Happy St Valentine's Day

Well, its February 14th and, yes, I know its a great time for the Card and Gift shops and its all rather commercial, but hey, if we can't be loving to each other on a special day like today, well its a sad World isn't it?

So I would like to say to everyone on St Valentine's Day that I wish you love, happiness, laughter and joy, not just today, but every day in 2007. And let's remember those who don't have much of those wonderful gifts, because maybe they haven't got anyone special around them to be loved, or because they are in a war-torn country, or don't have a home or a job .... they need our love too.

Hi There Crafting Friends!

Well, after my first posting of 2007, I had to take a few weeks' break because I had to hand in my Dissertation Proposal which meant I was working every weekend on it since mid-January. Now it has been handed in and marked, I am feeling a lot more like getting down to the serious business of Blogging again - I really miss doing my crafts and telling you all about it!! Unfortunately my Seed Sampler has been languishing in my crafts bag unloved :-( and untouched for weeks, but I did some work on it on Sunday, so I only have about 2 hours to complete before its a Happy Dance. So I thought I would put up a photo when that is done, rather than keep adding a photo after only 1 or 2 hours' work!!

In the meantime, I have been buying the Cross Stitcher and World of Cross Stitch to keep in touch with XS and am planning a trip to Olympia with San and her mother in late March which is very exciting. I won £50 prize in the Premium Bonds which is a UK draw we have - the number was one of Mike's which makes it even better - he is looking after me :-) So I have a few funds to splash out on some Stash at Olympia yippeeee!!

It was really cold in UK last week and we had a fair fall of snow on Thursday, so much so that I tried to drive down the hill for a swim at the pool, found that the Leisure Centre was shut then couldn't get back up the hill again as it was so slippery and icy! So I had to park the car in the car park at the bottom of the hill and walk for 2 miles home, which was fun because I could watch all the children playing with snowballs and sliding down the hill on their plastic trays and wooden sleighs - I thought Santa was going to turn up with the presents LOL ;-D

Well, looking forward to being able to show off my Project during my next entry.
