happy busy days

Thank you everyone for birthday wishes and anniversary wishes.We had a great time on all .
I diddnt get my new computer,I chose the one I want,but decided to wait untill after Christmas.
This is Betsys closet  quilted ,its not a good photo,we have had very poor light all the week here,wet misty all week.
I also managed to quilt my Christmas table runner.


Here it is on the cupboard in my hall,with the table frame thingy on top.....
This is what I had for my birthday,a sizzix big shot.I have the old red one for many years,but its a bit heavy on my silly shoulder,this is so much easier,and I can use all my old dies.Very very happy girl.


the old one
will have to find a good home for this one..

thought I would show a few of the old things hanging around my home.This one I started and got fed up with,so my friends mum Shiela finished it for me. 1998 this was made.

A bit of ribbon weaving.

Henry  V111   in blackwork 1994 ,
My daughter Nicola made this one many years ago when she was still at school,its tapestry long stitch ,its on my bedromm wall.
I have lots around the place ,may put a few more on another time.
My dear friend Sue sent me a lovely gift for my birthday,I will take a picture and put it on next time.
Its back to my knitting now,making Santa and wife for Nicky,made them for Natalie last year,and of course have to do them again.
till next time ,have a lovely weekend.
love from me,xxx
