Blogging at last

I have actually decided to blog for the first time in 18 months. I thought it was time to update and tell you what I have been up to lately.
I went on several holidays in 2008. In June I visited Tenerife this is where I go at least once a year it has become home from home to DH and I and it would not be the same without my yearly visit there.These are some photos I took last year.

This sunset is from Los Gigantes



This is another view from Los Gigantes



and here are some gorgous blooms from the entrance to El Marques in Los Gigantes







In August we went to Capetown in South Africa to visit my daughter Debra and her husband Nigel. It was wonderful, we took hundreds of photos and visited so many places,and of course it was so great to be with my daughter on her 25th wedding anniversary, she had no idea we were coming we just turned up at the party, her face was a picture.

Here are some photos of the lovely scenery in South Africa.



This is the cable car that took us to the top of table mountain



This is taken from table mountain looking at Robin Island



A walk on the beach Debra and Nigel and their dog Stella with table mountain in the background



This is Stella. She is such a gorgeous dog.



Lastly just a little ornament that I cross stitched to mark the occasion of Debra & Nigel's 25th wedding anniversary



This is a Blue ribbons design, I have been doing quite a bit of cross stitching since I last blogged and am really enjoying it. I am torn between my love of cross stitch and scrapping. I will post photos of my recent stitching soon when I have done the finishing on them.

I have my moments when I change hobbies, I have also been knitting and crocheting but I have cross stitched for years and am enjoying it so much at the moment.

I knitted these cardigans and crocheted the ponchos for my friends baby






We also visited Portugal in October and took my Mum with us, and then back to Tenerife in November just DH and myself so although I haven't blogged for a long time I have been kept busy.
Have promised myself to not neglect my blog in the future and will be posting stitchy things soon.
