Good friends are more precious than gold!

A weekend away with laughter, and crafting and more laughter is just what my soul needed. I feel rejuvenated, re-set and ready to tackle the end of year count down.

I can't thank the girls enough for their support and kindness.

How delightful it was to come back to my blog and see 4 people have left comments! Blog readers and reminders must still be working on some blogs, even for the ones covered in cobwebs! Thank you ladies for taking the time to comment. 
The blogging grapevine and where I go for all things bloggy tells me that Blogtoberfest is not officially happening this year as it has been retired. 
Well that won't stop me and I'm going to try and blog every day to get back in the swing of things. 
So here it is....my messy craft and work room. This is where I need to start.
When we moved to this house 12 months ago, my sewing table, that was originally my great-grandparents small dinning table, was sadly broken and so I was using my sisters table while she sort-of lived with us for a while. She has taken it back to make her own sewing room and I've been left with a big empty space.
