big birthday blog hop!
She gave each of the bloggers-followers a year to write about.
We had to do three things.
1. Write what Jo did that year, information she provided us with.
2. Write what we did that year.
and 3. Post a photo of something we have stitched.
I got 1968.
The funny thing is that Jo and I have the same age so I was 2 at that year as well, only a couple of months older.
This is what Jo wrote about that year.
1968 - Jo was 2. She was living in Catterick, Yorkshire with her Mum, Dad, a cat called Snowy and a new baby sister. Dad was in the Army so Jo was an Army Brat! The family moved to Catterick at the start of the winter and it snowed for the entire time they lived there before the family moved to warmer climes.
And here's what I can say about me in that year.
1968- I was 2. I was living in Istanbul, Turkey with my Mum, Dad, older brother Michael and grandma Ariadne. Dad was working at a wire factory. I don't remember much about that year. But I do remember living in a block of flats with a back yard and I played with a little Armenian girl called Alin. Our family had to move to Greece a couple of months later (in 1969) as the relationship between Greece and Turkey was getting worse.
As I haven't been stitching much lately I will add a photo of the last thing I stitched which is the month of May from the SAL- Joyful World by Snowflower Diaries.
I am really behind but hope to finish it by the end of the year! We will see.
Having read in Jo's blog about Justine's Solo September I thought of taking part in it too, but wasn't sure if I could commit.
So here's how I started
This one was a house warming gift for my best friend.
Dear Jo, I wish you to have a great birthday! Enjoy the day! And many happy returns!
Why don't you visit Jo's blog to wish her yourself?
