Hello again!

Hi everyone!

I'm back from the wonderful & rugged S.E. coast of N.I.  And I'm pleased to report that the sun shone (most days) and we had v.little rain - hooray!

That meant lots of time spent on 'our' beach, which is the stoney, rock-pool exploring, beach combing type of beach - the kids spent hours on it.

I did manage to get some sewing done too, and surprisingly a lot of hexie hand sewing & crocheting in the evenings (pics to follow shortly).

I'm slowly but surely catching up with everyone in blog/flickr-land.  Thanks to everyone who left comments on my pre-programmed posts (relieved it actually worked!).  Sorry if I haven't managed to reply to all of them (there were 56 in my Inbox!).

In the meantime, I'll bore you with some inspirational pics from our forest walk - I see patchwork patterns everywhere!

Hope you all had a great week!
