Thank you for all the lovely comments left last week. Oh and someone asked how I'd made the chicken/bunny boxes. It was a die called Curvy Keepsakes from Stampin' Up! I love it.
So what have I been up to this week? Last Wednesday DH and I went to the Jewellry Quarter in B.ham. I wanted to see if I could find out how much my lost necklace cost /how much to replace. We should have checked opening times as that particular jewellers were closed :-( However I also took my grandmother's ring to find out if I can have it resized. I can and it's going to cost a fair few pounds but the jeweller said it was a lovely ring, has 3 diamonds and the gold around the diamonds has been beautifully crafted so it is worth doing. It has to have a 'half shank' put in. I also took two watches ( one that my parents bought me for my 21st birthday ) for repair. I think I need to start saving :-)
On Thursday evening we went to visit a friend and had cheese and wine - very yummy.
Saturday evening we were invited to our youngest son's for dinner. delicious lasagne and salad and they made a delicious chocolate mousse.
On Sunday two of my fellow sugar crafters and I got together. One of them has to make 100 cupcakes each decorated with a daffodil for a charity event in Wales on Saturday. I cut and embossed the toppings and the other two made the daffodils. She will put the toppings onto the cakes on Friday - the cakes are made but frozen for now. We had a delicious lunch. Then chatted away for rest of afternoon. I left DH grouting between tiles in the bathroom :-) it was best to keep out of the way!!! The rest of the time I have spent preparing for next Saturday's class - I have ten ladies coming eek. I am almost ready .
So to my desk
You can see some sneaky peeks of what's on offer - if you look carefully. By the roll that is kitchen towel in the orange bin- someone asked if it was TP ( toilet paper ?)
I have started to clear away the rest of the stuff that was there ready to get the table set up for my class.
That's it for now - will visit all who visit me and those ending with same number as me. x
