For all you wonderful crafters out there either on the verge of retirement or just waiting for the moment - stay at work!!!!!!!!!!
I have had the luxury of being retired for 5 and a half years now, but this week has seen me wanting to go back to work for a rest.................
Madness struck when my step-daughter and family finally 'came back home' at the beginning of September. The new house they moved to - courtesy of a housing association which gave priority to separated families through work and/or ex-forces, proved a no, no, due in part to it being a tiny box, so, another house move to a larger, privately rented home took place a week ago. Since then it's been 'Dadi, can you or, Anan can you'. Hey, we are absolutely loving it. The down side is, neither of us have time for hobbies. Perhaps when my special pal (that's my step-daughter) gets her business up and running, she will not need as much support as now - boo hoo!!!!!
Anyway, yesterday, she helped me cover a bedding box that her dadi (my DH) had made. What do you think???
Whilst Susi was here today she had a look through all my craft cupboards and found my bead stash and Heather's book. I now have another dragonfly to make for her friend!!
Julia started this little nosey around the craft desks of the world, allowing us a peek into the lives of like-minded folk who enjoy crafts of all kinds, not just paper. Thank you Julia for that 'cos it's such an enjoyable time each week despite the fact that not many of us actually get to visit all of them - so what?? If I get around to a handful, I'm happy.
I'll leave you with a photo of my ever increasing wall of art. This is a minuscule show of the amazing ATCs, cards, etc I have from numerous clever crafters - enjoy.
