Short but Sweet (hopefully)

Hi one and all

Sorry I've been absent for a while - no excuses just pure laziness and looking after her upstairs, plus the computer was out of action because the lead was broken and I had to wait for a new one and I couldn't find my camera either but I have both now.  Sometimes I can't believe where I put some stuff to be 'safe'.  Right now we are searching for the charger for my 'going on vacation scooter' which we can't find anywhere but have agreed it must be here somewhere.

Anyway what's been happening in my life?  Well you all know how much I love my daughter-in-law Danielle well her mother is just the nicest person and it was one of her big birthdays and I know Roberta & Jeff are not crazy present givers like me, who always goes over the top where presents are concerned, and, as she always admired my stitching so much I decided to stitch and finish something for her.  This was a good few months ago I must add but here are the photos.  Oh yeah I gave her the scissors too ...

... as we share this one gorgeous Grandson I thought it was appropriate and Roberta really loved it (at least she told me she did).

And here is the birthday boy himself:

Ollie Thinking
"Aha!!!  This is what I've been missing all this time... CHOCOLATE!"

Two cookies in hand.  One obviously wasn't enough.  He grabbed the packet from a table (how is that for talented) and took two out.

And although I didn't exactly win Okenka's giveaway she liked what I said so much that she stitched and finished these gorgeous things for me anyway.  I like not wining but wining if you know what I mean and I LOVE them both to pieces.  Thank you so very very much Olga for being so generous of heart.

Beautifully stitched and finished and some lovely things inside which I shall show you next time now that I have my computer up and working again and I found my camera.

I received the one nearest to you and it is so gorgeous it just isn't true.

Well that's all from me for now except to say I'm really glad I'm back and hope you all enjoy this post and thank you so very much for all the very lovely (how's that for British) comments you always leave.

So until next time ... 
Lots of Love Patti (American by birth and mouth) xxx
