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

  6. Hello to the Entire Public, Hello, my name is Janices wallocks from Housto texas.I came to this site to share the good works of the Native Doctor (Dr John).I never believed in love,Money spells or magic until i meant this powerful spell caster when i went to Africa in December last year on a business trip. He is really powerful and he can help you cast spells to bring back love one`s gone lost ,misbehaving,lover looking for some one to love you,Money riches,Winning lotto number, bringing back lost your lover, Bring back lost money and magic money spell for a good job,I`m now happy and living testimony because the man i had wanted to marry left me 2 weeks before our wedding day and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for years ..I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job . So when i meant this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him..At first, I was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 5days time when i returned to Texas, my boyfriend (now my husband,Dr Wallocks) called me himself and apologized that everything had been settled with his mum and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married and my sister who has been sick of cancer was healed..i didn`t believe it cos the spell caster only asked me for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do he did it for me... We are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid,and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better and we became very rich. In case any one needs the spell caster for some help, Email him on this email address:( ......hope he helps you out. Hurry now and contact him now via email address:( .. Thank you very much and i am very happy right now.. Janices wallocks
