Thank you for coming to see what I have been up to, and for your comments on my last card.

Well it's been a very wild day here in the east of Fife.   Rain has stopped but for how long that's the question?    So it's been an ideal day for staying in, not one for getting washing dry.   Tammy handed me three different coloured washes all in bags just ready for me to put each bag full into the machine, she is well trained as I would say, no mixing of loads.  I have done 2 of them they are on the dryers, thankfully a lot are thin t-shirts so won't take long to dry.  So not that exciting a day for me.

Over the week I have been using up bits from my bit box as I have said.  These are just a few more, nothing fancy,  it's just nice to use up bits.  It's kept me busy, well not that busy!!!

As I said " nothing fancy"    Waste from die cuts, die cuts that I wasn't happy with as I had used not strong enough card for what I wanted, but ok, cut offs of card,  pearls and ribbon etc.  from stash.  The school can have these to sell, as they say " it all helps the school funds". I have made a few more but I have still to put inserts into these.  Bit box is still full, but hopefully I will get more made. 

I am off up to Inverness tomorrow to have lunch and a chat with Kate ( Culliesocks ). We are off to the N.E.C.  At the beginning of November, so we will go over arrangements for that too.   Really looking forward to those days away and meeting up with (Ang. Mrs Duck) and Christine, and their is word that John Next Door could be there as well, plus anyone else that cares to join our merry little band.  

I will go now and clean up all the bits I have had out looking for bits, then I'd better get the Hoover out and get this place looking more respectful.

  7. Well, they look pretty fancy to me, Hazel! And you've done an admirable job at using up snippets & pieces to make some really lovely cards. Liked each one of them, and each was different. Have fun with Kate. How lucky you all are to be able to enjoy a wonderful craft show. Hope the weather will be cooperative so you don't get soaked. Don't buy anything I wouldn't like! (leaves lots of opportunities!). Off to enjoy some posts I've missed this past week. TFS & Big Hugs
