Ch-ch-ch-changes

David Bowie said that. 

If there is one constant it is change.....not sure who said that.....but it is true, don't you agree?

The change here is that I no longer have school children....no more notices....meetings...books....excursions....lunches to make.  And best of all, exams are over, at least for now!

The air is somehow clearer and stress levels have decreased quite a bit (both mine and the lovely girl who made it through a rather stressful year. Well done I say).

She is one HAPPY GIRL..................and now  having fun and planning her 18th birthday party which is just around the corner.

The boy child is also having fun, but not here....he's in London or maybe in Italy by now taking an intensive music course.  So lucky!  But I miss him already and he won't be back until February.  
As I said - changes.

And me - well I've been in and out a little and about to head back out tomorrow, so I thought I would post a couple of pictures before I go.


First up, the last two Caswell Blocks.  All done now and waiting for a border.

 




Second, the centre panel for Ann Dagg. Poor legless birds!  These were a bit tricky.....not sure what I will do about that yet, until I figure it out, they will have to keep flying.


 And last but not least, the final block of Imperial Blooms.  It has been sitting on my desk for close to a year...I was dreading attempting the fluffy bit in the middle. In the end it wasn't too scary and came out OK.


Have to dash........see you when I get back.

All your work is so beautiful as always! Big changes in your family indeed. Yours sounds like mine. I'm still getting used to the empty nest. It's quite an adjustment! Of course, yours isn't empty quite yet. Funny we both have boys who do music. Yours plays bass too, right?

Hope the 18th birthday party was a huge success!
