How time flies...

Apologies, apologies, my most humble apologies for neglecting this blog. This past month has been so hectic I don't honestly know where it has gone. 

First of all some pictures from our first attempt at making dumplings. The afternoon was so much fun and it was great to work with the boys and produce something so delicious. The surreal moment of the afternoon was when one of my pupils was talking to his mother in China via Skype, asking her for instructions and showing her the quality of our chopping, which according to her left a lot to be desired. It really is a small world.

Dumpling no 100
The one perfect dumpling

The half term break bought my sister and her two lovely children to England and what a lovely time we had. On the first day we visited the Craft, Hobby + Stitch International show at the NEC in Birmingham. We spent a very long time admiring the fabric on show, especially the Kokka and Echino. They had a fabulous quilt on show and some really cool bags. This filled us with inspiration so a day of the holiday was dedicated to sewing. I will post some pictures of our creations tomorrow as the pictures are at home and I am not.

It was great to see my sister and spend time with her and the children and hopefully I will be seeing them again soon!

Bed time rounds call.
