October 2010 - Where did the time go?

I can't believe that I haven't posted here since January - where has this year gone? I have revamped my blog for Halloween and hope to start posting fairly regularly agan.

Well, I have been incredibly busy at work which has taken a lot of my energy..... so much so, that I have barely lifted a needle all year. Anyway, I am hoping to remedy that situation very soon and, after our recent holiday on the island of Islay I am feeling much refreshed and have now got lots of stitchy plans running around my head.....so watch this space! The photo at the top of the blog was taken on holiday and is a photo of the mountains and moorland on Jura, which is an island which is just a very short ferry ride from Islay.

On the family front this has been an amazing year - I am now 'Granny' to our first grandchild, Daisy, and am soon to be a 'Granny' again in November when our second daughter is expecting her first baby. Just like all grannies worldwide I think my grandchildren are the most gorgeous, clever and interesting babies in the world and I really need to get busy stitching birth samplers, don't I?

Anyway, time to hit the 'publish post' button and head off to bed........
