I'm back...

Sorry about the delay with my postings - but as you know I've been a bit busy - just like you.
I'd like to say a huge thank you for all the kind words of support for me and my mum. I'm pleased to say she's had her op and it went as planned. I visited her yesterday and she was comfortable - which I think is really all you can expect at this stage.
I'd thought I'd share with you a few things I've bought over the last few months. First is the beautiful Selvedge magazine - I'm hoping Santa might be bringing me a subscription.

Next is my Quilting Arts - such a beautiful cover. I'm still waiting for number 29 - I'm sure it's got stuck in the post.

And a copy of The Quilter - which you get as part of your Quilter Guild subscription.

And a treat now - 'Finding your own visual language'. Since my course with Brenda I've been more adventurous with the books I've selected and don't look at the ones with just patterns in now. This looks a great book and hopefully over the holiday I'll be able to have a better look at it. Have any of you got this and used it? I'd love to hear how you got on.


Now - I did get rather excited when Santa and his sledge came down the road - I ran out shouting 'Santa - I've been a good girl'. My husband is still laughing about it now.

I'll have to go now to check on my infamous Jamie Oliver Pork goulash - I'm cooking it for our Quilting Christmas party tomorrow night. I had to miss last week as I got a stinking cold - I've got rid of it now and I'm just left with a hacking cough.
Hope you're all OK and not too stressed with the time of year.
Take care.

Ha ha - not too stressed at this time of year! I am having to curb the language when looking at my lists of things to do otherwise Santa won't think I have been a good girl!
Glad your mum has had her operation and is doing well, and I wish you all a good Christmas.

I think we are all stressed and have colds this time of year :) I can't decide which is more stressful - the week before school finishes with all the extra plays, parties, etc to remember and/or attend or the week after it finishes, with the kids home all day!

Glad to hear your Mum is doing well. I've also come down with a stinkin' cold :-(

But we will finally have a new kitchen ceiling by the end of the week.
