Back Again...

 Hello last time I was here for any length of time was ages ago!!
I've had no proper internet service since 28th Sept just a few minutes here and there.
But after lots of pleading phone calls to Virgin Media I finally got an engineer out this afternoon to tell me the problem wasn't what they'd said but something totally unrelated.
Anyways its all fixed now I hope and I can get a few blog posts in before I head off to sunnier climes for a week on Sunday.
So in the past however long I've done lots...

Two Monday morning Stitch 'n' Bitch sessions....
Evie joined us this morning because she had an inset day at school.

Three lovely notebooks...the CK ones for Kia and Mica because they keep trying to steal mine! and the old Ladybird book style one is mine...

This is written on the label of the Ladybird notebook.
If your formative years meant...
School dinners were liver and onions 
rather than Turkey Twizzlers.

A Blackberry was something you picked
in a country lane and not something you
spent your weekend ignoring.

MySpace was a den in your back garden
built with bed sheets and runner bean canes.

Noah,Isaac and Joshua were characters from
the bible rather than kids in your class.

Wheelies were what you did on your bike 
in the park and not what you wore on your
feet for the the weekly shop.

And if you wanted to be an astronaut, train
driver,footballer or anything other than a 
CELEBRITY when you grew up

you are a product of the Ladybird generation.

And what can I say?
I most certainly am and I could not resist this lil' book!!

I've crocheted a fair bit too and found the time to get Kia's cushion completely finished for her to take back to Aberdeen tomorrow.

Hi Em. Wow it's been forever since I got to hop over and visit. I hope all is well on your side of the world. I definitely am a product of the Ladybird generation. Gosh, I'm the old gal now. How did that happen, pretty soon my grand kids and I won't even have a clue what we're talking about to each other. BTW ~ my Granddaughter who will be 8 on the 21st is named Ki'a. Small world.

Hugs...Tracy :)

Hi Emma!
I had a giggle when I read the label of the Ladybird notebook, so true!
Your swap parcel is ready to be sent, but since it will take a week to reach you, I prefer to post it while you're away, I hope you agree!

Kia's crocheted cushion is beautiful - well done :0)

Hurray!! Amazing cushion. I'll need to pick your brains about cushion construction at some point because I want to make one but have no idea how to go about it!
