well the party is nearly over…back to work..lots to do

exciting things …but have just started to wind down. You know that one, and then it is ready to start again and I have been procrastinating.

so many squares so little time

but the granny squares are going well,

although it becomes a little obsessive and you can’t stop,

and you think, ‘I’ll just do one more’

and then you realize how many you are actually going to have to do to make a blanket ,

and you think ‘well I could turn it into a bag maybe’.

the weather is divine ..London Blossom is busting out all over

London blossom today...You cannot beat urban blossom for giving us a lift.. and the heath is lovely at the moment, and so many opportunites to eat cake have arisen

please be like this when I get to wake up on top of a hill surrounded by sheep for my birthday ( cough cough) next Friday.
