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.

Warning - Scary Monster Alert!

Scary or what?  Why am I being plagued by these great monsters?  This one was too big even for the dogs to take on.  Gemma tried and then backed right off and would not go near it again.  I finally managed to corner it with my turbo powered spider catcher (from Amazon).  Even that was not easy, trying to gather up all the legs so I could put the bung in the tube. 
I just hope it does not walk back from where I let it go.  If it does, you will hear the scream throughout the land.

Aaaargh! Scary stuff. I opened an empty storage bag in the garage yesterday and there was summick akin to a tarantula staring back at me Maggie :( I took the bag outside and tipped said beastie on the ground, whereupon it made a dash for me tootsies - talk about doing the Highland Fling around the a patio!

Will reply to your lovely newsy email ASAP. So pleased the trip went well.

Hugs, Di xx

I wondered what all the screaming was about in the playground!!! Not something you'd want crawling around the floor at night time that's for sure. Hugs Mrs a.
