So....what have I learnt since I last posted....not a lot, sadly. The photos will probably have to stay where they are, unless a helpful Blog Fairy waves it's magic wand....No? Thought not.
However, after many, MANY years of using computers (badly), my friend's daughter pointed out I was using the incorrect apostrophy, and got her mum to show me which one I should be using......I hadn't realised that there was more than one on the keyboard (I don't have this problem with pretty notepaper and fountain pens), so my heartfelt thanks goes to Becky (you know who you are, and I'm sure your French GCSE will go BRILLIANTLY) for stopping me from looking like a complete numpty.
More thanks go to my fabulous photographer friend, Jane, who has taken pity on me, and has said she'll take the photos for me. Well, perhaps not ALL of them, but certainly the really important ones. I hope you are all suitably grateful-her work is amazing...
And now finally to my WIP's. The cupcakes are fun to make, and easy to carry the makings around with me to swimming classes, football sidelines and so on, when I need to be doing "mum" things, but not wanting to be sitting idle......Am I the only (possibly dreadful ) mother, who doesn't feel immense joy, in watching her son practise the same front crawl, up and down an overheated swimming pool, at the end of her already busy day??? Possibly best you don't answer that. Or report me to some child helpline. Anyway, they make really good pincushions.....The cupcakes. Not the children. Or the child helplines.
The quilt will be cot size, when finished, and is the first I've ever made where I've pieced the back (thank you, Amanda Jean Nyberg). I'm afraid I have no idea what any of the fabrics are, though I think the red check is possibly IKEA, the rest being donated scraps. I'll try and get Jane to photograph the finished quilt, so I can sit back and listen to your "ooo"'s and "aaah"'s.

Well, after vowing to remain true to letter writing, in the old fashioned way (remember pretty paper, fountain pen, stamps??) I have finally succumbed to the pressure of the internet, as the quickest and easiest way of getting my work seen! Heaven help me (and possibly you), as I`m possibly the most computer illiterate person you`ve yet to meet. Please do not hold your breath for many photos.....and those that DO make it onto these pages, are likely to be the most basic of all basics!! You have been warned, so no complaints later, please! Actually, I`ve just realised that I have absolutely NO idea how to put photos on this page....hmmm......steep learning curve looming. Thank gooness for teenage offspring-one of them will sort it out..... So. If you enjoy needlework, and think you can put up with me, then please follow me, and we`ll see where this all leads.......
