Hi everyone

I haven't managed much stitching lately, but I am back on track with charting for my antique sampler 'Margaret Jagger 1824'.  I am about half way through putting it into PC Stitch.  Here is Bindi trying to help me out last night!

Progress stalled with Bluebelle Samplings when we moved house.  Unfortunately, DH and I are not at all happy in our new location.  It's a tough pill to swallow when you realise you've made a big, expensive mistake!  Even the park across the road hasn't been wonderful (we've only been three times in two months and each time an unpleasant experience involving weirdos and dogs!).  So we are looking to move back to the area we came from which is a more family oriented area, rather than a mixture of the weird and the wonderful which you find in city locations.

Our holiday to Fiji rolled around.  I would like to say it was a wonderful, relaxing holiday but little Annabelle was out of her comfort zone.   It was a struggle getting her to eat different foods, and dealing with the friendly people of Fiji (who love paying lots of attention to little ones) was too much for my shy little girl.  She did love digging in the sand, paddling in the water, the frogs which came out at night and sniffing the beautiful, tropical flowers though.  Even though we were only away for 11 days it seemed like a long time, so we felt quite refreshed upon our return.  It was certainly a beautiful island we were on!

Hope you enjoyed the Fiji photos!
