Will Miss you!

Another lovely surprise in the post this week as yesterday this beautiful embellished and stitched ATC arrived from Susan Lenz as part of the Cyber Fyber ATC and postcard swap. The photograph isn't great and it is much more intricate and detailed than it appears with a trace of sparkle over the surface.

And this is the card that I've sent in return to Susan - also done on the embellisher with both hand and machine stitch on the surface.

But I digress from the subject of this post...
I'm going to miss you all as I shall be away for a couple of weeks. But I'm also very, very excited because we're off for some winter sun. My passport is already packed in it's lovely new holder from Sarah. (It's about the only thing that is packed!)

I'm especially excited because I've never been on a holiday like this at this time of year before - there have been weeks on windswept beaches in Cornwall in the past but it's not quite the same as cocktails by the pool.. because this is where we are heading...

Stewart, Jacob and myself are heading off for four nights in Havana... guess that's the architechture and museums bit, and then seven nights at a beach resort... for the rum and scuba diving! The two eldest boys are staying home looking after house and dog, which I'm trying not to worry about... but in the words of my mother this morning... "Well, you are insured, dear!" A comforting thought?
So I really ought to get on with the packing as we leave at 5 am on Sunday and I'm working up in Derby tomorrow. I really will miss you all but will be back with photos and tales to tell! Au Revoir!


  1. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday Gina and I can't wait to see your photos when you return!!

    The rum and scuba diving sounds particularly good :)

  2. Have a great holiday! I'm particularly ingrigued by the idea of simultaneous rum and scuba diving!

  3. Have a great time. You will be missed in Blogland.

  4. Those ATCs are gorgeous Gina! And what's this about missing us? It's us who will miss you - you'll be having far too much fun to notice that we aren't around!!!!

    Have a fantastic time

  5. Just re-read what I had said and realise you can't actually say "it is us who will miss you" but then again to say "it is we who will miss you" sounds rather pompous so you will just have to settle for the bad grammar!
