catching up

Hello lovely bloggy I hope you are all fine and dandy and thank you for popping by to see me ,we are all well in patchwork house although we are leaving our lovely  home shortly ,our house is very old damp and in need of desperate attention and a lot of money spending on it so the estate have decided to sell it along with a lot of other properties I our village ,I have been expecting it for some time so it is not a complete shock so I have been house hunting lately ,York is so expensive to rent too so I will need lots of luck trying to find something that ticks all our boxes having a son at college, a teenage daughter and a 6 yr old x
So I will hopefully be showing you some new housey pictures soon ,here is a corner of my work room with books , paperwork ,my computer and other bits and pieces ,my fabric and wool is nearby looking slightly dishevelled so I will show you that next time

I am loving crochet at the moment ,this is my latest project ,a lovely cushion for our new house , I really don't often make things to keep I usually end up selling them on but I am planning lots of lovely handmade makes for the new house
I sit here watching tele with a glass of wine or two !!
