Welcome to a new year girls not sure what I would do without you lot around.
The sun is shining but there is a chill in the air. Having my eyes tested this afternoon but that is all for today so want to try and catch up with some challenges well thats the plan.

Hello - hope your weekend went well.

Hope your eye test goes ok Becky.  

Been trying to make sense of my craft room this morning but not had much success.  Not much on the social calendar this week so there is a possibility to spend more time on it.  That is until I get side-tracked Laughing

Nice and sunny out too so I think I'll go for a stroll along the beach.  Seems a while since I have been down there.

would love to be able to stroll on the beach -but do have some lovey countryside around here -right on the end of the Chilterns. Have been asked to make some more knitted arrows for Festiwool and yarn and fibre show in hitchin in nov. the lady wants 6 but as they take about an afternoon each and knitting on the maching makes my back ache, I think 3 is more likely. did one this afternoon and am creaking around the house now  Laughing

Well girls I went for my eye test and guess what I should have gone Sunday  Very Happy so now going next week.
Have fun with your craft room Mickie it is always good to have a tidy up you find lots of things you had lost  Very Happy
Hope you are less creaky today Vonny I am sure the lady won't mind if you don't do 6 I would rather walk in the country then the beach well I would if my legs worked my scooter prefers the country.

Oh dear Becky -never mind at least they don't charge you!. I can imagine the scooter doesn't like sand much. Dunstable downs near us is great for scotters as there is now a tarmac path all the way along the top -lots of fesh breezes and also often gliders, paragliders and kite flyers to amuse you!
Less creaky today -a swim and a hot shower helped  Smile

Glad you are less creaky today Vonny.  Dunstable Downs sounds like the Southdowns (just down the road).  Nice to have a bit of distraction when strolling I feel. Hang gliding is the big thing there.

Becky I thought you would be like me - sea on the front door and country at the back.  My geography being what it is I guess I got it wrong again.  You would be ok going along our seafront in your scooter - you could even stop off and buy a lovely cup of tea or have an ice cream at the Beach Hut cafe.

I can almost feel a song coming on having waxed lyrically about our sea front Laughing

I do like the sea but prefer countryside at Sidmouth I trundle along the seafront  Laughing my favorite place is Wales I think if me and Keith were fit we would move there.

My idea of heaven used to be living half way up a mountain in Wales.  We spent some time in Caernarvonshire and I loved it.  

Looks miserable out today so I think I will stay in and do some crafting.  Noticed the Postie was still in shorts so I guess it isn't cold, which is nice.  Hoping it stays dry though as having new kitchen window and back door fitted tomorrow.

Posties don't seem to feel the cold - even up here in the far north they go around in shorts in all weathers!

Had some great news this morning - I've been showcased on Less is More for a card I made recently! And I've won a prize from WOW - don't know what it is but I'm sure I will be able to use it.  

I've been busy this week trying to get organised for my holiday - so far I've got some stuff lying on the spare bed and that's as far as it's got.  I've got a lot of yoga on this weekend too as there is a tutor up from south doing workshops.  The one last night was really good so looking forward to the rest.  Hope to get some more ATCs done too as I would like to get them posted before I go away.  

Hope you all have a good weekend and that the weather is fine wherever you are. Margaret

Congratulations Margaret.  Very well done on your winnings and being show cased.

Hope you all achieve everything you have set out to do this weekend.

Congratulations Margaret, that is great news. Enjoy your yoga weekend.

We had a fabulous weekend in Aviemore, it was very wet, but didn't dampen the proceedings much! Thankfully the heaviest rain was whilst we were on the steam train.  The grandchildren stole the show - but they had lots of little surprises for me over the weekend which was fun. Caitlyn is one next week and I am going to Aberdeen for the day for the party (how extravagant is that! but I do get two free ferry tickets now I am 60)  Very Happy  She isn't crawling but manages this really amazing bum shuffle and she can really go fast. Robin tried to recreate it but couldn;t manage it - to much hilarity!

Amazing Margaret that I think you had Adrian in your class when he was only a little older than Callum is now.

Then I stayed with a couple of friends in Irvine - Annie and I are on the Vintage Journey Design Team and Rita is her Mum. Lots of fun, crafting and I learnt the toilet tissue technique (watch out for an ATC) and a faux metal technique.  A great time away Very Happy I hope you are all having a good weekend.
margaret rorie

The yoga was great so now feel well stretched and calm!

Lovely family photos, Jennie. I can't believe your wee granddaughter is nearly one! I think Adrian was in a P3 class I taught at Sound and that wasn't yesterday.

Just had a friend along for Sunday dinner so now I'll need to go and tidy up the kitchen. Might manage to do a card for a challenge tonight too.

Hope you've all had a good weekend. Margaret

Congrats about your Less is More card Margaret
Lovely photos Jennie
I've been away to Devon for a few days- very lucky with the weather -no rain at all! Managed a bit of moor walking.
Very sad to find the craft shop in Newton Abbot had closed  Sad I always bought something there and I know Becky went there too  Crying or Very sad
Mickie

Glad you had good weather and a chance to get away for a few days Vonny.  Shame about the craft shop though
