Back from my holidays

We have been back a week but I have lost my mojo. Perhaps the loss of my mojo isn't surprising after suffering concussion on holiday. I was wearing sensible shoes on a wet granite pavement in Bergen - our first cruise stop and slipped and banged my head. I sat up and felt the blood on my head, and that's the last thing I remember until about 45 minutes later when I was stood outside the medical centre on the cruise ship. Scary. Nick says there was a lovely big puddle of blood on the pavement and that I kept asking where Matthew and Elizabeth were. Matthew was gliding in England and Lizzie is still on pilgrimage in a place whose name I can't spell.
The length of time that it is taking to do up my rental property and also finish the kitchen at our house is also sapping my energy. I appreciate the tradesmen who do what they promise to do on the date arranged and communicate problems as they arise and even let me know when they've finished. And the rest - the sooner this is finished the better and we can get back to something close to normal. Photos to follow next week.
Siblings Together 2 blocks for August

My bee commitments have started to pile up, but this one for August's Siblings Together Bee mama took about an hour and used scrap strips from a swap at FQR and some fabric scraps from Liz Dandelion for the FQ of  Sunkissed by Sweetwater that I sent Liz. I definitely got the better end of the deal. :)
Siblings Together 2 for August
I've also started a new cross stitch which I thought would be a quick make, but as I have no get up and go, progress is very slow. But hopefully by Monday the rental property will be in the hands of a letting agent and I can get back to some stitching.
