Or, the year that made my hair go grey!
This year marks the one year anniversary of our move to the Big Smoke.
It has been a challenging period of our lives...both rewarding and exhausting, but life is settling and, although I miss my friends I am glad we have relocated.
Put simply, I like it here.
There is still some work needing to be done outside, but it will happen, no rush.
Looking clinically at the last eighteen months, we have sold our home, relocated, renovated another, been homeless, found new jobs, finished a university degree...major stress life events...all on top of each other. And that doesn't include the myriad of family things that have happened.
Aaaah...don't you just love a challenge!
So from here on in, Cardygirl returns to being a sewing blog with a pinch of family and a dash of house stuff.
Thank you for your patience in sharing our journey.
Now, here we go!
Last night I began this Blackbird Designs cross stitch...Midnight Ride.
It is just the right time to do a spooky cross stitch as the bats and possums are making so much noise in the trees behind our house. I went outside spotlighting and saw the brushy tailed possums sitting on the branches, then the bats started flying around....creepy! I came inside!
I have always been intrigued by Halloween and loved being in the US for it last year.
Here are some little trinkets I purchased there, I am looking forward to making a little display as I believe that some children Trick or Treat around here...fun! Might look for some pumpkins and encourage the spiders!
Here is the obligatory cat photo...why oh why in a whole house is this the best place to sit?
Work this morning, then mowing ( I am obsessed by a neat lawn) and walking the dog this afternoon...so I think tomorrow might have to have some sewing time...good idea?
