Another thing that happens is I see all the wool, lace and ‘stuff’ that I have accumulated in my room and I start to think maybe I should just throw this away and
Nathan who is 6 and my Mom and Dad,
and we get to visit with a few friends for good measure!!
So it is usually a really good break full of fun – the trick here is to try sort it all out without panicking too much!

Guess what it is still home to a huge selection of fabrics, ribbons and wool and the rest of the space had been converted to hold stalls rented out to crafters to display and sell their goods. Found a scrapbook ‘shop’ some antiques stalls and all sorts of other delightful goodies.

on his first Fathers Day. He is a new dad to twin boys!
My precious grandsons, Matthew and Alexander were originally due today,
but they were in a bit of a hurry and arrived on the
4th of May instead.
keep their Mom and Dad on their toes,
but the daily reports I get at all good.

When we moved to the United Kingdom, a year later I resorted and managed to post some back here, but much to my absolute frustration, it is all in storage at the moment as I currently work for five weeks with one week off as a 'live in companion' to a delightful lady who is 88 years old.
I spend most of my day in the sitting room with my dear lady and as I need to keep my mind and hands busy, I have taken to knitting and crocheting, trouble is because this is not my normal choice of hobby I struggle to come up with an exciting project.
Crocheting flowers is so much fun and so quick to make ... so inspired by the flowers I made, I went searching for some lavender bags and found some in the Village shop that are only 2" square and made these little scented bags to make a top drawer smell delightful.
