My bags are packed……

.
I'm ready to go………..
My plan this holiday is to buy charms for my Pandora bracelet only, no other souvenirs for me. I am also travelling with cabin luggage only. I had a trial pack yesterday. I can easily pack all I need.

I am travelling to Seattle, Vancouver, London, Paris, Venice and back to England.  For my fellow quilters you will be interested to know I am going to the Sisters Quilt show in Oregon. While in England I will go to the The Festival of Quilts in Birmingham and hopefully to York to see Kaffe Fassett's Ancestral Gifts Exhibition.
It's going to be hard to leave our Kit Kats but we will be fortunate enough to visit with some other cats on our travels.Perhaps our boys will sleep the time away and hardly miss us.

If you've been thinking I have been a bit quiet lately it is because I have been getting all my quilting commitments up to date plus all the other things one must do before being away for an extended period of time. I have just finished two quilts for younger members of our family. I hope I can still remember how to quilt when I get home.

In the final countdown now,  7days to go. I will try to blog (by IPad, wish me luck) and Face Book about our travels so please pop back to catch an update.
As I said my bags are packed, I'm ready to go…..

Sunday Sundries

………Once again we have been busy with three WWOOFers visiting us. Two delightful young ladies, Becca and Kat from England and Romain from France.



Becca and Kat made short work of weed matting our bank and mulching it. Romain also helped with this task plus pruning and house maintenance work. After the big bank job Becca and Kat applied themselves to weeding and tidying borders with great enthusiasm.

It wasn’t all hard work, time for checking those all important phones





Jigsaw puzzling

and last but not least Kitty playtime.




While they were here Romain helped me clean out and tidy up our garden room. I found lots of partially used packets of flowers seeds. These have all been mixed up with some finely crushed bark, Ready to be sprinkled around the garden. Hopefully some pretty flowers will emerge in the spring.




We had a frost on Tuesday, I opened the front door to find our very own mini steaming volcano in the courtyard.



Thanks for popping by
