12 Klosjes

Diamonds well just one. I am such a very happy bunny today. My son and girlfriend of 6 1/2 years got engaged last night.
They went to Padstow to Rick Steins seafood restaurant and hotel yesterday and son and heir rang last night with an ecstatic Em in the background to say he had popped the question and put a diamond ring on Em's finger. I am sure I could here her whopping for joy from Padstow which is 200 miles away from here. I love her as if she were my own daughter I never had so am thrilled for them both.
One thing that is weird is that it was 47 years to the day that DH and I started dating- That has got to be a good omen.

So now back to the Klosjes, I haven't posted on how many for a couple of weeks now as I have been away, However I wasn't resting on my laurels and managed to sew 12 whilst I was away, bring my total to 112.
You might remember I was looking for something to pull them together , well I found this old tea dyed looking soft floral. I tried lots of different combinations when I was at Cowslip but this one gave it an old dutch feel I thought.
Till next time
