Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

Probably my favourite craft right now is with parchment, both traditional skills and Groovi, very relaxing and calming to do.

Friday Smile - a day late

Christmas finally arrived today for the other half of our family  It was delayed initially due to illness, then snow intervened after that, but we managed it today.  This tractor and trailer has been occupying most of our conservatory since just before Christmas.  It was a great hit, and the true owner, little Rosie ended up in the trailer with her big sister, Charlotte doing the hard work (with a little help from Dad). 

Among the presents we delivered today were a set of gloves and a warm hat for each.  As you can see, Charlotte loves hers (Rosie had gone to bed by this time).

One of the presents they both had was a little Christmas doll made by Jo Betts (Twiglet).  Although it is too late to hang them on the tree until December (isn't that coming fast?) they still loved them and I suspect they will get hung somewhere in their rooms in the meantime.  I will post a picture of those when I have time to extract stills from the video.  For now, thank you Jo.

I know I am late posting this week, but we did have a lot of smiles today.  To see more lovely smiles, just slip over to Annie's Smiles.

How lovey. They probably appreciated their presents more than if they'd opened them on Xmas day! Lovely to see the joy on their faces. I bet there was a lot of joy on yours too!? Joan
