I'm feeling a bit blah...........

It's been a busy week since I saw that lamb - my classes are all coming to the end of the current session and I am busily planning my new programme that will start in August, as well as a new programme of workshops.
Add that to my usual days in the shop, my classes and a sore tum that has lasted all week, and I am pooped.
Then there was my trip to Glasgow on Thursday evening - my friend Janet and I set off on a fairly straightforward trip to meet the other members of the West Central Scotland Modern Quilters' Guild.aka Katy (Littlest Thistle), Fiona (PoppyMakes) and Kat (Domestic Kat) - it was great to meet you girls. However, what should have been a one hour journey, turned into 3, courtesy of Scotrail and a coal train that apparently had a fire on the track between our train and Glasgow Central. Them's the breaks.
Oh, and my daughter has only a week to go to her due date for producing grandbaby no. 1. No wonder my tum is out of sorts!
 I must apologise and say thank you to Siobhan who blogs here - she has kindly awarded me this:-

This award is given to bloggers with less than 200 followers and there are rules-

*Thank your award presenter on your blog: Thank you again Siobhan.
*Link back to the blogger who presented you with the award
*Copy and paste the award to your blog
*Present the Liebster Award to 5 blogs that have fewer then 200 followers that you think deserve to be recognized
*Let them know by leaving a comment on their blog

So I would like to pass the award on to 5 blogs that I follow regularly and enjoy immensely.

In no particular order........

1 Helen, my lovely friend who I tend to think of as Archie's mum.
2.Susan, who is mad as a hatter, great quilter & cook and just gets in under the wire with 193 followers!!!
3.Judith is the author of Rags to Bags, we have teaching P & Q in common, and also lots of rain - check out her great blog.
4.My next goes to Jan over at Isisjem, that's a clue to her location. Jan's blog seems to have disappeared from my Reader list so I have to catch up on her posts - you should too.
5. My final award goes to Jennifer at the Enchanted Bobbin - Jennifer is in Canada and I met her thro my Mystery Quilt project. She makes lovely quilts and posts great pics of her photogenic cats.

I seem to have run out of time this week to keep up with my blog reading, so my apologies for my lack of comments. Will get back into my stride soon................


  1. Aww thank you :-) - it's funny you should mention my disappearing from your reader because I've just looked (and I know I'm really really tired) but you're not on my blog roll - which is where I do my reading from. I've just scrolled up and the follow button is still available so I think it's unfollowed you without consulting me harrumph!

  2. Great choices!
    Bloody trains!

    I am getting excited for you and your family!

  3. Oh what a bummer with those trains. Hope it was all worth it though when you finally got to meet up. Thank so much for your nomination. I've already had this award, but I'm touched you thought of me. Fingers, toes and everything else crossed for your daughter! Jxo

  4. Ooh, had forgot about the imminent arrival, hope all goes well! Glad you got home again though, and that it didn't take quite as long!

  5. Oh, goodness! First of all, best wishes to your daughter -- what an exciting time for your (growing) family.

    Thanks so much for the sweet words about my quilts and kitties, and for the nomination. I am very flattered :)

    Wishing you many peaceful days,


  6. Thank you so much! I hadn't realised the new arrival was so imminent - good luck! Hope your tummy feels better soon - there's a tummy bug going round down here and some people seem to get the tummy pains without the 'other symptoms'...lasts about a week so if you've got that you're on the home stretch!!

  7. Ooh good luck with impending grannyhood! Hope you feel a bit better soon too.

  8. You will LOVE being a grandmother! It's one of my favorite things ever in my life to spend time with any or all of mine...each is ridiculously special, precious, beautiful/handsome, talented, smart...well, you get the picture! My only regret is none of them as close as i'd like and we have to skype, chat or use some other electronic way to spend some time together mostly but every minute is wonderful

  9. Sounds like a week! I am very excited for you about the grandbaby, I hope all goes well.
