my little unannounced break; it's amazing what you can accomplish when you don't blog for a week or two!

We spent our holidays mostly with friends, which I always enjoy. Since swearing off holiday travel a number of years ago, we've found that New York is really the perfect setting for a terrific Christmas, and our tradition seems to have evolved into a very low-key, relaxed celebration. With virtually no new year's celebration at all, although I can never resist vowing to take a photo every day at the start of the new year. I don't last more than a week, usually, but I've vowed to try again...

Tsia still enjoys dabbling in photography, herself. We were at the playground this afternoon, enjoying a bit of spring (!) weather, and I was flipping through the photos on an old memory chip in the camera (I found it under the rug about a month after I lost it) only to come across this glamourous shot. Pretty much the same sight as a photo she took about three months ago, poor kid. Mommy hard at work, fretting over the details on her pattern instructions.

But the pattern testing results have been trickling in and our print deadlines are just two weeks away, so the end of the first round is in sight. Hurray! You know what they say about all work and no play. I'm ready for some play!


  1. I'm glad your break has been productive. I know I still owe you some photos.

  2. So bummed that I missed the testing opportunity - the patterns look great and I love the Oliver + S site. If you ever need "novice" testers to see how easy to use the patterns are, give me a shout!
