It is starting to feel a lot like Christmas around here, with the obligatory last minute trips to shopping centers and their overflowing car parks, postal delivery delays and also some really beautiful Christmas light displays, food preparations and gift wrapping.
It does not leave a lot of time to devote to my sewing and my blog. I am therefore going to take a short blogging break to spend time preparing for Christmas and enjoying seeing in the New Year with family and friends. 2010 promises to be a wonderful year for Red Pepper Quilts, and cannot wait to see how it all works out.

I will be returning on Wednesday, 6 January 2010 with a GiveAway post! Besides it being the start of the new year, there is much to celebrate. Since starting blogging in April this year, I have posted more than 200 posts, received way more comments than I could have ever anticipated, and have had more than 550 followers sign up to follow my blog! Every reason to celebrate and it is going to be worth the wait!
In the process of posting about my quilting journey I have learned so much; about computers, blogging, photographing quilts, sewing, quilting, and sharing information, but best of all I have made some amazing new friends, likeminded bloggers and quilters without whom Red Pepper Quilts would not be the same. Thank you to everyone who has supported me, or stopped by my blog just to see what I have been up to, I look forward to seeing you all again in 2010!
and a Happy New Year
