Retrospective

Happy New Year to all my readers!
I hope I've managed to visit those of you who have blogs and to leave a comment now and again. To those of you who don't blog but who regularly leave me a comment, Pati from London and Carole from Rossendale in particular, I'd like to say how much I appreciate the time you take to do so. Thank you :o)

It has been such an enjoyable year here at The Quince Tree. I have loved every minute of it. I've especially enjoyed seeing how the changing seasons affect my life. I hadn't realised how season-driven my life was particularly in the kitchen. I am so looking forward to 2011 and all its blogging possibilities although I'm slightly worried that I might have run out of things to show you. Let's hope not!

 I have made a few samplers to illustrate the past (almost) year here at The Quince Tree.

First this year's crochet. 



A bit of nature.


And some food :o)


And finally a general round up of the year -a picture for each month.


See you in 2011.
