You may wonder where I have been!?

I haven't blogged for some weeks (well over a month then), reason being I took a rather long holiday to ........ Tanzania!! Sara and I this year have spent our holiday's with my husband who is currently working in Dar es Salaam. This was the view from the veranda every day. The boats are called Dhow.

I did get around to doing some reading and managed to read all the Steig Larsson millenium collection. Hardly any quilting has been done other than I did do one of the blocks of stitchery from "Busy Little Christmas Elves" by Gail Pan. And also started a cross stitch on a christmas theme!

This years holiday's was all about relaxing and doing nothing other than spending some quality time with my DH and DD.
Sara and I would relax by the pool during the week and at weekends when my DH wasn't working we went to Zanzibar, a few island to relax on some lovely sandy beaches and also we couldn't go to Tanzania without going on a safari, which I will not forget so easily. This trip was definately a trip of a life time.

This is a very small selection of photos that were taken!! So now it is back to the reality of housework, cooking and thinking about future quilt projects and classes. Which is going to take a while to get back into the swing of things, i.e a normal life, whatever that is!!!
