Hello and welcome to my second attempt at setting up a blog - I was happy with my first attempt but I forgot my password and couldn't retrieve it or set up a new one so a new account and a new blog it had to be! I will be sharing my interests - gardening, quilting and embroidery - and getting to know (hopefully) other like minded bloggers at the same time.
I will be back in a day or two with some photos of my garden and maybe some quilting ones too!
