Oh To Be in England Now That May is Here

Here's my newest stitch.  A little bee skep from Prairie Schooler's "June" pamphlet.  It's about bees, but I was attacked by a herd of bullfrogs while stitching.  I think I've practically stitched it twice thus far. 

Did you read my post title and wonder?  Have you thought that I've been somewhat distracted and scattered lately? 

All true!  My Mother & I flew into Heathrow airport this morning.

We are spending several weeks here.
  
This longer trip has been my Mom's Bucket List Wish for ages.  To be able to explore London and environs at leisure.

So yes, I've been distracted getting ready for this trip.
And now that I'm here, I expect my blog will be a bit different in focus.
I hope that you all will continue to Follow along as I write about Our Excellent Adventure!
