Hewoo there and goodness gracious me lets see now how do I do this again...
Well Happy Xmas 2012
Happy New Year 2012/2013
There now that's covered the basics u think???? I can hear some saying where u been and some know bits n bobs, well Col became very ill and we very near lost him, but thank goodness a couple of special people finally worked out what it was and now he takes a couple of pills and he's a whole heap better, not only that but he's also in very special company cos the likes of Abe Lincoln and John F. Kennedy and also Helen Redy ok not sure who Helen is she is the lady who wrote and sang " I am woman", there's quite a few more names but the best thing is he's alive and taking over the jobs he had to leave because he was so damn ill.
Now then wot have I been doing, much praying and believe me I cannot get down on my knees these days to pray anymore anyhow a whole heap of worrying, and not much stitching at all but the time has come to do some more normal things. Although I did keep up with my reading and also would allow myself to wander through some others blogs and web pages when I needed some quiet time.I also allowed myself some retail therapy that's always good for the soul got some lovely 7 mm ribbons from one of my favourite Aussie firms Colour Streams (www.colourstreams.com.au) no commercial interests just a very satisfied customer.They have some of the most spectacular colours and also have the colour through a range of 4mm and 7 mm ribbons through to different sizes threads etc fabrics and patterns etc. When I need cheering up yup I head off to the website allways works for me.
Then just todayI received a very small packet from another of my favourite web shops no names here. I was so disappointed not with the quality of the threads, not with the price of the threads, they were on special and I only paid $2.00 for Gumnut Stars and also Gumnut buds, okay so what was I disappointed with??? the postage and packaging price that was $9.60. Seems to me to be a bit overcharged. My threads cost me $10.00 and it was almost the same again for the postage and packaging. I have learnt my lesson ( the hard way) and won't be shopping there again hummmph!
Enough of the whinging, my colourstreams ribbons are so pretty and ever so lovely to stitch with, and make some very pretty roses, or peony, or lilacs, or what about some pansies mmm I think I can feel an idea into my tired and addled brain of what to use them for oh yessiree I think I for it, an idea is blooming I gotta go and draw this down before it goes, remember my old brain is just not what it used to be.
Anyway I'm really sad that I didn't blog over the Christmas/ New Year and also January, Col wasn't in hospital all that time but when he was home I just couldn't function well enough to write I know others have had similar and can understand I sincerely hope those who haven't been through this type of experience never have to, it's not great. Anyway here's hoping that all of you out there in blog land had a wonderful Christmas ( or what ever you have in your time and religion or not) and I really hope that everyone had the most fantastic New Year and that 2013 is a whole better year then 2012 was for most people.
Love n hugs bear xoxoxo
