A Little Holiday

Hey, everyone! Just wanted to let you know I’ll be posting a little less over the next week or so. I’m going to take a bit of time off to enjoy the holiday season. (I know, time off – very surprising! I love what I do so it’s hard to stop and take a break.)

To be honest I’ll still be working on and off during the holidays, just not writing posts or checking emails. Orders will still ship over the holidays, in case you were thinking of treating yourself to a new pattern this Christmas! (Except for December 26th and 27th, on those two days there is no mail pick-up. Orders will resume shipping on December 28th. So they’ll still get out to you as quickly as they can!)

this is the festival of lights at van dusen gardens, one of the things I’d like to do this Christmas! Doesn’t it look romantic? Mr Sewaholic and I can sip hot chocolate while we walk and admire the beautiful lights in the garden.

I hope you all have a wonderful, wonderful holiday season, full of good food and good company. (And maybe some sewing goodies under the tree.)

Speaking of sewing goodies, are you still searching for holiday gift ideas for someone who sews? Here’s what I asked for last year, and here are all the lovely sewing gifts I opened last Christmas morning. This year I’m not asking for much, gift-wise. I just want to take a bit of a break, knit and read, spend time with family and friends, and enjoy the lights and sounds of Christmas while it lasts!

See you in the new year for the Minoru Sew-Along and more!

    Merry Christmas Tasia! Enjoy the hot chocolate and the lights and the relaxation time. Sounds a lot like what I have planned this year myself. :)

    Enjoy your well deserved break!!

    • Tasia December 21, 2011 at 9:55 am #

      Thanks! I will! I might even try to sew something purely for fun over the holidays!

    Ooo, those lights look so festive! I actually already did take a look at your Christmas gifts post a few weeks back when my sister was asking what I’d like, so here’s hoping the tailoring book is waiting for me. Have a great holiday, Tasia, and congrats on a great year for Sewaholic Patterns!

    • Tasia December 21, 2011 at 9:55 am #

      Ooh, yay! I hope you get the tailoring book. It’s a great resource. Even if you don’t use most of the techniques right away it’s fascinating to read about what’s inside a properly-tailored jacket! (Or it is for me, anyways.)
      Hope you have a great holiday too!

    Hi Tasia, Happy Holidays!!! Enjoy your break and I look forward to a fabulous Sewaholic 2012. Can’t wait for the sewalong.

      Thanks Dana! I love it, a Sewaholic 2012. It sure will be, at least for me!
      Looking forward to sewing along with you in the new year too!

    Have a wonderful and well deserved break. Looking forward to many more happy hours sewing along with you in 2012!

    A well earned break. Enjoy the time and savour the season.

    Happy Holidays to you, too, Tasia!

    Happy Holidays Tasia. My selfish-self will be disappointed not to read new posts during a week but you deserve a break after all the good work you’ve done.
    Enjoy the time with your family and friends and see you next year for the sew-along.

    Hi Tasia! I hope you and your family are enjoying a nice and relaxed holiday. I also have selfishly missed your posts this past week or so (I’m stuck at work, and if I’m not able to be at home sewing I like to read about it!). ;) But you totally deserve the break after such a big year for you. Congratulations to all the successes you’ve had with Sewaholic Patterns and I wish you many more in the coming year! I really admire the way you run the company all on your own, and are able to stay upbeat and positive while doing so!

    I’m super-excited to see what new patterns you have in store for us this year, and also to sewing along with you in a couple of weeks.

    Take care – and Happy New Year!
