I had a good holiday and I've got photos when the computer is up and running again.

I am working on my Advent swap and am knitting like mad!

Tomorrow we are off to Devon for a week!

Tonight I am debating which of my many projects I am going to take.

See you in a week!

All sorts!

I've got lots to share tonight.

First I am taking part in this advent swap that is being co-hosted by Jo in Tas & Fiona. My swap partner is Karol-Ann, which is funny as I've been following her blog for ages.
I nearly missed the boat on this swap as my original e-mails replying to the swap when it was first getting going disappeared into cyber space and I nearly didn't get a partner.

I'm looking forward to this swap, it's good fun plotting and scheming what I'm going to put in my parcel. Tomorrow I'm going to a Stitch & create show at Manchester Central so I intend to look for bits that I can include.

Today has been my 27th Wedding Anniversary. I can't believe we've been married that long. Yes! I know I said that when we celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary 2 years ago! But I can't! We've been out for a meal which was really nice. We've both been so busy it was nice to sit down in the same place and be able to talk.

DD's Fiance, Gromit, is being posted to Germany after 5 weeks leave with us. She is going to really miss him. This is his first posting and he is looking forward to it.

We are so proud of him.

Do you remember those piles of 4 square blocks and triangles? Well! I've started turning them into blocks.
Spot the deliberate mistake- lol

I got another lovely little parcel from The Fat Quarter shop. I bought a couple of magazines, 2 yards of Moda 'Fabulous Fall' and these 2 patterns in their sale.

I think I was drawn to 'Three Coins' because it was orginally made in Moda 'Roman Holiday' which is the fabric range I'm doing my Hexi quilt in.
Talking of which - an update of it

Not much further really! I'm going to take it on holiday with me in a week's time and hopefully I'll do a bit then. I'm not worried about this quilt, I fully expected for it to take me a long time. For this quilt it's the journey to get there rather than the end product that is important.
Right, sleep time as I have to be up for the show tomorrow. I am hopeful I will meet up with Jan. This will be the first time I will have met her so I hope we can meet up. You never know there might be a photo tomorrow!

Don't worry if you don't if you don't hear from me. I've computer cable problems, its got a loose connection in it. I don't think it is going to last much longer, it is getting harder and harder to get the laptop on and to stay on. It doesn't help that the battery on this laptop is completely dead as well but I don't think it is worth replacing the battery as the laptop needs upgrading in due course.I've ordered a new one which I should get this week.

Also in a week we going on holiday - Yipee!

I do have things to share including a Advent swap.
