A Birthday Present.

I wanted to quickly show you what I made for Barb for her birthday

Well I haven't been as busy as I thought with helping with the decorating, being the youngest of five I sometimes forget that my siblings can be a right pain in the butt!!!
 I won't go into to details but you know that saying 'Too many cooks' Yes well I have decided to leave them to it I ain't getting stressed over it all. I feel sorry for my Mum she can't get away from it!!

Lucy has been poorly today with Tummy ache and vomiting and then she came out in an itchy red rash all over, apparently she has had an allergic reaction to something, I have no idea what. She has had some medicine from the Doctors and she's feeling much better

I've been naughty...

I have had a new start!!
It's the Winter Mandala by Ink Circles, which was featured in the Jan/Feb issue of JCS mag. The Spring Mandala is in the next issue which I will be getting as well.

The colour is not brilliant in this picture.

I will be busy the next couple of weeks, my Mum has been given the keys to her Bungalow, and it needs redecorating all the way through, Luckily she still has her house to stay in whilst we do it for her.

I hope everyone is well and stitching lots!

Talk soon

Miss you Dad!

It is so sad sometimes when you realise you have forgotten the anniversary of someone who died, but it's worse when you realise that the 20th anniversary of your own Dad has past and you didn't remember until the day after, I was only fourteen when he died so I do have limited memories of him, unfortunately they have been tainted by other family members and their version of events and memories of them.
I do still miss him and even though I may not always think of him 24/7 but he is in my thoughts often.
