Time to say goodbye............


It's time to say goodbye.....................
to my beautiful craft room!

Ahhh, I bet you all thought I was meaning my blog!

After many, many years of thinking about moving to France we have finally plucked up the courage to pack our things and put our plans into action. I was very sad to leave my beautiful craft room but very happy to leave the house we sold  and start our new adventure, but be assured I will be planning a new craft room for the new house.

We will be house hunting in central France, we have seen a few we like and will soon be starting the process of buying a house. We wanted a life in the country with chickens to have fresh eggs for breakfast and a nice big vegetable patch to grow our own veg and of course the house will have lots of roses planted in the garden, as you know I do love my roses!

We are currently travelling around England  and  we are expecting to be in France soon, I will keep you posted.

Goodbye for now or as my new french friends would say,  au revoir pour le moment!   

PS, I won't forget to design October mini cat!

This is wonderful news, you are doing what lots of your fans are dreaming of. I love the movie "Two for the Road" with Audrey Hepburn. I was house sitting in the country for 10 days and when I came home I was so so depressed, to much concrete; want nature instead. gasuski@mac.com
