My mum is doing OK .. thanks to all who asked x As is the case when resistance is low .. the infections we would normally shake off attacked.. she had a cold and chest infection .. then a dodgy tummy .. not fun! Now she has some balance issues that are making life ..interesting .. shall we say xx .. she will be 85 on Saturday so thoughts are turning to the celebrations for that x We have had quite a few birthdays with an ..0 on the end recently and we had a celebration at my aunts house last Saturday .. for someone with little breath mum had a wonderful time ...TALKING xx

I have been spending time in the garden .. due to the weather deciding that May will be sunny and dry....









..I'm not complaining  xx AND the colour of the sky must have influenced the colour of my latest shawl..




I had a bag to make for a birthday present ..






.. that has gone in the post xx I do like it when I can cross things off my ...to do ... list x

It was Sandbach Quilt group meeting on Thursday last week and we had Amanda Hall from (www.monkeybuttons.com )... it was a great night with LOTS of show-and-tell .... and there was a raffle in which I WON A PRIZE xx It was something that made me laugh xx I worked on it over the last couple of days and now I have ...

Lovely to see you back!! Boy you had better get a plug in the fountain quick smart!!! Lol!! That yellow rose is beautiful! Nice to get out in the garden.
Good to hear your Mum is up to talking, she must be getting better!! LOL!! Hope she has a happy birthday. Love the blue shawl and the monkey is so cute. Girls clothes have always been more interesting than boys I have found!!

Your garden work has been rewarded with beautiful color and blooms galore! Your knitting is amazing! The color of the shawl is beautiful; but my favorite is the monkey. Yes, girl's clothes are much more fun to shop for!

Missed you, I guess Alfie Boe and Michael Ball are doing concerts together.
I was going to be in NY in November and I was hoping to see Alfie in
"Finding Neverland" the show is ending in August. Alfie got to sing for the queen.
