September Already

I can't believe how quick the year has gone by! September already. The summer here has been rather a wash out. Apparently we had the heaviest amount of rainfall in August since records began :(

I have changed the name of my blog to reflect me and the things I love to do which is all sorts of crafts. Cross stitching is taking a back seat at the moment as I can't see to do it until I sort out some new glasses as my eyesight has changed.........guess its an age thing lol.

I have recently taken up adult colouring. It really does help with anxiety and is very therapeutic.

Colin and I are still drumming. It's our only form of socialising and we still enjoy it.

Small Update

All my stash and WIP's are in the loft since I lost my stitching mojo but I did manage to find a small kit in a drawer.

Its not a brilliant photo but you get the idea.

My progress so far. 

I am enjoying stitching on it even though it is aida and navy aida at that. Colin is going to get all my stash down from the loft soon.

My bookmark arrived from sewandso today. Not sure when I am going to start it yet. Hmmm, do I have two projects on the go or finish Count the Stars first?

It's Been A Long Time

It has been a very long time since I have blogged yet alone done any cross stitch. Unfortunately I had a traumatic event in my wonderful son Chris, committed suicide. I am slowly picking up the pieces in my life, one has too for my other children and grandchildren.

I have had a strong urge to cross stitch again and to be honest, I can't be bothered to sort through my stash so I have ordered a bookmark kit from Sewandso. Hopefully it will arrive by Wednesday so I can start it.

I am still drumming, it's the only thing that keeps me sane lol.
