Just quickly!

Hi All,

I have been away from blog land for a bit - too mad busy to do anything. Firstly it was the exhibition and then half term - I had to do extra hours to cover holidays etc and then I had a day off to take Lottie prom dress shopping. Then it was back to school (make that just for exams with extra running about to cover in between) plus more extra hours and a bout of tonsillitis and finally yesterday Embroiderers guild had a trip to Bradford to Bombay stores and Texere yarns! I can truly say I have been too busy!

So a quick catch up on events then - our exhibition had 440 visitors over the 3 day weekend!

We got a prom dress - very pretty but not anything that went with the Tilia shawl sadly so Cindarella (the yarn name) will not be going to the ball. I ordered some fresh yarn from NDS instead in a very pretty gold colour and cast that on last weekend as well - I have a deadline to work to now!

This week has been a busy exam week and Monday saw a very red and sore throat - loads of gargling with disparable aspirin did the trick along with some rest and Lottie managed to see it off - Maths and Graphic products exams today!

Yesterday saw me running around at 6.30 am to get everything ready for our trip to Bradford. It was a great day and I bought lots of lovely things - more on that later.

Now I have to dash and get Lottie out of the door - roll on Saturday is all I can say!

You have been a busy bee - my daughter is going through exams at the moment too and is currently on study leave - just going to school for the exams.
