I'm still here!

Hi folks all

I'm still here after a slightly enforced absence.

We've finally sold our house and the international removals have taken 99% of our belongings (including my sewing machine!) I've plenty to keep me out of mischief without using the sewing machine, but am certainly missing it. I've kept back a couple of projects to see if I can finish off at Mum's when we go up at the end of the week. Hopefully I'll be able to post about those after Christmas.

In the meantime we're in rented accommodation temporarily relying on dongles for Internet access. So not much Internet gets used at home now! I've resorted to doing things on my laptop tapping into our free wi-fi at work!

I did, however, get a lovely parcel through the post...

It even came with a Christmas card!

At the end of November I commented on a free giveaway on Finally Waking Up's blog and won. Poor Anna has been unwell and the parcel didn't arrive until last week. However, it did mean I got a lovely parcel for Christmas. I hope you're feeling better Anna? I've got a lovely brand new copy of Onion 2031. I can't wait to give the pattern a go once I'm 12,000 miles away from where I am now and my sewing machine is connected up once more!

Also included was a poster with all the other Onion patterns. There are some fantastic patterns on there. I think I might have to learn Danish very quickly! The Onion site has an introduction in English, but everything else in in Danish. It certainly is a site to go in my favourites...

So in the meantime, I hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas and I'll be back in the New Year!
