...I can almost hear the bugle playing at the end of a battle
the only sad and mournful sound....
But fear not though it is indeed the last post of Stitchery Pokery
I have a shiny new blog.
It may indeed be folly to jump this ship,
that I have tended to for the last five years
but I have wanted to have a change.
Changing the name of the blog wasn't as it turned
A fresh page was what I was yearning for more.
Please join me at my "new home" ThE HaNdMaDe PuNk so I don't feel quite so lonely.
My first post will explain a little more as why I felt a whole new blog
was more necessary to me.
See you at the other blog then. Bye...... for now I hope.

No pretty pictures today.
Just a very short note to let you all know
that taking your advice on my last post I have
decided to have a little name change and
spring clean on here.
Not being overly technically minded I
am seriously hoping that everthing is going
ok. And that you all can still find me!
Could you please let me know if this
is the case. Hopefully a new header will
be appearing soon too!
Its pretty scary to have such a big change.
Glad I listened to you all and didn't
go for the completely new blog option.
Thank you all for your help!

|Some cheery, springy flowers for you of time gone past.|
Well whoosh! and that was Christmas and New Year gone.
Apologies for not wishing you all a Happy festive time.
So before anything else is said.
Happy New Year folks!
Its not too late is it? seven days in??
The run up to Christmas was busy with all
sorts of things going on. School stuff,
housey stuff you know how it is.
And being honest I found blogland
a bit festive hostile this past yule tide.
Or at least some of the small corners that I visit.
Which actually started making me feel a bit
fed up. So I decided to skip blogs and blogging in
the main for over the festive period.
Christmas was great we spent the day itself
at my sisters.
She wanted a Christmas/Halloween mash up.
So that is what we did.
Its not often you have to add tinsel to a witches hat for
Or even share a car with a small vampire bride,
a pre-teen zombie goth, another witch,
a zombie Santa and two vampires.
The looks we got travelling over to my sister's was
priceless! It might not be everyone's cuppa char
but we all had a blast.
A bit like the weather - finding a wrecked fence was a
bit of a pants start on Christmas Eve. But we had a
cooked breakfast and that seemed to restore festive
spirit. New Years was spent in usual fashion at my parents
and we had a great time though I had come down with a
horrible chest infection thingy which left me a bit
wet blanket like for the rest of the holidays.
But here we are day two in "back to normal life".
Its so far gone OK.
I am not one for resolutions. Rules
are made to be broken I reckon.
I find the start of a New Year a bit scary to honest.
Last year was filled with a lot of family loss and sadness for
those closest to them left behind.
So I know just how much life can change for
a person in one short year.
I had to close my blog for only a day I was having
real technical doolalies.
The other half has helped me
out so here I am back again.
The same as ever I have been.
I have been thinking about maybe closing this
blog down permanently.
But maybe starting a new one with
a new name as well. And
who knows maybe some
new stories too.
I feel a change coming on,
its been coming for a while
five years on here and
I guess it seems a new year to start
new things seems rather apt.
We will see. In the meantime
take care and I will in one guise
or another be back real soon.
