Calling Little Wandering Wren....

Good evening everyone.

I hope you are all well.

Sorry I have been absent again of late but I will reveal the reasons in time...I promise.

This is just a quick call out to...

Little Wandering Wren...

We have been paired up in Amy's Christmas Card Swap but I can't find your email address...

Mine is in my 'Complete Profile' on the right hand side of my blog...

Hope you can see it there...I'm struggling to find yours on your blog....

Hoping to hear from you soon....

FNWF - Oh What Shall I Do?....

Good morning everyone.

I hope you are well.


 Friday evening found me joining in with like minded crafter's from around the world who join together (virtually) that is.....on the first Friday of the month to do a spot of knitting, sewing, crocheting etc....whatever craft you like....

Thank you to Cheryll for hosting this fabulous get together. 

I wasn't too sure what to do as my head is little all over the place at the moment I'm afraid but I will blog about the reasons for that at a later date.....

So I hit on the idea of putting a list together of all my projects that need to be completed before I can start anything new....so it was more of an evening of sorting and organising than actual doing although the needle was picked up for a short time....

Here are some of the things I need to finish....

The Holly Fairy


The Knitted Throw


The Autumn Queen


The Spirit Of  Christmas


And Finally

The Beaded Santa



I have a dozen or more other projects to finish but these I have decided are to be completed first....

Wish me luck!!!

Right now I can spend a bit of time having a look at what everyone else was doing.


Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

I really do appreciate your visits and lovely, encouraging comments.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

The Enchanting Rose - 9th Tea Cup & Mug Exchange

Good evening everyone.

I hope you are all well.

The weather has definitely taken a turn and it is very cold here tonight...time for woodburners and hot chocolate I think!!!

The lovely Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose hosted the 9th Tea Cup & Mug Exchange and I have joined in again....This time around there were 192 ladies who participated and Stephanie did an amazing job of organisation as always. Thank you so much Stephanie......

Once again I was absolutely thrilled with my lovely parcel that I received from the very generous Dawn....this time my parcel came from Cornwall....and was just perfect. 


Autumn 2016 Tea Cup Exchange



Here are the lovely gifts that Dawn sent to me. 

The cup and saucer are so pretty and the lovely brooch is adorning one of my jumpers. The little bird is hanging in my craftroom from one of my shelves and the tea has almost gone...The beautiful doily is now sat on the hall table for all to see....

A beautiful selection of gifts and all perfect.

Thank you so much Dawn....

I had the pleasure of putting together a parcel for Tiina in Estonia....

and here are the things I sent....


I do hope she liked them....

Will I take part again....Absolutely....I can't wait...It's such a lovely exchange and so exciting.

Thanks again Stephanie for organising this lovely exchange....

Pop over to Stephanie's blog to see what all the other ladies received in the exchange....


Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

Searching For The Whales....

Good afternoon everyone.

I hope you are all well.

Here I am again catching up with some of the things I was doing during my Summertime blogging break.

As ever we spent some time in my favourite place Whitby....and this time we thought we would take a trip out for a spot of Whale Watching....and we weren't disappointed.

It was a beautiful afternoon, slightly chillier out to sea but well worth the trip.

My Faithful Shipmates On This Adventure

My Best Friend...


And My Best Girl


We were very lucky and were able to spot at least four different Minke Whales and we were able to follow them as they chased shoals of  fish. It was a great afternoon and such a thrill to see such wonderful animals in their own habitat....


It is such a treat to see and so exciting when the shout of 'Whale' goes up. I have a few photos of the whales but missed taking photos of them half the time as I was a) to slow with the camera or b) just totally in awe of them. Brogan's photos are far better than mine.


It was also lovely to see my beloved Whitby from another angle as we sailed back into harbour in the early evening sunshine.

What a fabulous treat and I would certainly recommend the trip to anyone.


Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

I really do appreciate your visits and lovely, encouraging comments.

Enjoy your evening.

Friday Night With Friends....Catch Up!

Good morning everyone.

I hope you are all well.

So as it seems to be the 'norm' lately for me I'm late to the party once again....

I'm not quite sure where my time is going.... 

On Friday I decided to join in with like minded crafter's from around the world who join together (virtually) that is.....on the first Friday of the month to do a spot of knitting, sewing, crocheting etc....whatever craft you like....

Thank you to Cheryll for hosting this fabulous get together. 

It's been a while since I joined in but I'm determined to keep up this time....even making a note in my diary!!!


Well I decided to continue adding stitches to my Nora Corbett... 


The Holly Fairy



Not a great deal of progress but at least I have almost finished the skirt now...I love all the shades of green....feeling just a tad inspired to get her finished now....

 I'm pleased I managed to find the time to join in this month...I will definitely be taking part again next month.....the dates already in my diary.

So now I can spend a bit of time having a look at what everyone else was doing.


Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

I really do appreciate your visits and lovely, encouraging comments.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

The Holly Fairy....Again!!!

Good afternoon everyone.

I hope you are well.

Ok...so you can tell that the weather is beginning to get a little cooler....because I have started to pick up my cross stitch of an evening....Thank goodness for my magnifying light!!!.....or else I wouldn't see a thing....


The Holly Fairy




This was as far as I managed up to March 2016. I know...I know.....I'm officially rubbish. I can't believe I haven't even put one stitch in since then but I am determined to finish this piece of work no matter what....

I will keep you posted...


Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

I really do appreciate your visits and lovely, encouraging comments.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

The Colour Run...

Good evening everyone.

I hope you are all well and that you've had a lovely weekend.

So here I continue with my catch up on what I was doing during my little summer blogging break....

We did

The Colour Run

Well when I say we, I mean Miss B and yours truly!!!



We had a great time and I did run.....for the first few minutes until we were out of the gates anyway....I can't even run for a bus anymore.....the joints and muscles won't let me.....my ankles crack, my knees crunch and my calves burn but I do walk rather quickly.....


It was a lot of fun as long as the coloured starch doesn't get up your nose and you keep your mouth firmly closed when you run through each colour station....easier said than done when your laughing your head off at everyone else!!!


We will definitely do it again next year and maybe we'll run a bit more and probably get some sponsors organised and do it for charity.


So pleased we didn't have to come home in our own cars though....my lovely partner brought us home in his.....that stuff gets everywhere....sorry Darling but do you know our clothes and trainers washed perfectly clean again....bonus!!!....not sure about his van seats though!!!....Whoops.


Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

I really do appreciate your visits and lovely, encouraging comments.

Enjoy the rest of your evening.
