Hello my friends. I trust this finds you well and – if you are here in Britain – enjoying the sun! I have had quite a week – so only the one photo this time. I haven’t been working at my desk on the landing, although I need to get there, as it is a grandson’s birthday soon so a card is needed, and I have a commission for a leaving card. But, I have re-organised the dining room so I can work there. Yes, it’s that time of year when I need to cut out 100 bag fronts, 100 linings, and 100 straps! Done 90 fronts and 30 straps so far… so slowly getting there.

So now there are lots of scraps on the floor; it needs hoovering, more bits need cutting out, and at some point it would be nice to sit at the table again for a meal… but there we go – my workdesk this week!

I will be around to visit this week – but it may not be until sometime on Thursday. Tomorrow I am driving into Cheshire – I’m off to visit Mr and Mrs D, carrying a huge pile of their mail, to help launch them into the next season of their life! Yes!!! They moved back onto the boat today. Their plan is to cruise slowly (Mr D’s word!) across country, heading East, hoping that by the time they arrive there, a completion will be about to take place on their new house purchase! I certainly hope so for their sake – it must seem a long time since they last saw their own settee!

So there we are this week folks. Not much to report at all.

Take care. God bless.

    sounds like you have had a busy time with all the bags…what do you do with all the bags? I haven’t been here in so long I am clueless! I read that Mr.+Mrs. D were at their daughters last week. I bet the really do long for a chance sit in their own home again. Even an well fitted out caravan or boat isn’t home. Have a great week! Vickie #36

    Hi Margaret, no eating at the dining table, you have my sympathy. With a sofa taking up much of the dining room we have had to squeeze ourselves in to eat of ours … eating from a tray for every meal is not much fun. Enjoy your trip to Cheshire and wish Mr & Mrs D bon voyage from us … hope all goes well for the completion too. Hugs, Elizabeth x #25

    another episode of fun and creativity. Always nice. Hope the weather is kind to your friends. Today we have real rain, we need it as we are again in drought! Now to find sensible shoes for the wet! Monica # 30.

    Wow – 100 bags! For sale? Anyway, that’s a lot of work! I’m sure that first meal you have at your table once you are finished will taste very good! Have fun visiting Mr and Mrs D, I hope they have a great time on their tour! Have a great week, Lindart #29

    Hi Margaret, I am enjoying the sun! I was almost tempted to sit in the summer house and ‘do my rounds’ but it’s not quite that warm. You have been a busy bee again this week. Enjoy your day out tomorrow. I am off to North Wales on Friday for the weekend, so I hope the sun stays shining! Have a lovely week Heather x #28

    Hi! I am sorry I did not get around to you last week! I don’t know what happened to the week. The week’s are just flying by so quickly! It sounds like you are getting a lot done though! Good for you! Happy Day! #24

    Hi Margaret- Yippee, looking forward to seeing you in September! So happy to hear that Mr & Mrs D should be getting their new house in the near future. At least the cleaning up should be easy with laminate floor. I remember when I had my old craft room, it had carpet, and getting it clean was a nightmare! Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #8 XxX

    This is a beautiful “quiet before the storm” picture! Wishing you the best of luck with making all those bags and applaud you for doing so! Also glad to hear the good news on Mrs. D’s side 🙂 Will congratulate them later as well! Have a wonderful week! xoxo Cheetarah #21

    Enjoy your time with Chris and husband (Adrian?). Remember me to them please. I do hope they soon get settled on the boat and that things work our re the new house quickly. It will seem like all new furniture by the time they get in. My Margaret, you have been (and still are) busy. There is a saying about nimble fingers and God’s work but it slips my mind at the moment. Stay safe and well. God Bless, Neet 9 xx

    I’ve cut out some bag stuff too (not quite up to your 100 however!) and will show it on next week’s blog. Have a wonderful time in Cheshire with Mr & Mrs D, give them my love! HUgs LLJ 11 xxx

    Hi Margaret, that sounds like a Marathon! I’m guessing its some kind of Easter project? Have a safe drive and hope you get to sit at your table again soon! Happy Wednesday Cindy #14
