Well have had a busy weekend sewing catching up on my swaps, Dont think that they are too late (hopefully) I have decided in all my wisdom to go back to work after 31/2 years, due to heart problems, mostly i am well but i have my moments, anyway back to spotlight only casual though but jumped in a the wrong time, its stock take so lots of work, better not over do it hehe. I am just trying it out for now if it gets a bit much well will just have to retire again, but just wanted to have a go .. well any way better get my swaps ready to post quilt hugs Sue
