Sorry it's been a while. I'll blame it on the weather! No really it's true, all my photos look rubbish unless the sun shines.
Also, I've been on a little mini break, a child free long weekend courtesy of my dad. He took me to Amsterdam to stay with my sister. The occasion? A horribly large birthday that's hurtling towards me. I didn't take many photos but spotted Tintin's twin by a canal.
The event? My family's musical hero - Tom Petty. Tickets for England sold straight away, my dad booked himself one for Dublin and then hurrah my sister's boyfriend spotted an ad for an extra date in Amsterdam.
It was 20 years ago I first saw Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and then again in the late '90s so a much awaited, long overdue concert.
They did not disappoint and I've been indulging on you Tube ever since.
Thank you Dad! Thank you Layla! Thank you Pat!
There doesn't seem to have been much time for making around here but I did finish this baby blanket for a customer yesterday. The baby was due yesterday so nothing like cutting it fine.
Now whilst I was away this little parcel turned up from Jane at Teawagon Tales
Some lovely pieces of sheeting to make some patchwork cushions. Thank you Jane!
Earlier in the year you may recall I posted a picture of the top of my fridge each week. I tried to keep it topped up with signs of spring and a growing number of tins and teapots.
Well I'm not sure what happened, perhaps life took over but here is the fridge this week...
When there's nothing pretty there I tend to use it to dump the cardboard recycling before putting in the sack. Well, photographing my lazy habit shamed me into picking up some Stocks going cheap at the Co-op and I'm all inspired to keep tidy once more...
we shall see.
Promise to get back into the bloggy habit too. Welcome new followers. I've been amazed you've joined up even though I've not posted for ages - thank you!
