The Show Must Go On!

SDC11383Hello lovely readers.. Hasn’t the weather been delightful. Let me just say I am beginning to shake off those winter blues and let the sun shine on through. Mind you I have been so busy the last few weeks, my sleeping pattern has gone right out the window.  Hopefully that will calm down as I start to settle into spring.

So what has this girl been doing…  I dunno if you noticed but I have had an ‘emo’ hair cut lol, not that I am an emo, I just love the style.  But the only problem is when the weather is damp or raining and I have to go curly I kinda look like the female version of Brian May….  So anyhooo lets get cracking, I have so much to tell you.

A friend of mine passed, yes the dreaded Cancer struck again.  It reminded me how short our lives are and we should grab opportunities and be brave enough to try new things or say things that we should say, like I love you, or you are special or do you know that you make me so very happy.  Letting a loved one or a friend know what they mean to you is worth more than all the gold in the world. 

I made another nappy cake this time it was for a colleague who works with my mum.  I also made the cards..  I think this one was much better neater that the last one.  Apparently she really loved it. I hope she did.


The same week I finally finished the crocheted baby blanket, I so enjoyed doing this..  I may do another just for the sake of it.  I wasn’t there because I do get embarrassed when people praise me.  I am like take it, I don’t want thanks.  So I tend not to go to these things.  I guess that's the joys of being shy..


Though looking at the blanket now I think I could have done it a lot better neater.

Mum had her 65th Birthday, unfortunately I was nursing her for a rotten bout of the cold.  She did say she liked her card, which I did totally different from other cards I made.  For one I used all colours I hated, and it did surprisingly turn out really nice.

The rubber stamp I searched for ever, mum has cross stitched a set of these and I thought that it would be nice for her card.


I made a thank you card for my tutor at college, we are nearing the end of the course, and all I can say is a big yippee! I want my Saturdays back lol..


I also had made a ruby wedding card for someone at mum’s work and a birthday card for mum’s best friend from childhood, and her friend at work. I never had a chance to photograph them because as soon as they were dry a certain person stole them and sent them off. *sigh*

So my masterpiece.  I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo proud of me. Hmmm does that sound a bit too much.  Well anyway who cares this is my bestest piece I have ever done..  You might not like it, but I love her… Obviously she looks much better, I just cant take photo’s all that well, not that you would have noticed.. Bwahahahahahahahahaha…..


I think I could have done her hair better, white hair was really difficult for me, now its kinda grey but, I think it works well… 

Anyhooo that’s me out for now, be well and thank you for coming xx


  1. Wow, you certainly have been busy. Everything you have made looks great. I think that we are our own worst critics at times. The recipients certainly won't be looking for faults.
