Hi everyone. I made it again. Wondered if I would as we were very late eating tonight, after spending a lot of time today on the telephone with my sister and brother re mum. Things still the same really. Thanks for all the kind thoughts and wishes last week, I do appreciate them.

I have managed a little crafting today as I needed to make a birthday card for DH for Sunday and finish one for DS for Friday. I nearly gave in and bought them but have more or less got them sorted. I will share soon.

So my space as of tonight

I really must sort myself out and use my camera these photos don't seem to be so good.

So above you can see DH's card - a double z fold I believe they are called - thanks to Amanda Bates.  I was almost finished - had been checking out some embellishments when the phone rang - again - it was about two hours later when I came off. So still need to add the finishing touches. The box at the back has some of the items needed for my craft event.

Took another shot of along the table. It all looks a bit of a mess but it is mainly ordered :-) - a lot of the various parts for cards etc are at far end in boxes. I am panicking slightly at though of what I've got left to do. 

Hopefully share more next week. if you would like to know more about WOYWW  and join us all then visit The Stamping Ground you can be sure of a very warm welcome. I will come and visit as many as I am able and everyone who visits me, and who ends in the same number as me. 

We had a lovely time on Sunday. Our son and family had arrived home from a holiday in Portugal. They invited us round to catch up with them for brunch. Afterwards we went a walk and then back to view the holiday photos. I am really happy they had a wonderful time but am glad that they are back safe and sound. Have a great week , hopefully back soon.

  4. I'm glad that everyone is getting together to talk about your mum, it's a horrid time but so much better if you're not on your own. The crafting is looking good, I'm sure you'll get everything done in the end :-D

    1. Hello Elizabeth, I am so sorry I couldn't see where to comment on your post but thank you for visiting. x

  7. Sounds like you've been having a tough time lately, hopefully crafting takes your mind away for a few moments. I always feel guilty buying cards now instead of making them lol, must be a cardmaker thing. It gets me in the craft room sometimes when I wouldn't be there.

    Happy WOYWW
