Dear Friends...

As you may know, life for me has changed quite a bit lately with the girls now being home schooled.  Well, things just aren't the same any longer.  It's not longer 'Just About!'  So I've decided to say goodbye to my blog.  Yes I'm afraid it's time for a group hug my dears. 

But first I must say a huge thank you to all of you, for your friendship and time you have taken to write all those treasured and very lovely comments on each of my posts. 
Thank you very much for teaching me so much and for introducing me to the likes of old fashioned doilies!  Hubby doesn't thank you for that one sadly but No.4 does.

Thank you for getting me into quilting so I could make all my girls' quilts and pretty wall hangings.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to make and give gifts for the Queensland flood victims. 

Thank you for always having such nice things to say about what I had to show and tell about.  Thank you for all the wonderful swaps too!

Thank you for being there at all our birthdays and sending birthday wishes to us all.

Thank you for teaching me how to crochet and encouraging me when it all went badly.  I have since found out that crochet isn't my thing, but I do have a big crochet blanket to show for my efforts. 

Thank you to all my friends who I have met on here (and sometimes for real) and have been such wonderful company.  May we still keep in touch.

Thank you for all the gifts you sent when I called out for help for the Christchurch Earthquake families.

Thank you for putting colour and homemade goodness into our home. 

I've had such a lovely time getting to know you all and spending time with you.  I will still be popping by your blogs and perhaps writing the odd message - although I find I can't with many of your blogs since getting a laptop.  Must be the settings or something, but it's very frustrating. 

Thank you for everything!!!!  I feel a bit sad about this but it must be done.  Who knows, I might be back one day.  Big hugs to you all.  xxx
