I had an early (for me) start this morning as I had to take the car to the garage for MOT and service by 8.30. Normally at that time I'm still lingering over my toast and coffee and thinking about what I'm going to do with the day. As a treat for being so good I bought one of those yummy Sicilian Lemon Muffins from Greggs as I walked home through town....what I want to know is why don't Greggs sell stotties in all their branches? I think they should - it would mean I didn't have to buy half a dozen to stuff the freezer with when we're on the way back from Northumberland, or beg anyone coming this way to bring with them. "Yes, of course you can stay - but can you pop in to Greggs and buy some stotties on your way?"
There are loads of Northumbrians and their descendants living in our town. Apparently many came looking for work in the 1920s around the time of the Jarrow marches. Not long after my family moved south my mum stood in the PO waiting to collect ehr Family Allowance, the man behind her recognised her accent and asked where she was from. Turned out his family had once lived a couple of streets away from my Grandma. Small world.
Anyway, I shall endeavour to put thoughts of a bacon stotty out of my head (difficult as my mouth is watering at the idea). now and concentrate on getting this blog done as I need to get Mr Robo started on cutting the bits for my DCM card or it won't be finished for tomorrow.
Today on Bubbly Scrumptious I've got a card to share. It was only after I'd finished making it that I realised it would make quite a nice canvas or a wall hanging of some sort - which would have been lovely to hang in the spare room where my sewing cabinet lives. Never mind, maybe I'll do the larger collage version another time.

Is it me, or do you think I'm having a bit of a Turquoise phase at the moment? Scroll back through the recent posts and you'll see what I mean!
Right, stop waffling Kathy, it's now 10.30 and you must get that card done!
Honestly, I can be soooo bossy sometimes.
