I will try not to make this too long ( sorry Julia if it does run over a bit)
I did intend to post last week but I ran out of time. I could not believe it when I realised I'd missed learning that I had won the gorgeous
'Tootie Fruiti Bag' from LLJ - Jan that she kindly gave away to celebrate the third birthday of her blog!!! Guess what it arrived today - oh yes it did and it's fabulous. It is going to travel with me - I usually take knitting /crochet with me and in future it will travel in my tootie fruitie bag. Many thanks Jan.
Since my last post I've been up to Yorkshire again visiting my eldest son and family. I helped my D.I.L. make two cakes based on the Disney film Frozen and also a football shirt for Sam who was having his birthday party that weekend. His party was at a climbing centre in Brighouse and unfortunately we got a parking ticket. We had paid but it fell off the windscreen. DH appealed and it was rescinded - this time!! Cheek it was the fact that the adhesive was affected by the heat and would not stick.
My photo of one of the 'Frozen' cake has not turned out well. It looks lop sided etc but in reality was fine!!
On our return from Yorkshire I had to gear up to preparations for my Card Making Workshop. I had 9 lovely ladies attending and had not done any preparation. Knew what I wanted to do! It was a difficult week as there were family issues, I didn't feel well and I had a lot of other things that needed to be done. I was very stressed last week. Glad to say I was ready for class, some issues with family resolved and although I still have a cough I feel better than I did.
They made a bag ( thanks to Elaine at Paper craft button for instructions) - with some pretty coloured tea lights inside , a screen card 9 thanks to Linda Parker for the idea and the final card is not the one they made but is similar- thanks to Pootles for the inspiration.
I told them to do as I said not as I did - I didn't punch the clasp bit centrally :-(
I have also made
I bought this gorgeous fabric and ribbon - don't know what I'm going to do with it yet - sure I'll think of something :-)
Oh yes I'd best show you my 'desk' have been making a card for my grandson today - can't show you yet though.
And finally as well as getting my lovely bag today I also received some gorgeous flowers by post - a thank you from my D.I.L.'s friend thanking me for helping with the cake and also heard that my nephew got engaged yesterday - on the beach at Lyme Regis. So pleased for him.
The gorgeous flowers.
I am sorry for a long post - sorry Julia will try and do better next week.
Why am I showing you my desk? Pop over to Julia's Blog and join in!!! As always will visit those I follow , anyone who visits me and those ending with same number. Have a great week. Back soon - I hope. x
