Here I met up with a very, very dear friend of mine and her family. The weather was mixed but we were still able to spend many precious moments at the beautiful, sandy beach. Sharing news, laughing, listening to the ocean, paddling toes and collecting shells or glistening pebbles from the water's edge. Memories that will be treasured!
The second week was spent in the hustling, bustling city of New York. Here we saw the bright lights of Times Square, visited art galleries and museums, walked to Central Park and took a boat ride to the Statue of Liberty.
It was fun but very tiring and, it is good now to be home and to catch up with all that has been happening here. I have enjoyed reading all the latest blog posts from my favourite blogs (see list on the left) and, I was especially pleased to find that block four of the 'Girls Own Stitching Club' project, 'Le Jardin Quilt' had been published by Bronwyn Hayes of Red Brolly. I have all the instructions printed out ready and I can't wait to get stitching!!
