Hello to my friends in blogging land it's been too long but so much as happened. My last blog way back in September was a really happy occasion my son's wedding............September 17th my D in L started her phased return back at school but  came home at lunchtime to find their kitchen on fire!! They had gone out left dishwasher on and it had caught fire, the kitchen door was open so.......smoke damage everywhere. From then until 20th December they have been living in the premier Inn in town, coming to me for meals and me doing all their laundry, so no time for much computer.

But they are in now and we got together to let the new Year in with a 'real bang', couldn't wait to kick out 2013!!and I'm so looking forward to this year.

I've had a lot of me time this holiday plenty of crafty things.
I started my Song of the seasons sampler again, I hadn't stitched a great deal but just didn't like the WDW linen so I've changed to a Sparklies hand Dyed evenweave.

I've got a couple of crochet projects, I've just started a Drop in the Pond lap blanket

When I visited the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching show in November with my friends Kath  and Michelle I came across a stall called Hooked by design and she had some beautiful things, not cheap but I just couldn't resist this one, a granny square bag, here's a few of my squares

And finally my new Year crafty resolution and one where I might need some of you help and advice!!!
 I want to learn to quilt as there's a lovely new shop opened in my village called The Oh Sew Sweet shoppe. There's a little corner of lovely sweeties but the rest of the shop downstairs is full of material and quilting things. Upstairs is the room where she is doing workshops/classes. I've been to one to make a will see my effort below, I was quite pleased with myself. I've also bought 3 fat quarters of material to start a project but it has to be easy so if anyone of you reading this has any ideas I would love to hear them. Hopefully I will be attending more classes throughout the year.
So a happy new year to one and all
