Good morning


I hope everyone is okay and not affected by flooding.


On the craft front I worked out how I will knit 2 garments. One is now packed ready to take on holiday next month the other I going to work on at home.


Keep crafting

Morning :)


Major storms here too but I've not heard of any flooding.  Hopefully because they put up flood defenses many years ago as the Severn kept bursting it's banks all over the place!


On a crafting front I think I've finished the wedding flowers.  A few days ago I was using garden wire wrapped in rubbery stuff for stalks for some of the flowers and as I tried to pull off some of the rubbery tube I managed to shoot the wire right through the base of my little finger on my left hand :( It went all the way through and out the other side at a kind of diagonal angle.  Needless to say the sofa looked like a crime scene but DF came to the rescue with tissue to mop up my hand and wipes to clean off the sofa from the aftermath of me pulling the wire back out.  Amazingly the bleeding stopped after 10 minutes, its fully healed and the bruising and swelling is almost gone...  I'm just glad it wasn't my ring finger!!!


Eliza sounds like a good plan getting your holiday crafting ready now.  Have fun knitting :D


Right best be off as I've got to finish getting the girls ready for school then its a bit of pampering for me before work as I'm having my nails done :P


Bye for now x

Good morning all. Cloudy and rain but no floods and now the sun looks to be coming out as I type. Watching C&C sewing Christmas crafts. At the same time I have finished the blanket part of the monkey huggy.


Yesterday we took the bull by the horns and bought a Ford Fiesta Ztec 2013 car.


Our old Mazda is going to the car heaven in the sky she was 18 years old. We pick the new car up this evening.


Ouch Su2ie, I hope your finger. Is ok I did just the same thing with the sewing machine needle and pulled it out of my finger, surprisingly it healed very quickly.

Talking about DF , the snooker player Ali Carter has IBS and he has after 10 years now a diet that agrees with him and he looks a new man , I hope DF finds what is right for him are the doctors helping him with that?


Any way have a crafty day all BBL
