The search is complete

For 5 years I have been searching antiques markets, charity shops, high street stores (less so) for a old oak farmhouse table for my kitchen.. I wanted a table that could be abused by family life and got better with age (just like me ;) ) I found it and it is proudly in our kitchen.. A fraction of the price of a new shiny table that I wouldn't have wanted.. I got it on gumtree and the person that had bought it had used it for several years and got it in a local auction house.

I have had problems logging onto blogger and was on hols last week so didn't get to reply to last blog posts but I will

Hopefully will get some more free time soon to get back doing some more sewing but for now ... 'the great British bake off'... Scones anyone?? ... Xx

Sew tired!

Ok so not much sewing going on . I've had my op in August and got plenty done with my time off but now I'm back to the grindstone and working away.. My hubby was in hospital for a week.. ( all better now), and in last 3 weeks my granda was dying in hospice so in between work, dinners, being wife and mum
I've been heading 50miles down the road to newry to spend time with my dad while he waits for granda.. He passed today and it is a great relief as he was so unwell.

I will be getting back to things after a very welcome break in Donegal this week!!

Chat soon xx
