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.

Friday Smiles

Not sure if this is a smile or a cry from our point of view.  We had a message from our son yesterday arranging to bring the two girls down to see us on Saturday.   Within half an hour of that, we looked out to see that nasty white stuff coming down heavily again.  You may remember that Christmas was delayed this year, partly due to illness and partly to snow.  It seems as though every time we try to arrange a get together, something interferes to stop us.  We have not got as much snow as they have, but there is more heavy snow forecast so we shall just wait and see.

In the meantime, the two girls are having a whale of a time with Daddy with their huge snowman.  Mummy is asleep, being on nights this week. 

If you want to see lots more lovely smile making pictures, then you need to go over to Annie at A Stitch in Time.  Even better, why don't you show us something that makes you smile.

Brrrrrr I've had just about enough of this cold stuff for this year. We woke up to a good covering too this morning but I've not ventured out to make anything as lovely as their snowman. Fab pic. Thanks for sharing it.

Aaah! what a shame, it has happened to us and it's so hard. They are having fun and what a fantastic snowman. Hope you all get your precious time together soon once this Winter finally takes the hint!

Lovely photo of your granddaughters and their huge snowman. We've had snow today so, to paraphrase what the late Queen Mother said after the Palace was bombed in WWII, I can now look the rest of the country in the face. Elizabeth xx

Hi Maggie, just laughing at your comment about bringing a canoe to the Playground - a snow shovel more like! We have more white stuff even down here now. Such a shame about your family - hope you did manage the get together in the end.

Still watching Barbara Grey DVD here - she cracks me up, very dry sense of humour and makes it such fun.

Have a warm and safe weekend!

Hugs, Di xx
