Did you think I had disappeared? Well I have been here all this time but have just had a little hiatus from blogging but now I am back and have lots of new pictures to show you over the next little bit of time. 

It is autumn in the highlands and the trees are so beautiful.  It has been FREEZING over the last week or so but today is gorgeous and quite warm, even the bulbs are starting to show their little green shoots.

Today I have had the most wonderful day with my friend Jean (Linen and Raspberry) we went to visit Balmain and the wonderful new shop Calico and Ivy - what a delight - I was so excited and it is so lovely with lots of things to get the creative juices flowing.

Of course now i have got back into it and had a couple more lessons on editing my very amateur photos and getting things where they should be my computer has had a little hissy fit so I have had to leave this post without lots of photos that I really wanted to share. I am actually trying to complete this post on my girl's Apple Mac Book Pro that she has very kindly let me use as long as I am super careful and tender with her baby!  So that's it short and sweet and without everything I wanted to include but at least it is a start.  Wish me luck with the computer because I am sure I am going to need it.  

Hopefully be back soon, wow it really is a journey! V xx

    1. Hi Jacqui
      I have searched for you email address, changed wallets and must be in old one but I have put that away somewhere safe! Hope this works. LOVE the supergoof blog and found a couple of more lovely one's from that one. Can't find the heart quilt though. Was great talking to you yesterday I miss cricket not that I get to go that often not the same at Berrima. My email is will keep an eye out for that aqua/brown spot for you. I also love those little houses just gorgeous and those thimble pieces must be tiny think they must be over cardboard. Better go I have a magazine project to finish the notes for. Enjoy your family time, Lots of love Vicki
