Only 24 hours ago I was working through the instructions on how to set up my own 'Blog'.  Thanks to Ros for her great 'two pages worth of what to do' and Jan for her 'batty banter' on getting things going I believe that I am now a newly fledged 'Blogger'....wahoo ! ! !

Snow Covered Blencathra in the West

To start off with, I'd like to share a few personal things.  A couple of pictures that complete my every day here in Penrith. 

This photo shows a prime example of the north end of the Lake District....and I see this every morning from my bedroom window.  Blencathra, also known as Saddleback stands at a height of 2,847 feet and is about 10 miles west of Penrith. 

Although I will never climb it, the drive from Mungrisdale at the bottom of the mountain to Caldbeck where the wool shop is, needs to be done at least once a year. 

Abbigael is my sidekick, my best friend and the one friend with never ending unconditional love. 

She's now 9 1/2 years old and came over to England with me when she was only two. 

Her gentle dispostion makes her a joy to be around and so much fun to walk with. 

Well, enough of the chatter bug ....  time to get back to the sewing alterations.  Six pairs of trousers, two jackets and two skirts in 48 hours.  Not bad I'd say.

The Final Postcard

Well, it came today...the final postcard of the most recent PP swap co-ordinated by Katy.  Here is the postcard I received from Irene Baldock called 'Happiness'.  It's made from the leftover 'starpoints' from her grandaughters quilt.  It's lovely colours of black, white and lilacs are well suited to each other.  Thank you Irene. 

Oh My God....I've done it.....

I would never have believed that this would be my next step in the world of computer literacy, but hey it own blog titled 'Tessa's Treasures'.  Hopefully this will be the start of many postings, pictures and adventure.
