Blogging Monday is here again Folks

Now I know I am getting older, things are taking more time than they did a few years back my brain is willing although leaning towards memory lapses now and again but I never get as much done as planned, start the week on a Sunday evening with a 'To Do' list reading like War & Peace come Saturday does not look much better. Do go off at a tangent on occasion and can take some time getting back to the straight and narrow course so not as much as I would have liked to show, however 2 more tote bags, 1 tidy bag, kimono shoes to match the baby gift posted last week for a friend, just waiting for her to produce said offspring and a birthday card for BIL.

Back to what I love a crazy quilted silk Victorian door hanging in colours of the sea, blues, greens, greys, and cream with shell charms, flowers and beads. Machine embroidery stitches and lace. Although small these pieces take time but enable me to be more creative and love the randomness of the patchwork.

Everything bought for Shiloh's arrival on Tuesday, well almost all off to collect the baby gate reserved at Homebase tomorrow, some more grub as Golden's have a penchant for food. Builder almost finished the puppy run but will not be able to use fully until Thursday, at least the badgers stayed away had visions of them ploughing their way through half set concrete. Contract received and insurance through from the kennel club.

Blog started for Shiloh so anyone can follow his tails from Tuesday.

I want to introduce my very good friend Kim from Apple Crafts she is based in Lincolnshire and starting some new card making classes soon. Kim is a wonderful lady , very patient and an excellent teacher, if you are in the area and would like to learn new techniques plus have fun check out her website for more details.

Hobby and Craft Forum is still looking for new members, we have a directory to advertise your business, morning coffee to pass some time away and more, whilst small we are perfectly formed and have some big ideas for the future.

  16. Hi Caroline,, I am a little late for show and tell this week. I love the tidy bags. Especially that fabric. Its so pretty and modern too. I can see it appealing to alot of age groups. The tiny shoes are so cute. The crazy quilt door hanger is cute too! I had a look around at the card site too. Very pretty.
    I cant wait to see whats next. I know you must be having a great time with Shiloh!
