Good afternoon, all (well, it's still afternoon here anyway). I've had a lovely day out and about with a good friend. We spent the morning at the sit-and-stitch at our LYS. I always feel so fortunate to have a shop here where we can chat and share with fellow stitchers. And, of course, I came away with a new project in mind and the yarn picked out to make it. :roll:
Polly, I'm glad you found your missing notebook and could straighten out the safety box issue. It can sometimes seem overwhelming when several so-called "small" problems happen at the same time. It's clear you feel a lot better now. Good for you.
Blackberry vodka, Josephine? I don't drink much, but I could certainly savor that as a dessert drink along with a bit of dark chocolate. Tasty.
June, your gifts for Charlotte are so lovely! I'm especially drawn to the dream catcher.
And most importantly, Lisa, my condolences on your great aunt's passing. I know words are insufficient at such a time, but I do hope there is comfort in your memories of her.
Ps bought the main fabric in quilting shop in Halifax, NS, the little print in Whitby and the spotty is a bit left over from the lining of my asj! Lots of nice memories. Not forgetting the stitch marker from Indiana xx
Beautiful work, and how lovely that it's made up of memories!
it's a lovely photo, and they have the same hairstyle. But not the beard!
None of them look too sure of themselves; it's such a natural picture.
"it's a lovely photo, and they have the same hairstyle." I had the very same thought! :lol: Thanks for saying it, Saxy.

Hi Katy! That was a lovely reunion but a bad homecoming, were they insured? Like the second part of your message!!!
They do have renters insurance, thank goodness (that only took about three years of Mom-nagging after she moved to New York :lol: ). It's possible the building management may be responsible as they had complained several times about the faulty circuit breaker and the manager had promised to call an electrician. We'll see what happens.
How soon do you leave, June? Just a matter of days, isn't it? Don't stress about your packing. As long as you have your ID, some money, and a load of craft goodies, you'll be fine! I'm sure you can buy any forgotten bits in NZ.
Good morning, just having my cup of coffe. Going to do some sewing and crochet today and maybe walk down to the shops.
Katy, it's really nnice you are back with us, hope you are doing ok.
Thank you, Josephine. I am doing pretty well now -- went through a bad patch for a while, but things are getting better. Knitting helps. :D

Adding positive vibes to those already sent.
Started ironing and my iron blew up & knocked out all the lights, etc in the kitchen.....frightened the life out of me too! Don't like ironing, but I like unexpected bangs and blue flashes even less! :shock: Looking on the bright side I can't iron until tomorrow when my new iron gets delivered, and I got it for free from Tesco as I had coupons which are worth double at the moment!
Terrifying!! I'm glad you weren't injured.
Sugarsugar - So pleased to hear that your mum is quite settled in her new home. It must be a load off your mind too.
I agree. It sounds like she's doing quite well there.
Happy Birthday, Marianne!!

Marianne who has only infrequently been able to come to the Tea Party in recent years, has her Birthday today, it was so lovely to see her enjoy the KAP!
Happy Happy Day! Marianne!
Hope to see you back at the tea party from time to time.
Such fun seeing the pictures from KAP!! Keep them coming, everyone. It's like seeing the whole tea party come to life. :D
Caught up after spending most of the weekend away from the computer. DD and her BF flew back to NYC Saturday evening. Sorry to see them go as I didn't have a great deal of time with them this trip. Had to share them with lots of friends and family, but it was lovely to have them here a little. When they got home, in the early hours of Sunday, they discovered that an electrical circuit in the apartment had failed and everything in the fridge/freezer was ruined! :cry: What a way to end a vacation!
Sending sympathies to those who have had recent losses and down times. Purly, I hope the oxygen therapy will help you feel better very soon. And I do hope that the coming babies, travels and such will brighten everyone's time this week.
Wow! I was away from the computer most of the past few days and finally had time to finish catching up just now. I had a nice little list of notes to comment on various things and then Caren, you just blew me out of the water with your great news!! I've been lurking pretty much for the last few months, but have kept track of the tea party and had a feeling something was up (as I'm sure many others did, too). Congratulations!!!! What an exciting new chapter in your life this will be. And James certainly does look like a nice fellow. :-) Wow!
Starting again is a big transition. it was hard to... (
"...especially the challenging ones" is a refrain I have heard many times from teachers I know. To my mind, being willing to take on that challenge is a sign of a good teacher.
