Hi everyone,

thank you for the lovely comments and emails on the arrival of Lucy.  I will make sure Robyn sees them.

As to becoming an Auntie again....
I like to consider myself as the eccentric Auntie of the family who buys all the horrible noisy presents... then leaves 'til next Christmas...  I'm sure Robyn calls me something

New tricks....or blunders....!!!

Hi everyone,

I have just been publishing comments from my last post, and although I always reply via email, have also tried to leave a reply comment on my blog, however they aren't in the sequence I was hoping for!!  

Knowing me, I am probably missing something very simple, so please bear with me, and hopefully I will eventually get the hang of it..... and I can maybe pass it off as my New Year's

A rocky road......Jenny's Jaunt

Hi everyone,

As you know, my last post was one of my 'jaunts' , however my heart wasn't really in it.

I had been feeling guilty that I hadn't posted a 'jaunt' for a while when I posted the last one, but I wasn't happy with it.

I planned to write this today to say sorry to all of you, then received a happy comment about

I promise I will continue to do more 'jaunts' ....stop but will only do them when I'm happy with what I write.

I hope you continue to enjoy them.  Bye for now, and

Happy crafting,  Jenny

It's a crewel world out there........

Hi everyone,

for this journey
I thought  I would combine.....

so buckle

Some people just don't seem to get the point how therapeutic
embroidery can be.....

It would be lovely to just sit under a lovely 
shady tree and stitch away.....

.....even the branches could lead to inspiration....

......and the number of 
stitches out there.....

.....the variety almost seems to
grow like rabbits

 What ever you do.....
keep those needles away from

Not more!!!!

Hi everyone,

the Craft Bazaar is
over for another year, which is a 
good thing, as I have
run out of energy

I am happy with how the day went  :)
It seemed to start slow, but
then the time just flew.

on some more energy!!
