Sometimes things just keep you away from blogging

 
Welcome to my poor neglected blog.
 
Sadly life has kept me busy lately and I thought I would just explain a little. For the last year my sister in law has been living with terminal cancer. Then last September my brother in law, her partner (my husband's brother) was diagnosed with leukemia. Neither of them drive and live about 45 minutes away so we were doing what we could to help them achieve what they needed.
Just before Christmas she was told that there was nothing more that could be done.
 
Yesterday she passed away peacefully.
 
 
 
There were other family issues going on also and with the school holidays in January, I am afraid that I found it hard to have a few moments to myself.
 
I am hoping now that things will become more stable and more crafty things will be happening and as this blog was a way of recording that - I am hoping that there will be posts a lot more often.
 
I want to say a big thank you to all the lovely people who have sent things to me during the time since Christmas. I will try to catch up with everybody that I can soon.
Many thanks for all the wonderful parcels and gifts. I love them all.
 
Hugs.
