I think I may have solved it, keep your fingers crossed.


I dug this picture out just to show you, my friends, that Spring is coming.  I did a series of pictures showing the 4 seasons, and I always meant to hang them together as a group, but they are still waiting in the box for DH to get his hammer and nails out.  I think I am going to save up for a new camera, as I can't get really good closeups with this camera. 


A group of women in my village are sewing a large wall hanging, we are planning to include as many of the more significant buildings in the village as we can.  This is my contribution it has been done with applique, unfortunately the colour looks a bit washed out.  The building used to be the village Primary School until they built a new one.  My father went there back at the beginning of the last century, I did back in the 40s and 50s and my children did until the new school was built.  The original building was first used back in the 19th century, with bits added on as the village grew.  It is now used as the village community centre, with lots of different activities for young and old. 
Isn't it amazing you start the new year thinking I have only 1 project to do and finish (the one above) when all of a sudden you have 3 more projects to add to the list.  I have finished the wall hanging one, and I am busy doing a piece for the next exchange, plus the present for a friend and a table runner for Christmas for my DD.  I guess that is the same for all of us, but as women we can cope.  We are frequently doing 2 jobs at the same time NO PROBS!  Hopefully I can leave my thinking cap on the side as hopefully the uploading of photos has been solved (tounch wood).  I will be back with you soon.
