Wet Weekend

We spent this very wet weekend in Dublin, doing some shopping (me) and some working (H), and going to a 30th birthday party (both of us). We had a great time - it's always lovely to see H's parents and sisters - although I didn't have much time for stitching. I started a pincushion from the June issue of The Gift of Stitching, but didn't take any photos as there isn't really much to see. It looks as if H's bid to move us back to Dublin may well come off as he had a very successful day with the company that seems to be interested in hiring him, and I think we are now waiting for them to start to talk figures, so it's possible that we could make a decision by the end of next month. Things happen fast sometimes!

There was a lovely package waiting for me on our return - Quilter's Cloth is a wonderful online fabric shop based IRL in Cambridge, and they have an amazing range of fabrics. And so quick - the package arrived only a day after I'd placed the order! There isn't really much in the way of nifty fabric shops near me, so I've stocked up on fabrics that I can use for finishing. Now all I need is a sewing machine LOL.

Happy stitching!

Hi Munners! Many thanks for your birthday wishes and for visiting my blog! I will add your blog to my rss feeds in Newsgator. :)

On our return flight home from Puerto Rico a couple of weeks ago, I sat next to a young man coming to Seattle on business, from Dublin. He was quite enthusiastic about the business climate there, and about this new venture his company was beginning with Microsoft. So perhaps a move to Dublin will be a great thing for your family! :)
