Hi Y’all

I hope that you are all doing well. Wow, been busy. Sorry for not posting pics of the cat and mouse quilt sooner, but they are here now…

This is exactly as the pattern asks for fabric wise. The quilting is too in the center, but on the border The pattern shows quilting along every line, but as it was a custom order and I was running out of time, I just did some large stippling. It still looks ok though. I am pleased with it. The only thing that I am not pleased with is the person who bought it left no feedback what so ever. Didn’t even send me an email to say that it arrived. I know the have it though as the day they ordered this quilt they had bought another one of me, which I posted. They didn’t leave feedback or let me know that it arrived, so when it was time for posting this quilt I sent it signed for so I could track it on the internet. So I know they have this one… Aren’t some people strange…

Any way, the main reason I have been away for so long is that we went back to Bahrain for the Eid celebrations to see Hubbies family and surprise them. They were all a bit shocked. It was nice to be back for a while. But back in the UK now. It has been very wet since we got back and I’m not sure if I’m jetlagged or if I have got this SADS thingy from the depressing weather, but I can’t get my backside into gear. I am so tired. Feeling a little better now though.

The socks that I knit for Baby H, I haven’t taken pics of Hubbies socks yet (Bad blogger), let me know if you see a trillion mistakes or dropped stitches. I’m sure you knitters will see something…LOL

Baby H’s socks. They are a bit long in the leg, but I followed the pattern and this is what I got. Baby H loves them. He calls them his rainbow socks. So what can I say?

Speak soon, hopefully it won’t be as long next time.



Can you remember the set that I made for my husbands niece. Well she has had a girl. Yesterday we went to Saudi Arabia to visit them. She is absolutely beautiful, as all new babies are, but she is lovely and so tiny. The set is in full use, which is great. I’m sorry but I can’t post pictures. But I have taken some pics on the way home.                                                                                                                                                Bahrain-Saudi Border This is the border on the King Fahad Causeway, going back to Bahrain. It’s not very clear as it was taken with my mobile while the car was moving.                                                                                                 Al Abraj RestaurantThis is a restaurant called Al Abraj (meaning ‘up high’). There is another one with red lights on the Bahrain side of the causeway. But I couldn’t get a good picture of it. There are lots of these restaurants all over Bahrain, but they don’t quite look like this one. Lovely food though! We took my mum to an Al Abraj while she was here, in the capital, Manama.  Three years I have been in Bahrain and this is the first time that I have been to Saudi, it’s pretty much like Bahrain, except there is more space and a lot less people. Which I liked. The men drive like the are either escaping from some horrendous beast behind them or they have a passenger who is having a heart attack. They have to be in front. Women are not allowed to drive there. Which I don’t mind, I get to have a break. Do not to go there if you have a queasy  stomach, it will be in your throat all the time. All in all we had a nice day, but I’m glad that I live in Bahrain.
