Ok so I haven't posted anything here for 12 months! It annoys me when I come across a blog that has been abandoned and this is exactly what I have done. So 2014 will see more posts - whether they will be interesting or not remains to be seen! I have decided not to start making any new quilts in 2014 - I have one definite class at Midsomer Q in January which is sashiko and I had booked a hand sewing class at Busy Bees for the 1st Feb but I have no idea whether that will happen after the dreadful fire a couple of weeks ago. Such a shame as Busy Bees was a lovely shop and place to visit, and both Sue and Sandra had worked so hard to set it all up and keep it going with their lovely fabrics and workshop programmes. I will definitely miss it and hope that it will manage to resurrect itself one day.
Went to see the second part of The Hobbit yesterday. I do think it would have been better if this film had been made before The Lord of the Rings, and why did Legolas appear in it? He wasn't in The Hobbit, or at least I don't think so - I shall have to read it again. But stunning scenery, and the second part much livelier than the first, even if the orcs did get their heads chopped off. Will have to wait another 12 months to see the final instalment.
