Saying Hello and Wishing You an Early Spring

Helebore welcomes Spring

First 2015 bloom to celebrate the awaking of my spring garden. And my return to blogging.

Sorry to be gone so long. I've been healing from health challenges brought on right at the beginning of the new year by the stress of the past several months of 2014. I am happy to say that I am making great progress toward being back to my self and those of you who have missed me in this space should be seeing more of me going forward.

I have managed to stay a little more connected on IG as it is a much easier way to stay in touch. But I miss my blog.

We probably won't get around to a new header for awhile so I hope you can live with the Holiday theme just a little longer. You can always go to Flicker for seasonal and specific craft themes. I've created a sort of a library over there of all craft tutorials shared here since 2008. And Pintrest and Ravelry are good places to go to view many of the projects I have shared.

Thank you for staying in touch and your many notes of love and concern. You will never know how much they have meant to me.

Dear Pam - having sent a few

Dear Pam - having sent a few emails to you and realised they landed in your spam (I received a lovely email from Diane telling me you were unwell), I am so happy to check in and find you are back! I do hope you are feeling much better, and would like you to know that I have been concerned, and thinking of you. Very pleased to know you are feeling better, and back! Lots of love! Xxx

I have not called but I have been thinking of you. I was so happy to see you on IG and thank you for commenting. I was glad to see notice in my email of this new post. I missed my blog, too.

Life can get treacherous. But we are not alone.

Love you too Chrissy!  And yes IG has been a great way to keep up with everyone even tho it took me some time to be able to negotiate those miniscule keys again.   

And your mentioning that we are not alone - so so true.  I am still stunned by the amount of affection and support surrounding me from everyone in this space and on IG.  Every note, post comment, card and gift have both humbled me and reminded me of just how fortunate I am to have found so many lovely freiends all over the world.

Welcome home, xxx Gill
