At Last I'm Back.


At last, I am up and running again.
 I won't go into details but I have a new computer and
have a faster (supposedly!) fibre optic broadband so I should now be super efficient.
Nice idea but don't hold your breath will you.

So many things have happened since I last spoke to you 
that this post would turn into a novel
if I went through them all now.

So here are just a few of the highlights.

A trip to the American Museum at Claverton ,Bath
to see the Kaffe Fassett exhibition 

and have a 2 day workshop with the wonderful
Janet Bolton.  She is one of the nicest ladies
I have ever met and the workshop was a real dream,
So relaxed and was part of the Bath Summer School
programme of events.
I would love to show you
some of the photos I took of the workshop
 but a couple of the ladies
there weren't happy about being put on the internet
so instead just a couple of photos from the exhibition.

Including the sample wall which I think is a fabulous idea.
Kaffe knows that the first thing any needle person wants to do
is grab hold of the fabric so he had a collection of samples so 
you could have a good old nose at the back.
Makes you feel a to happier about your own work I can tell you.

Of course there has been
Plenty of time at Cromer watching the sunset and spending time with 
my children at the Surf life saving club.

We have had some wonderful sunsets this year.

Short breaks with my Brother in Bradford on Avon, 

My Son on the Gower peninsular in South Wales

and of course the fantastic poppies at the Tower.

I have bought one of these to remember my Great Uncle
Herbert and Guy's Great Grandfather both of whom 
where killed in the Great War (WW1).

We both found the experience very moving and were so very glad we 
made the trip down from Norfolk.

So with a week in Somerset and a holiday in Madeira 
and Rugby at Twickenham  last weekend
that about brings you up to date with my many and varied
 travels while I've had my time away from blogging.

Next time I will try show you some of the projects I have managed 
to complete over the last couple of months although I also am going on a trip 
to the country living fair with my daughter  this week so might tell you about that instead.

We really need a nice cup of tea and a good old natter don't we.
Hope you are all well and 
see you again soon.

It's good to be back.



  1. Welcome back. Looking forward to getting more posts now.

  2. So lovely to have you back, not that I'm the best blogger in the world at the moment. It looks as though you have had a lovely time whilst you've been away, as one would expect from a crafty blogger! If you go to the country living fair this week, see if you can spot my stocking, I made it specially for their competition. Don't leave your next post so long...

  3. Yes my dear i 'am very glad you are back . We are past due for a good 'natter' as you say. :) Hugs! deb

  4. I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.


  5. 'Tis lovely to have you back in the land of blog. This post is filled with lovely photos. Love, love those poppies. They look quite spectacular en masse!
