What Have I Been Up To.

Yes, it’s me after a long absence again. I have been doing loads of stuff, but not finding time to blog about it.

First we had my sister, Lily and her husband Steve over for 2 weeks holidays. We even went away with them for a few days. So we had a mini holiday ourselves. We travelled to the west side of Crete and spent 3 nights away. Lucky even came with us.

The same day as they went home we had other guests. My sisters son, another Stephen and his wife Tracey, for a week. We went swimming, fishing, dining and generally had a good time.



The weather here now is quite changeable.  We have had sun but Monday we had rain, thunder and lightening and sun but it was still t-shirt weather. I suppose it is past been summer now.

However it was lovely on Sunday when I went to a bazaar in Elounta. I got loads of things.





Lovely things to cut up and use in quilts and two handbags.



Some crochet lace.


Three books and a game for the winter nights.


I have been cutting up t-shirt material and making this rag rug. It’s heavy and slow going and hurts the hands a bit. So its little and often with this one.


These are the string blocks I started ages ago. I had seven and a half done, now I have twelve.


Most people have a design wall, well met my design floor. The camera is telling lies here as the sashing material is a deep pink colour.


It is looking good don’t you think? Just after I had took this photo along came a little Lucky dog and when she had finished it looked like this.


Oh and I have started knitting but I will keep that for another day. Got to go and pick up the pieces of my quilt now if I can get Lucky to move.


C’ya all soon, I promise.
