Holiday Week 6

The penultimate week of my 'holiday' before starting my new job.  I think I've got to the stage where the novelty of a long holiday is beginning to wear off - heaven help me when I get to retirement!  I have been doing a tidy of my fabric stash and weeding out some "fugly" fabrics to await a table top sale sometime or to go to the bring and buy table at the next area meeting.

This last week of my holiday will be a week away and tomorrow David and I are off to Cornwall with 4 days in St Ives and another couple of days a bit further inland in Camborne.  No doubt there will be a lot of photos taken from being out and about all week.


  1. have a lovely holiday and hope all goes well with the job xx

  2. Have a great holiday and good luck with starting the new job.

  3. Your owl and baby are lovely. My family originated in Camborne so I feel a connection to Cornwall and particulalry that area. Hope you have a good time. Good luck with the new job.

  4. have a lovely time, and look forward to the New job xxx
