Seasons Greetings

Seasons Greetings from Australia ~ Threading My Way

There's been absolutely no sewing or blogging happening in recent times. I've featured and showcased several projects, as well as sometimes updating the Daily Free Tutorial over there in the sidebar, but that's about it.

After 3 stressful months in three different hospitals, Mum is finally back in her own home. It's been a long haul since she broke her hip, but she's made it.

I have no idea what's going on in blog land, not to mention there's a back log of comments to read and respond to. Once Christmas is over, I'll start answering emails and catch up on blog reading.

I've always said that I prefer blogs to social media - there's more substance to blogs. But in recent months, the little time I've spent online has mainly been on social media, in particular, Instagram. Perhaps that's because on Instagram I show mainly pictures of my garden - my happy place. And unlike a blog post, it's quick and easy to upload a photo.

This time of year means different things to different people. For me, it's all about family - a day with the most important people in my life.

We normally spend some time outdoors. This year the prediction is for a hot Christmas Day, so we'll have to get outside early

What we do during the day is not important - being together is.

Whether you celebrate in sweltering heat, or with snow falling outside, I hope you unwrap lots of joy, love, peace and laughter with the people who mean the most to you.

Seasons Greetings - Merry Christmas - Happy Hannukah

Here's hoping I can be more active on the blog next year. I've missed you all. See you in 2019...

... Pam


  1. Hi Pam,

    I wish you a Merry Christmas.
    Hopefully with little stress, nice gifts, love people around you and of course with a good meal :0)
    Good slide and a healthy and new year on top of that :0)...see you soon.

    Best regards Klaudia

  2. That is wonderful news that your mum is back in her own home. May you enjoy a beautiful Christmas celebrating with your family. See you in the new year.

  3. Glad that things seem to be settling down a bit for you. Have a happy and safe holiday!

  4. Have a very Merry Christmas Pam and a wonderful New Year! Glad your Mum is doing better. We all go through tough times. You will return when you are ready to. Yes blogging takes more time, but we all get to know each other better than other social media too.

  5. I am so happy to hear that your Mum is back home! Have a Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy 2019.

    1. Thank you so much, Sheila. I'm a bit late replying, sorry. Happy New Year!

  6. I hope that your Christmas would be enjoyable and may the essence of Christmas remain always with you. Merry Christmas .


  8. I hope you had a Merry Christmas Pam! I've been terrible at reading blogs, all due to Instagram too but I miss it and have reinstalled Feedly on my phone so I can read them again! Looking forward to connecting through blogs more and glad you'll be back at it again :)

  9. I'm dropping by to wish you a Happy and productive 2019 Pam. I hear you on the social media thing. I have returned to full time work (I was headhunted and they made an offer I couldn't refuse), so my blogging time is severely cut as well. Insta is so easy, so go you I say! I love your blog, and it's a constant source of inspiration to me, so I hope you'll update us from time to time. Love, Mimi xxx

  10. Happy Holidays to you too. Still hanging around after all these years.

  11. Happy belated Christmas and New Year! I'm like you, totally behind on all things blogging and sewing... Here's to a much better year this year! xx

  12. It's heartwarming to hear about your journey with your mom's recovery, and your dedication to family shines through your words. Your blog is a refreshing escape, offering a glimpse into your garden oasis and the cherished moments with loved ones. Despite the challenges, your resilience and focus on what truly matters inspire readers to embrace the joy of togetherness. Keep sharing your stories; they bring light to the online world.
