Hello to all my bloggy friends, and welcome to my new followers,
Desire and Lynsey. I hope you enjoy your visits.

From a quick browse it appears that most of you have shrugged off
the effects of the 'silly season', and are back to full swing with your 
crafting. However, I have not posted anything since New Year's 
Day, and other than this post, I will be M.I.A. for about the  
next 2 weeks for 2 reasons.

One is that I am having to do most things for my poor John, because of
his accident. He cannot shower or dress himself, do his hair (he has a 
ponytail), cut up his food, drive the car, nor attend to his normal outside 
tasks. Once again we spent several hours at the hospital yesterday, having
a new cast put on his arm. It is the 3rd one in 10 days, as the casts 
become looser as the huge swelling reduces.

The second reason for my absence is that I am trying to move my studio
down to the spare bedroom in the house. It is mind boggling how much
junk stash I have accumulated in the 15 years since we converted the 
old stable. Lots of people have dropped in to wish John 'get well', 
which is lovely, but of course I use that as an excuse to be 
distracted from the sorting out process.

Since just after Christmas, we have had temperatures in the high 30s, so
that makes going up to the studio, and carting boxes and equipment 
down to the house very unpleasant.

I am bursting at the seams to tell you all some very exciting news, 
but it will have to remain a secret for the moment.
All will be revealed soon, so....

Until then, "happy crafting" and
Big hugs,
Jennifer. x

P.S. The photo is a corner of our garden, but since it was taken about 2 years ago, some of the plants have changed...mainly because of the dreadfully hot and dry conditions we have had in recent years.


  1. I was a little bit MIA over December with all the Christmas preparations and appear to have completely missed the story of poor John's accident. You have clearly been very busy looking after him and I do hope he heals soon.

    I wish you both a happy and healthy 2015 and look forward to seeing your creations once you have completed your crafty move!

    Big hugs, Kat xx

  2. Sorry to hear about all your difficulties, miserable weather here. Hope to see some cards feom you soon and find out your exciting news too

  3. I too am only just returning to action after several months MIA ... life just has a way of throwing a "curve ball" doesn't it? Hope everything settles down for you soon and you're back crafting.
    Hugs, Helen x
