And we're back......

Too much to talk about, or at least rake over, but there was a holiday, Visitors from Australia and life in general.  Hey ho.  Let's just jump straight back in.  Before coming here to write I was thinking about the blog - what it's for, who it's for etc etc.  No real answers, but it fills a need right here, right now, and there's no harm in that.  But one of the joys is the impetus it gives to take photographs.

The sewing room has been tidied (again)  which means there's more head space to actually sew. There is a certain quilt which needs finishing.....

The front is all done but I do need to choose some fabric for the border.  The local fabric shop has a sale on just now, with 35% off all their fabrics, including these beautiful ones.  and local is always good, isn't it?!

It's not all about the sewing though; as there's a new baby on his way very soon, it has been a joy to be knitting extremely small crossover jackets and a cable blanket.  I do love the way knitting allows your mind to wander as you rack up those rows.  It does mean the occasional pulling out, having gone too far ....

Hopefully it won't be such a long gap before blogging again,
