I'm just back from a week away on holiday (sun, sea and sand - yay!) and I'm glad to see that scheduled blogging worked a treat! I had a great time away, but it's fab to be back, with orders to work on and all your blogs to catch up with! I'm looking forward to getting down to some intensive crafting; it feels like forever since I brandished a pen and a pair of scissors!
The parrot's not my creation - he came with a sparkler in Himself's pudding at a restaurant - but it has put me in mind of some summery, holiday-themed designs so watch this space!
