Good afternoon, no I didn't get lost or left behind at the NEC. I just don't know where time has gone. Got in through the door on Saturday after returning from our trip to Birmingham, for Charlie to tell me that I had just missed seeing our son and my two grand daughters and that it was ok as they were coming for lunch tomorrow (Sunday) and that Rebecca would like it if I would show her how to make an Oragami box. Ok didn't mind that but oh I was so looking forward to an easy day. Next Charlie then also adds and I have invited Gillian ( oldest daughter) for tea, as you can imagine I just saw my easy day disappear. I love having them but oh boy I love having a day off also I remembered I had said to Gillian I would make boxes for her necklaces that she has been making for a charity craft night. I knew she was hoping I would do some of them.
Any way Chris, Rebecca and little Lauren came had lunch then we made boxes - Lauren is just 31/2 years but she wanted to make a box ( I DO ONE TOO!! ) was her. Have got to say Rebecca made her with no trouble and daddy and Lauren made a lovely one to. Chris had his camera with him and was taking photos and I didn't.
My buys =
As you can see my buys are more for making gifts and decorations, plus to bags. The little silk evening one is a Christmas gift. The other one is for myself. All in all I had a fantastic couple of days the high light being the meeting of Ang. (Mrs Duck) and Christine ( Christine's cards and craft)
I haven't had a night like that in a long time.
A couple of Gillian's necklaces and some of the boxes I have been making. Some of the card for the boxes is from Lidl and the others are from Trimcraft Nordic Christmas and Silent Night Collection. All lovely to work with.
Oh bad me I meant to welcome my new follower Chris. Welcome to my little craft/ gift making blog, I hope I can give you some ideas .
Well I suppose I'd better make a move and go to work. Note that I really can't wait to get going - not I could just sit here and do some crafting bits, but hey ho that is just not on the cards for today, it's cello and piano to night so will be lucky to be home before 6.45pm.
Thank you for calling by and leaving lovely comments, I love getting them and reading them all.
