After a looooong time on the market,our house has finally sold!!!!
We are very pleased,but also quite stressed, as all the houses we have liked,have now sold,so we are house-hunting like crazy at the moment.
I haven't even had chance to sit at my craft desk for a few days now & I'm missing my crafting,but I have to concentrate on houses,our buyer is in a rush,his sold a while ago.
I will be crafting as & when I can,just thought I would explain,then you don't think I have gone AWOL!!!!
