Weekend Visitor



I've just said cheerio to Viv, she has been with us since yesterday lunch time as she had a Bowls Presentation dinner and a meeting here in Leicester last night and this morning, she spent as little time as was necessary at these functions, prefering to craft, so we've done some metal work, made grunge paper flowers and fixed napkins onto canvas with gel medium. We also found time to shop for crafty bits and have our photo's taken with a bronze statue of our local Bowls hero. While Viv was out last night I made a note book for her OH as a thank you for his suffering in having to drink all that beer so we can have the cans to work with, the back and front is silver card embossed and distressed and a letter covered with metal is on the front. It has been a lovely weekend, I think I can safely say a good time was had by all!!

I'm green with envy and would love a 'crafty' friend to play with! The metal initial on that notebook is very smart and makes a lovely gift Maureen. Your weekend sounded great and a good antidote to this awful weather.

You ARE a tell tale Maureen... fancy saying I preferred to be crafting rather than doing my duty!!!! LOL
