New blog layout

Hi everyone

I am still busy with my garden, chickens and now some ducks too but I have managed to do a little sewing by finishing off the quilt for Lilly who will be 1 year old on Tuesday - my how time flies.

I have made a couple of changes to my blog by adding some new pages in the toolbar at the top.  One for my chicken/duck adventures (see latest post about Edna ) and another page for my kitchen garden and the third page is on my baking which will include subjects such as preserves and wine making etc.

Our new home has encouraged me to take up lots of hobbies, that I used to love in my past life, but work and life in general got in the way - a reduction in work travel means that I can now resurrect these lost but not forgotten hobbies.

For the true sewing hardcore, this will be my usual place to find out what I have been sewing.

I hope for the like-minded of you out there, you will venture into my other pages too, and I'll put a brief intro into them here so you know I have posted.

I have a couple of small embroideries to complete on the quilt and I will post that later this weekend.  In the meantime - I have dwarf runner beans and courgettes to plant out and I need to go shopping for mealworm treats for the girls.

Catch you later..............

p/s the new image at the top of the screen is the view from our beautiful new home.........


  1. Nice to see you back. I've checked out your other blogs and look forward to future posts. I see now why you have been busy ;-) Have a great weekend.

  2. Hi there! Sounds like you are happy and busy - good to see you back.

  3. What a collection of interests and hobbies Pauline! Never a dull moment at your house....

  4. You've had quite a 12 months - I was wondering what happened to you.

  5. I've started adding pages to my blog as well. I love your new banner, beautiful photo. All looks great.

  6. How nice to have separate pages for this. You are so productive. I have a few blogs too but difficulty to keep up with them. Too much to do, too little time. So I concentrate on the sewing now. But sure hope you find time to enter more recies.
