Happy New Year !!

No I haven't dropped off the face of the earth, just busy . I have been on a retreat (ATDML) which was sorely needed at Stoke by Nayland hotel at the end of October. I met up with friends and family that I had not seen for ages and my creativity got a big boost. 

I did a craft fair in November - It was okay but I took too much . I have made loads of jewellery before Christmas but none since . 

The girls and I made Candles and soap to pop into little bags for little Christmas presents .

Christmas went well- Natalie even managed to go to a Christmas party or two before they started to be cancelled.

Bless her - she belongs to a "girls group" that before covid used to meet twice monthly - they had not seen each other for almost two years. I think she would have danced all night.
Now due to the high cases - they will not start meeting in January as planned .

I am back to work tomorrow ( boo hoo) . It will be really cold as we have to keep windows open. The government want us to wear face masks in classrooms, offices and hallways now - not much fun.


I have stated to cross stitch again - nothing too elaborate- I started with a tiny kit :

I am about 1/3 of the way though this one below.

Really proud of Meg as she has just completed this over the weekend.

I didn't think she would stick it out - she is waiting for kit no 2 to arrive.

I am joining in with the Aall and create Polaroid pop challenge in January.
Theses are my first polaroid's up to tomorrow. Will have to catch up at the weekend for the others.
The prompts:

No 1



No 4

No 5

I think we are caught up about now.
back soon
