Some new stuff and an apology


Hi friends
Sorry I have been away from my blog for so long, I've been finding it hard to craft and blog since my mother in law came to stay last September, I look after here every 2 weeks, she is 94 and can't do anything for herself and for awhile I didn't know what had hit me and felt I didn't have a life of my own. But, things have improved and I have a lovely lady come each morning to get her up, washed and dressed and I am more relaxed and enjoying my craft once more and I'd like to say thank you to my wonderful forum friends ( you know who you are ) who have been a great support. I have managed to do a little bit of crafting, forgive me for not going into the details but you wouldn't believe how long it has taken me to upload these pictures and get them the right way up. The tag I made at a friends last week and finished it today, I like the way it turned out, also a couple of birthday cards and some Xmas cards I remembered to photograph. I tried to upload them all in one post, but couldn't figure it out so did it in two! Please feel free to comment and I will come visit you xx
