Catching Up

I'm Back! Well honestly I've been back home since last Monday but I just haven't had the time or the enthusiasm to start blogging again, but I think I've found it again.

My Dad's op seems to have gone well his consultant was quite confident that they have managed to get the bad stuff but we have to wait a couple of weeks for the biopsy just to be sure, the results of this will also determine whether my Dad has to start a course of chemo or not so we all have our fingers crossed that he won't.

I'm still way behind with my swaps but have made a few inroads during the evenings this week by catching up with the beaded doll RR's that I'm in. In my eagerness to get them moving again I've posted the dolls on without taking any photos though :( Nevermind it will teach me to slow down a bit in future and make sure I have done everything before I pack my parcels up.

You might remember me mentioning a couple of posts ago that one of my postcards was to be published in an article in a local magazine. Wiltshire Life has in the current issue an article about Kandy Newton and her enthusiasm for textiles. I expect some of you will know Kandy from the Internet groups, here is my cat card as featured in the article.

Ok so I don't get a mention as such and it is only a picture but this is the first time that I've ever been published anywhere so I'm quite excited about it!

The sun is shining here again today as it has been all week so hopefully Mark and I are just about to go out for the day (haven't decided where yet!) to enjoy some of it.

Well done for getting published Angela, pity they didn't give you credit though. Still, next time perhaps you'll have an article of your own :))

Hey that's a great pic of your card. At least we know who it belongs to and that's what matters ;0)
Hugs, Alis
