67 years and still counting!

Yesterday was my birthday and what a wonderful day. The day started with lots of cards and presents in bed. Then Chris joined me at Church to see the children take over the service. This was followed by watching my eldest granddaughter perform in a gymnastic competition. The evening was spent at Richard's [son] where he had cooked a really nice meal.

My November project

Prayer Garden by Anita Goodesign
 My latest machine embroidery project is the newest design from Anita Goodesign "Prayer Garden". This consists of 94 quilt blocks all made in the hoop. So far I have 14 made, so a long way to go, but I cannot wait to start putting some of the blocks together.

Proud Grandparents

Little Angel of Mine
  Chris and I went to a performance at the Lighthouse Theatre Kettering to see our eldest granddaughter, Abigail age 8 years,  perform. She is an absolute star and performed in four different roles, including a solo spot.

Giddy up Cowgirls!

Fresney Sur Sarthe

Me at the grind stone!

One of the holiday days we went to visit a beautiful village called Fresney sur Sarthe, with dramatic views over the River Sarthe and countryside.

On the way home we visited the war grave of Gunner A H Glasspool. It was November 11th so I left him my poppy as it was the only flower I had with me. He is believed to be a distant relative for my husband. He was only 36 when he died.

Biopsy, bruises and a block finish

Thursday I went into hospital at 10.30 for my lung biopsy, the staff could not have been nicer and put me at ease. The procedure meant lying...
