Bit late to the party......

but the tour came through our small town on its last leg in the UK and it was AMAZING! All the schools were shut and even though it was a Monday, I think most people must have had the day off.......the crowds were enormous.

A year off from blogging for no particular reason. I regret it a bit because its a nice diary of events but hey ho!

Christmas came and made and given.

One child started her dream job in the corporate world (scares the hell out of me!) and the other just finished uni and is job hunting.....not an easy task at the minute.Where have those 3 years gone!

bit of embroidery...well a lot

still playing with fabric .....I took the plunge and bought my very first sewing machine....up to now its been a 25 year old Brother, belonging to Sis.
Its a Janome 8900...I call it the beast and we're still getting to know one another.

a bit of hand sewing  for a  quilt along I'm taking part in on Facebook with Brigitte Giblin.

 and that's the spot where most of the hand sewing takes place.... when the english summer allows that is.

I've enjoyed reading all the blogs I like as always, ........its a great community  x


  1. So lovely to see a post for you!
    Looks like you have been as busy as ever creating lots of gorgeous items. Love the cushion and the red and white work.
    Well done to your daughter landing her dream job, I hope something just as perfect turns up for your other daughter too.
