It's been a long time since I have posted. Let me assure you, all is well, I have just been very busy with the B&B, ( had no help for 2 months), travelling to teach Mount Mellick Embroidery (making up kits as well), and, last, but not least, life just in general. I will be posting regularly again soon.
Here is a quick run through of the past few months:
My mom arrived, and we spent a fabulous 2 months together. Here she is, embroidering Mount Mellick at one of my classes.
On the last Thursday before Easter mom and I surprised the regular students attending my classes with a little present and more that just the ordinary coffee and tea.
Our Womens Agricultural Union held their annual Congress. Being linked to the Associated Country Women of the World Organisation, we joined a project called "Women walk the world". The purpose being to make the world aware of the plight of rural women around the world. There were about 160 attendies at our Congress, and 90% of them walked that day..... It was quite an experience....

The Congress is the highlight of the year for all the branches of the WAU. We had a super time....
