Just a Quickie

I have been so so busy but thought I would just give a quick post to let you know that I am in the land of the living still.

I had a wonderful day yesterday when my friend Nicola came for a visit. We had a fun morning at my house and then went off to our friend Colly's for lunch. We ended up spending the rest of the day at Colly's laughing and joking and sharing stories. No stitching from any of us which considering the amount I still have to do before Christmas was naughty but nice (just like the cream cakes).

Tonight I have been to see my darling grandson in his school play and that was another non-stitchy but very enjoyable time.

As I have no stitching pictures I thought I would show you some flowers. Despite the frost and cold these are flowering outside my door and these pictures were taken yesterday.












Please accept my sincere apologies for not visiting blogs over the last few days. I know you are all beavering away at your stitching projects just like me and I will catch up as soon as I have my pressies finished.
Also thank you for visiting me and for taking the time as so many of you do to leave a little comment, it is really appreciated.
Hugs
may your frogs stay in their ponds

Hi Helen,

Glad to hear that you are having fun and that all is well.

Not a problem as it's that time of year!

I haven't been able to update my blog as DD took the camera which has all of my pictures on it off to a camp where she is volunteering this week. Sigh...

It's nice to see a bit of colour through the horrible winter weather.

Beautiful flowers. I'm afraid that I have a foot of snow on the ground so I don't see much of anything blooming around home. I love your Xstitch bird you used as your header.

Helen, I will look for that designer for you. I can tell you that it was the most expensive pattern I've ever bought, but I just fell in love with it. I should still have it somewhere. The designer is on the tip of my tongue.

Lovely flowers, it is so nice to see them since all I have is snow and dreary overcast sky at the moment. Good luck with getting everything done you have going on. Tis the season to be easily overwhelmed, so make sure you don't over do.
