Falling behind again ......


Lots of Birthday celebrations this month ,including mine ,thankyou, to all my dear friends and family for the lovely cards ,messages on facebook and e messages ,you are lovely .

Another month has flown by since I last posted ,so I thought I should crack on with another entry .and since I seem to have rediscovered how to add pictures ,with the new camera ,there are some for you to see ,And I have been knitting and sewing as well as my meetings ,which does take up alot of time .
I went back to the court where I used to work the other week ,on Valentines day, Dear Ruby was ninety ,and so had a party ,and she kindly invited me ,it was so lovely to see all my old friends again .
Here is a picture of Ruby with her niece ,she certainly doesnt look ninety does she ? a lovely Lady who I keep in touch with even though I am retired and have moved away ,such an interesting lady to talk to ,she does beautiful tapestry,and is very well read ,it was her who introduced me to the book ,'Lark Rise to Candleford ' long before it became a TV series ,when she lent me her copy.



Here I am with Jackie ,on the right of the picture, who I see often and love dearly , and Emmie the other side of me, another lady I speak to on the phone frequently ,and at her side is her sister Clara .
My Daughter Kate's son Matt (my Grandson) has a lovely little girlfriend Sara ,who was 18 on the 23rd of February ,so I made her a quillow she was delighted ,it was worth the effort to see here face when she opened it


Here is the cushion that the quillow folds into ....

And now before I sign off let me show you how much shopping I can get on my buggy hee hee ......

Have a good weekend everyone ,and as usual
Love From

Love your BUGGY. I call the ones I ride, scooters. I love to scoot and shop. Both my knees are bad, so walking is a chore. I hope you have a very Happy Birthday.

Hi Jan! :) I've been falling behind on my posts as well... How fast does that bike go? Looks like fun! Have a great weekend! :) Julie

Jeannette said...

I hope you had a lovely day last Saturday. The lovely Ruby certainly doesn't look ninety! I love your quillow, such a unique gift for Sara, and expertly made may I add! I'm sure you'll pass on my birthday wishes to Sara. I'm glad you were able to get out to see your friends, it's good to get out in this awful freezing winter. You certainly know how to load your buggy!! Enjoy the weekend! Jeannette xx

I used to have a bike like your only mine was red. Nippy aren't they. Mine was a bit of a bone shaker though. They ought to make loading the shopping on it an Olympic Sport. Well if snow boarding qualifies.....

Jeannette said...

Congratulations on your birthday. How clever you are making those beautiful things. Great photos.
