A trip down memory lane

Last night, as I promised, I finished the applique and embroidery for the Lynette Anderson bag but, before I managed to complete the yoyo's I got side tracked.  Some weeks ago I had bought a multiple photo frame with the intention of going through old photos and displaying them upstairs.  Well, last night was the night.  As I trawled through the photos so memories came back - of people and animals, of course, but also of the house and how much it, and the garden, has changed over the 25 years that I have lived here.  The kitchen, for example, is unrecognisable whilst I used to have a gorgeous garden that I had worked hard to create.  Perhaps the work being completed in the garden next week will reignite that passion!

Onto today and it was a return visit to the hospital for my neighbour - she was having her cast removed and a boot fitted.  As the taxi driver it was therefore an early start.  I cannot go to SW tomorrow night (its the WI supper club) so I took the opportunity to get weighed at a morning class. Despite the pie and mash / salted caramel ice cream in Bridlington, I still managed to lose a pound so have to be pleased with that (although I would, of course, have liked more!).

Once home, it was down to finishing the stitch and flip sewing from yesterday (yes I know that I hoped to finish it last night but ......) and putting the photo frame up before moving on towards completing a Christmas present that has been on the boil for a week or two.  I don't know about you but it's cold and wet here so it's a day to stay in and get on top of jobs.

Tonight, Christmas present permitting, I want to focus on my Tuesday night class homework.  As you may recall the classes are now every fortnight but we have been given a mountain of cutting to do before next week so it seems pertinent that I use tonight's time to at least make a start.


  1. Good news from s.w.
    Hope you don't put it back on tonight?
    Bags coming on well.
    Hope you find it easier than I did?

  2. Lovely sewing :) Lovely pic collection too!
