I Love Pincushions!

I bet you've guessed that already, with my last few posts having all been pincushions of one sort or another...lol!  This is a cute little quickie I made at the weekend.  The free tutorial can be found here, on the Very Berry Handmade blog.


I also have some big news to share!  Colin has had a promotion within the company he works for.  His new position is as Group Diving Manager, at Head Office, Sharjah, in the Middle East. The new position means that I can also accompany him, so we will get to see each other every day and won't be separated for long periods of 6 weeks at a time any more!  It's more then likely that by the end of the year I will have gone out to be with him, living in Dubai for several years.  In the meantime he's due home next week for hopefully about 10 days (not long since he's been away for 2 months).  I can't wait to see him, but as you can imagine we have lots to plan, organise etc, etc!  

I'm hoping to be back blogging again soon with a little freebie I stitched a few months ago, and should have finished by now!  

Thank you for visiting. :o)
