ATC Swap 2

Ali at VeryBerryHandmade has been running another ATC swap( thank you Ali!) and the deadline for posting was today. The theme was Autumn - I hope my partner likes it!

Part 2 that never happened

Well that's not strictly true - I finished the ATC and send it off to my partner in good time. Here's the finished article - I really enjoyed working on such a small scale.

And here's the lovely card I received:
As to not blogging? There has just been too much happening - some good, some not so good.

We had a chilly half term in Yorkshire and returned to gird our loins for the final summer term, which always seems to be very full on. Sadly in the midst of this my fathers health deteriorated rapidly and he passed away in early July. I am grateful I was able to make the journey North to be with him and my mother at this point, and to be with my Mum for the first few days afterwards. We've had two more family bereavements since then, and work has been stressful and hectic too. So I haven't blogged as I really haven't had anything to say. I'm not entirely sure I have now (if I'm honest)!
