I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

March SAL Updates.... April Stitching Goals....

Hello! Easter has come and gone... as has our ocean cruise that we booked a year ago.... and now April has arrived!  I was trying to think of something silly to do for April Fools Day - but as I am a bear with a very little brain (Pooh Bear reference) which is not working properly lately, I gave up!!!

My update below is serious and I promise you not an April Fool's Day trick! :o0
