Christmas 2011

It seems only yesterday that it was the summer holidays and yet I know it wasn't. My job in September settled in to a completely new regime with longer hours and a steep learning curve. Stitching in the evenings faltered and blogging thoughts dried up (plus blogging and Mac computers aren't compatible). Finally two weeks ago I finished the last 2 of 5 samplers I have made for friends who left in the summer term. It was a big commitment and one that I hope doesn't happen again in such demand.
We have just spent Christmas with my parents in Dorset and have now returned home as Tony has to work today and tomorrow. My main Christmas present was this beautiful Rolliecord camera - it was made in 1958 and uses 120 film (medium format) which I am looking forward to using. Back soon Jane x

Nice camera.
What do you mean Macs and blogging are not compatible? That's all we use in our house. Macs are the best for everything!
Have a great new year with a little more down time - don't we all wish for that!

What a fun present that camera will be!

Happy New Year, Jane. I've been lax on the blogging as well. Sometimes it seems that we can either live our lives or write about it. I'm going to try to do both, again.
