…. reached. OH celebrated his birthday a few days ago and it was lovely that he did. We had some bad news before and after this milestone so it was a little two-edged. Two of our good friends were made widows within 8 days – one after a long illness and one very suddenly but as you can imagine a little distressing for us both.
Now on a more positive note I have started another jumper with some wool my Mum and Dad sent me for Christmas and I have all but finished sewing up the pink v-neck jumper I had hoped to finish for Christmas. I hope I will have photos of both to show next time. (Sorry there are a lot of I’s and hopes in that paragraph. Miss Killip would not have been impressed!! LOL). Crafting time is still at a premium and there is not much papercrafting going on at the moment but that is not to say that new stuff hasn’t been popping through the door. CraftWork cards and the Craft Barn had sales on and I bought a goody bag from both places, naughty I know but full of nice goodness. I haven’t taken any photos as yet as my crafting area is in a real higgly piggley state.
Later on I am hoping to get started on my take on the Journal Your Christmas project inspired by Shimelle here. The idea is that you try to fit in a little crafting everyday and journal your Christmas as it bowls along. Never got that far but have a wealth of ideas, photos and memorabilia to scrap / journal as soon as I feel able.
Bit short of photos so here is a shot of my Christmas Cactus which has now shed its lovely flowers.
Happy Crafting and hope to have more crafty photos next time I post.
