It feels like I am writing a confession .... It has been 3 years since 🤔 I wrote on my blog, but suddenly we have a lot off time on our hands, the world has more time on their hands! 
Mine started 19th March when we started social distancing, I missed celebrating my Mothers 80th Birthday,

My Mothers birthday also fell on Mother's Day, she collects the Nutcracker Soldiers so I found a beaded Nutcracker Soldier so set about making him, people who bead will appreciate the work that went into him, took about 20hrs.

Wasn't quite the same, my Mum opened her present while I was on the phone with her.

Welcome back, and with a great post too. Sorry you missed your Mother's birthday, but wow, the nutcracker you made her is amazing! I'm sure she loved it.

I am searching for the Just Nan pattern of Owls of October and found a link to your blog. Do you by any chance still have this pattern and be willing to sell it? I know this is a long shot but thought I would try.

I am Susan Tipton from North Carolina and started back crosstitching again a few years ago. I love the pattern and am searching high and low.

Thank you for your time.
