Hello people, I am still here, the picture above is of my Beautiful Jude and Freddie they get more precious every day.
We are still working very hard on the bungalow, we now have a completed conservatory with  tiled floor as soon as it is furnished I will post a picture, we have carpet in the lounge and our furniture should be in  place within the next two weeks, I actually emptied 3 more boxes yesterday it was lovely to find my Chintz China and put it on the shelves.
Kathleen and I have been to the NEC quilt show since I last posted, we had a great day, spent too much money as usual but saw some beautiful quilts.
Our little sewing group is having an exhibition of some of our quilts so that people in the village can see what we do, there are some lovely quilts and smaller pieces too.
I cannot believe that summer is drawing to a close I do so love the light evenings when it is still daylight at 10.0.clock, now the nights are drawing in and soon the winter will be upon us, I am trying to think of something I like about the winter but there is not much. My son Andrew is getting married next July so we are looking forward to that, I am busy making bunting their theme is Garden Party so there will be lots of flowers about tied to trees in jam jars and all sorts of containers.
I will post again soon !

good to hear your home is progressing well. See from your profile you follow cricket, what excitement yesterday with the test match, I do not have sky but followed on the radio.

I also enjoyed a day out at the quilt show and I am off to the Harrogate one on saturday, much nearer than the NEC and a smaller show so will get to see it all in the one day.

My how they have grown. I to love the light evenings and they seem to have got darker quicker this year. I love the crispness of autumn and the smell. Winter is for curling up under a lap quilt whilst quilting a larger quilt.

Lovely to see your name pop up in my reader list. Your sweet grandsons are growing so much now!
After 15 months in our 'new' home, we are nearly finished with alterations. It all takes time.

Good to see you are ok and getting settled in your new home. The day the clocks change back is my worst day of the year. I try to think of all the time I will have for crafting when we are not so busy outside, but still don't like the thought of winter
