Joel just assisted me with the draw for the purple spot sampler. The winner is Joanne! Joanne, I have just sent you an email.  Do let me know if you don’t receive it.

Well, I have had a week off work so far and I am starting to feel like a new woman (of course I am also starting to dread the inevitable return to work in 8 days time).  I’ve been living pretty quietly – I caught up with Lucy, my sister; weeded out one of the garden beds (whilst simultaneously ignoring the overgrown grass); stitched on a new Chatelaine piece (Peacock Mystery) and read a couple of books too.  It’s been bliss.  Ahhh!
