This blog is about things that happen to amuse me. My cross-stitching hobby along with what ever other bits and bobs come to mind.

Well this is it. Here is my first attempt at using the blog I've set up I'll probably have a million and one disasters but heyho you can only get better (can't you?). This year is the first year we(my hubby and I) have attempted to grow carrots. Now I just know how surprised you are to hear that . We do not have a garden the size of private park land so our carrots were planted in a couple of posh pots. Through the year, in the same pot, pansies have arrived and curly grass( not the bog standard stuff) varying weeds etc. Any how the great day arrived and we decided to see if there really was anything at the bottom of the lovely green ferny tops. There was. Mind you not exactly able to supply all the local shops, we had one meal from our efforts but my they were tasty. Not a total disaster.
Now nothing to do with gardens I enjoy cross stitching and although not the speediest I get there in the end. I went on this blog called I've Started So I'll Finish...Eventually..... what a boon I dug out a UFO (unfinished something or other can't remember what the O stands for) and have beens sewing on it ever since. I think it was about May my first Pic and after a few ups and downs I'm getting there. As you can see I've not quite got the hang of how you get your pics in the right order but this is going to be the biggest learning curve ever. That's it for now thanks for calling in and I hope next time I'll have found my way through s few more of the mysteries of the BLOG. So please bear with me you know Patience is a Virtue. (I'm going to need a lot of it!)
I'm now a lady of leisure with very little spare time. I look after grandchildren each week for 2 days and help in a school for 3 days. I have two sons who have 3 children each. I have had varying jobs from working in a Bank in the '60's to a Bookmakers in the '00'. I enjoy cross-stitching as I find it has a calming effect on my sometimes frayed nervous system. I think my favourite type of designs are the Christmas ones. I thoroughly enjoy doing the Jim Shore, Mill Hill designs purely because I enjoy the beading. There are just so many designers out there it 's a hard choice sometimes.
