New beginnings in more ways than one.
A lot has changed in my life in the last few months,
I have given up some activities and taken up others.
Some things are going to be a challenge and a
learning curve for me but I'm looking forward to it.
One thing I discovered though was that I needed
more variety just to bring some balance to my life
- I needed to do something creative.
So I decided to come back to blogging, this is totally different to anything else I am doing and writing and taking photographs is the type of thing I enjoy doing, I find it very relaxing.
I am also cross stitching on a baby blanket.
Middle sis, in Australia, crocheted it 21 years ago for my daughter when she was pregnant. I never got the stitching done on the blanket before the baby was born so she just used it as it was.
Sis had also earlier crocheted the same blanket for my eldest daughter and I'd managed to do the cross stitch on that but for some reason not on the second one. Above is one of the panels I'm copying.
And now we have a new little life just about to begin.
Eldest granddaughter, Monica, remember
the wedding we went to last year, is going to gift us with
a little boy and the blanket came out for me to finish.
Now this is not the sort of creativity I am happy with
but seeing as it is for my first great grandchild it will be done :)
And if I do a little each evening it should be finished in time.
We had a baby shower for her a couple of weekends ago so
I've put up a couple of photo's of the blooming mother to be.
She was so delighted with all her gifts and just slightly overwhelmed by peoples generosity as well, I think.
So...I'm back and find I have enjoyed writing this.
I've been on once or twice reading posts
but only decided last night I needed to come back.
Have a lovely week,
