Bye Bye Christmas

The last of the mince pies, with my home made brandy butter. Saved for my lovely husband who had to work today even though he has raging toothache (probably abscess)
Our tree is coming down tomorrow, won't take long!

My newest venture

For a while now I have not been making jewellery. A few people have asked about my Christmas Tree Decorations, but not enough to make me wish I was still making them!
I am now into simple patchwork. Not the English kind, but the the American machine made. I am thoroughly enjoying it and this is the result of some of my leftovers. They come from a single size bed quilt made for Lucy, my middle grandchild. She loved the quilt and the dolly and sleeping bag. (I did not make Dolly)
My next project is to start English hexagon patchwork.
I will show you soon!

Verification thingie!

Hi! Joy asked me about. verification thingie, I did not know I had one. Sorry. So, do not know how to get rid of it. . . .
Anyway, here is something we found when having a clear out. I only just rescued it from the bin in time. My husband is not sentimental. He was going to throw out this hand painted gift which celebrates his Christening, but seems to be attached in a very odd way to a complete garage full of tatt!
That's all for today folks. If you know how to remedy the above can you let me know!

Merry Christmas

Hello one and all, if you are reading this, THANKYOU for keeping me on your list of blogs. Since I had my iPad for Christmas 2011 I have not been able to work out how to blog with a photo. (Some people should not be allowed to have new techi stuff!!)
I really love it.
Lots of things have happened this year. The biggest event, my new grandson, Samuel, arrived on 3 August. Of course I think he is gorgeous, I met him in November and had a fab time with him and his two beautiful sisters
Enough for now, if this works I will be back soon!

When I receive a package from a fellow crafter I know I will always be happy with the presentation. As Crafters we know that the 1st impression counts almost as much as the quality of our work.
Just look at the packaging from Linentree. Especially the tag. Amazing. The little purse inside, which you can see if you click on the link, is going to be fabulous too.
I first found her whilst browsing the site that banned one of my items and led to me throwing my toys out of the pram and leaving the site completely!!!I bought some Christmas Gifts tags and was so delighted. Have a look and you will share my admiration.
I will get back to crafting again soon, but until then I am enjoying supporting others.

I have an iPad2

No, I am not boasting. Just saying, my lovely husband bought me one for Christmas. Fantastic. More than I could have ever dreamt of. To explain:

My lovely husband is quite unpredictable when it comes to gifts. One year I had a feather duster. Another year a stainless steel pedal bin. Useful, but not romantic. On the other hand, I admire a bracelet in a shop window in June one year, he offered to buy it for me, but I said it was too expensive. That Christmas he quietly presented it to me after all of our guests had gone home.

That is why we are still together after almost 43 years of marriage.

Anyway, I digress into soppyness:))

Just to say, I have not worked out yet how to place pictures usingmy iPad. I will be working hard to learn!!!!

Happy New Year.
