Hello Dear Friends how are you? I am so sorry that I have been away from Blogland this week, it wasn't intentional at all but work has been so so busy this week and I have been working 12 plus hours per day. I am sure that lots of you work that many hours anyway and I take my hat off to you all. However, being in work that long, doing all the usual things we all have to do such as eating, sleeping and sorting the house/family out doesn't leave me much time to do any craft or blogging. I have really missed you all this week and hope you will forgive my absence. Sometimes it is like that in life - something calls on you which you have to attend to which means that other things have to wait.
Now lovely Peeps I am sure that you are wondering about the Giveaways - no I hadn't forgotten. The lovely Sophie Tilley chose two numbers at random to decide who the winners would be and she picked 3 and 36. I had asked my lovely husband to randomly put numbers to all the lovely people who had entered and the two people chosen with those numbers were the gorgeous Jo from Three Stories High and the lovely Marianne from Ladybird Diaries. I honestly wish I could send each and every one of you a gift but well done to our two winners. I do hope you like your parcels when they arrive.
Here are the two little ladies just about to packed up and sent to their lovely new homes. I know they will both be well looked after with Jo and Marianne.
As you can gather it has been very quiet on the crafting front but I am hoping to spend a little time this weekend doing some bits and pieces - there is bunting to make, cushions to finish plus some other bits and bobs I am working on. I am going to catch up with all the lovely posts I have missed this week to see what you have all been up to.
I have started the Debbie Abrahams Christmas Banner - at least got the first square done. It was so lovely to be knitting with beads again, I had forgotten how much I love it.
I love the colours and am hoping to crack on with this tonight and tomorrow evening. Do you like it? I have also been finishing off the first cowl - it is so easy to do, even when I am tired so I hope to finish it this weekend.
Well lovely Folks that is it for now. I have other work to do before I am settle for this evening but I hope you are all well and happy. I hope you don't get fed up with me leaving you from time to time. Years ago there was a woman called Shirley Conran who was called 'Superwoman', you won't remember her as you are all too young. But, I can remember even then trying to style myself on her and doing all sorts of things plus bringing up four very young boys of my own. I haven't changed much as I still like to think I can keep going but obviously I am certainly not 'Superwoman' anymore, probably never was.
I will hopefully speak with you all again tomorrow, have a lovely evening or day depending where you are in the world. Big hugs to you all, Dorothy :-)xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
