Cast and Crew
The Golfer:: My loving husband of some 20 years (yes, I was a child bride!), who likes nothing better than flogging a little white ball around the green fairways (and hopefully not getting into the rough) of his local golf course.
Ma & Pa Kettles:: My parents who live in the country, fondly known as The Kettles. Sadly my gorgeous Dad died in 2015, so it’s just Mum now.
MyDearFIL & MIL:: The Golfer’s Dad & Mum who have now both passed away.
LittleBigBrother:: My brother who is younger than me, but at 6 foot, definitely bigger than me!!
DocSisterInLaw:: LittleBigBrother’s wife (who has a Doctorate!)
Poppet:: My beautiful niece, and daughter of LittleBigBrother and DocSisterInLaw
(blis) n. 1. perfect happiness; serene joy
Obviously the collective noun for a group of stitchers!!

Watching: we’ve just got Netflix so I’m binging “Mad Men” as I missed it first time round
Going to: get out into the garden to weed…..aaaargh!
- Turned the tv on this afternoon and saw @maryberrybakeoff and @paul.hollywood on @greatbritishbaking Masterclass. Inspired me to make a carrot cake and focaccia (not their recipes!) and I finished another “Gateaux” block and started on another #mereditheclarktemplates #mereditheclarksignaturecollection #productivesundayafternoon #baking #carrotcake #focaccia #handstitching #gateauxblocks #dinnerismadeMy “Lottie” bag from @treehousetextiles is done for the first of my #monthlymakes2020 ✅ More details on today’s blog post. How did you do?? 😀And the next one - anyone would think I’ve been stitching all afternoon!! 😂 #gateauxblocks #mereditheclarktemplates #mereditheclarksignaturecollection #handpiecingSo glad I filled the bird bath this morning.
