Beata, these are so pretty, I am completely taken with them. How to choose a favourite. I think it has to be the Amy Butler blue floral with the light blue crochet. I am now off to peruse Amy and Heather fabrics just to see what else they do.
It won't be as traumatic as last year. Hope you got a rug. The nicest floral one I've seen is Laura Ashley. I love it.

Good Lord, 152 comments at this stage!I am spending Easter Sunday with my husband's family as it is the 1 year anniversary mass of my father -in-law. So that will be a poignant day. Then I am hoping to get to Donegal on Monday or Tuesday to stay at our house.

My 9 yr old came down the stairs just before Christmas wearing her school uniform and bright red lipstick! Fine if she was just mucking about, but we were going to her church carol service and she was in the school choir! I think the neighbours probably heard my shrieks, lol!

Agh! My washing pile is at the back door, so everyone sees it when they wade past/through it! That was such a thoughtful gift for you. I got a lot of CK stuff, a sewing box, pin cushion, Make, book, needle case; and I have a feeling that my sister has bought me a sticker pack of some kind as a birthday present. I am enjoying the buzz of work again, but find that come lunch time I feel we should all be going home; no stamina.

Hi Jane, Just wante d to reply to your blog today, even though i have been keeping tabs a bit, I haven't been writing messages. When you said you were fretting it just reminded me of how you explained this to us before you went to N. Zealand. Your tendency to worry. I hope this doesn't lie too heavily with you this week and in the next few weeks. I know it's a big deal, and I'm sending you warm wishes.
