It's NEVER too late for a picnic!!

I know I've been pretty lax recently with my blog posts...just blame the pressure of old age & commission work! There just aren't enough hours in each day..PLEASE somebody give me more!! Between running the house & the garden (although there are only the two of us at the moment, my dear old Hubby counts for at least 3 people on his own!! LOL)& trying my very best to keep up with orders, I just run out of time every day!
I'm heading out to the UAE again at the weekend to spend some time in the sun...oh &, of course, with my youngest & her "partner"....so I've been desperately trying to finish all the UFO's (for the uninitiated..."unfinished objects"!)that are littering my workbench...here is one that has been "work in progress" for at least 2 months!! :_))


But...at last, I've finished it! As summer (did we actually have one here in the UK?!) has now gone I decided to give it the title of "It's never too late for a picnic"! Believe me...it is too late here in the North East of England, unless, of course, you were to put on thermal underwear & ski-ing gear...then perhaps.....!! LOL




By the way, to all those who read my blog (& I thank you!!)remember my last visit to UAE when on my return the escalator "ate" me.....please pray that this time it decides to eat somebody else & leaves me in peace!! LOL

So wonderful Linda. Really I love everything you make. I know we all could use more hours. But you can only do what you can do. Your things are worth the wait.
Have a wonderful visit and no more escalator attacks!
No worries I think all the blogs are a little slow right now.
Hugs,
Kim

Roll up a newspaper when you go on the escalator and swat it hard and say "Bad Escalator!" if it tries to eat you again!

Linda as always your work is amazing!! I think I waste a few hours in my day, so when I work out how to send it to you, it is yours....use it wisely!!
You may not blog on a 'regular' basis, but we know when you do it will have been worth waiting for!!
Enjoy your time away and safe travels....
Linda.

What a beautiful picnic lunch! Makes me hungry looking at it and longing for the lazy summer days already--we're still in the 70's here during the day and peaks to 80's in the southern US but nights are getting cooler!
