Hello friends ,
Well we are back after a few weeks away on holiday , feel good and rested and ready to go again. 
It is always nice to get away but so good to get back .
No sewing or Internet ! this was hard for me but we really needed the rest .
Can't wait to sort out my sewing later I have loads I want to get started on , but need to sort out some Christmas sewing first.
While away I have another new GGS so can't wait to see him soon.
Our calendar is full this month so it is going to be a busy one but I will still find time for my stitching .
Well we are well into Autumn and Christmas is just around the corner.
So thought I had better pop in to say hello .
Before I get bogged down with all my washing and ironing.
So here is a little Christmas ornament I stitched before we jetted off .

I am working away on lots of other Christmas ornaments and hope to be back with another at the weekend.
So for now a few holiday flowers and photos  .

 I really wish we could grow these flowers outside but only inside here in the UK.

Now we are back home I am so cold and we had our first frost this morning , so we are trying to get use  to the temps.
I just made a lovely veg and bacon soup with crusty bread to warm us up.
I have allot of catching up with all your blogs , but hope to get to all by the end of the week .
Happy Autumn to you al .
