I can't believe how quickly time passes by. It has been such a long time since my last post and so much has happened. Christmas and New Year have been and gone, I hope you all had a great time. We have been very busy in the shop and are working on exciting new plans for the year ahead including lots of courses.

Sparky has been poorly again, he has had an eye infection which led to an ulcer on his eye but luckily that responded to topical treatment and didn't need surgery just numerous visits to the vets.

Nick has gone to the Falkland Islands and isn't due back until April. We thought he may have to come back last week as Steph has been quite poorly. So there has also been visits to Peterborough and Stamford hospitals and doctors.

The biggest news of all came from Anthony when he announced that we are going to be grandparents. Baby is due sometime in September.

And I had a birthday so another year older!

These are some of the pressies I received. Pam made me a Scissor, Rotary Cutter and Odds and Sods case. 

This is a Sewing Case also made by Pam.

And this is a Jewellery Roll made by Barbara. This little jewellery roll is very very special, Barbara really hates putting in zips and apparentley she wasted a lot of fabric with all the attempts in doing so. I am very grateful and it will be used.

This is a little snap shot of some christmas presents that I've made ready for this year. I know it's a bit early but I was in such a mess last year because I ran out of time that I made a New Years Resolution this year (something I have never done before) and it was not to be in a mess this christmas. Well thats the idea we shall just have to wait and see.

Please feel free to leave me a comment it's always nice to hear from you even if you haven't left a comment before and that includes you Monica!
