I haven't done any crafting for a while and won't until we've taken all my craft stash up to Suffolk. We still have to find a buyer for our house :( have had a few viewers but the housing market is very bad and it's hard for buyers to get a mortgage too. Still fingers crossed we've only had our house on the market for nearly 7 weeks - it seems much longer than that!
Once we move permanently end of August (take the rest of our larger items up) Suffolk will be our main home and our house will be the place we sleep in whilst we're working - until the house is off our hands.
So, please pray we get a buyer soon.
I hope to show you soon a couple of layouts I made a while back but couldn't show you them as I've made them into wall hangings for my sister as a surprise. They're at Mum's awaiting my sister's arrival.

A view of Sheffield Park house from the lake, the house is not open to the public but the gardens are and they are beautiful:
I adore this photo of David. It was taken whilst we were on a steam train on the Bluebell Railway in Sussex.
And lastly a photo of me taken in the chocolate shop in Buxton, Derbyshire when took a trip there whilst at my sister's in Cheshire:
The reason we haven't been around is that whilst we were in Cheshire we had a phone call from an estate manager in Suffolk to say she had a bungalow becoming available and were we interested. We took a dash over there and loved the bungalow so will be renting it from 18th July. We still have to sell our house but we have high hopes. In the meantime we are busy sorting out everything we've accumulated over 19 years! Lots of trips to the dump and charity shops. We've finished the bedroom and nearly finished the bathroom so that's good. With us doing it now we won't have to worry so much later on when we do sell the house and it will mean more weekends in Suffolk - yay. Our bungalow is only about a 5 minute drive from the beach so we're very excited about that and it's in a very quiet location.
I haven't done hardly any crafting although I did sort out my crafting stash and bits and pieces I hadn't used for a few years I gave to a nearby secondary school who were very pleased with everything.
That's all for now. I'm rather stuffed up with cold so will rest now, hope to write more soon.
