Friday, 12 June 2009
Unfortunately it was not only the computer that kept me away from blogging but lifes little dramas too. Mum was ill, then my dear aunt became very ill and I was taking Mum to the hospital everyday to see her. Sadly she lost her battle for life which has left us all feeling very empty.
On a far more cheerful note, with the computer out of action what little time I did have was spent stitching. Not a lot done for a months work, but progress I can see none-the-less.
So firstly an update on Water Tiger which has had the most of my limited attention
I am now almost half was down the 4th page and I have also done some more on page 5 as I have been working across to join up with the central bit, which was where I started this project.
I also have made quite good progress on EMS Rose Sampler despite the pesky frogs who seemed to delight in visiting every time I got this out recently.
Next week I am hoping to finish the dividing line across the left side and make a start on the next alphabet - the first half of which goes between the two dividing lines. Once that is done pages 7, 8 and 9 will be complete and I will only have three more pages to do. Joining the Crafty Natter UFO night has really helped with this project.
I also have one more card to show you. This is the one I have done for my sister-in-law but as she does not read my blog it is quite safe to show it to you.
I have been trying to keep up with blogs but with little success as I have only been able to read them at odd times in the day. I will keep trying to catch up but you are all so busy and have so much I want to see and read that it is a hard task lol.
I notice during the last few posts that I have had some new readers who have been kind enough to leave comments. However a few of you do not appear to have blogs so I have been unable to come visit you and thank you in person so I want to take this opportunity to both thank you and welcome you to my little world. I just love to get your comments and I really do appreciate them but I also appreciate all those people who just want to read. I know from my tracker how many people do just come for a quick read and I appreciate all your visits too. I just love looking at all the places round the world where my visitors come from. One day when I have the time I will write you a list of the many many countries that my visitors come from. Oooh wouldnt life be perfect if I could come visit you all.
Well its almost 1.30 am and my eyes are beginning to droop. Also my darling grandson is having a stopover this weekend so we will be expected to be up and about by 8am at the very latest so I am going to say goodnight and leave you for the comfort of my bed.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
