I consider myself a crafter of long standing having worked at many types of craft. I am a member of The Craft Forum www.craftsforum.co.uk You will notice that I write the odd ditty, if you are not into these I apologise in advance but I can't help myself. The rest you will learn as you read through the blog.
Once again I have to apologise for not leaving a comment. Most of your blogs I cannot access, my prob. not yours. Those I can I do but I do religously read all of your blogs regularly as soon as they show up on my Dashboard. I am still trying to sort it without success.
This is my handmade Monday offering.
An elderly neighbour gave me some full length curtains with the wish that I would find a new home for them. Well, I did. I cut the curtains down to make bedroom curtains for No.2 son who was moving home and what was left I put into a quilt and cushion covers for the same bedroom.
A friends other half has told her he is leaving at Christmas.I asked why not till Christmas.She didn’t know but agreed that he could stay till then.
Now is it me?Am I so very intolerant?I not only would have wanted to know why but he would have been packed and gone that same day but my friend is a kind soul and has spoiled her other half rotten which begs another question – what is he looking for and is the grass greener on the other side of the street?
I share my hearth
I share my home
I’m always nice, I never moan.
I defer to you
Refer to you
With lots of love and caring too.
A lot of years
Under the belt
A lot of tears and laughter felt.
The good things
And the bad ones
The promises, the marriage bonds
And yet you’ve gone
To some other
This obviously was not for ever.
You should worry.
I might find
I’ll do better without your kind.
whose blogs cannot access. I cannot access any blogs at all now and the message that I keep getting is
Your current account (CarolC1@hotmail.co.uk) does not have access to view this page. I don't have a clue why so - my comments are as follows: Rosemademme - Those sausage rolls look good enough to eat. Actually I am salivating just thinking about them. lol. Picto - Lovely Cafe plaque. I sympathise with you over preparation it is the same with quilting, it takes hours just to get ready.
and Marias bowls. Aren't they beautiful. Made a papiermache hot air baloon with G/kids once and do wonder how you get such a wonderful finish. Redneedle - Great tea cosy, you don't see many about these days do you. That would be lovely and cheerful in any kitchen. Ooak Fairies Good time girl. I know you have called her a show girl but she also looks the epitomy of the good time girl doesn't she and well up to your usual standard. Raindrops and Roses. That is a lovely gift for your child minder. Such a lot of thought gone into it. She should be very impressed. A nice keepsake for her retirement too. Magnifique Designs. Enjoyed my read re your visit to Thwaite Watermill in Leeds. Some lovely pics too.. I love looking around old places, all the corners and bits and pieces. Flutterby Creates. Nice to hear you have been productive and managed to catch up a bit. Very unusual Thankyou card. Stunning as is the necklace.
So sorry to have to do it like this. I do so enjoy reading all your blogs and looking at the lovely things everyone makes. OH says I spend far too much time on here. umph - expect he is right.
I wonder if I sign in to Gmail what difference it will make to my set up on the computer. Will it mess my blog access up again like Chrome did. I am sure that is the reason I got locked out of my other blog. It would not allow my password etc., and when I tried to change it I was told to go through Administrator (Whatever that is) so tried to do so and it just went round in circles. I tried the help system but got no response from that either.
Now I am scared to do anything that might upset the apple cart again. I have had a computer techie bod in and he cannot ascertain why I can't leave comments so it remains a mystery.
Someone else has volunteered to have a looksee in a day or two so if I suddenly disappear you know why.
Instead I will leave them here in the hope that you all see them. We all seem to be into simple but nice this week.
Kates beautiful peacock, yes you are right, so simple yet effective. I love it.
Those tissue holders from Rosmademe, they are so nice they will make the novice sewer feel they have really achieved something and Redneedle and her sewing machines. Takes me back a bit, I learnt on an old singer, bit older that that old lady too. Have fun with her.
Martha's lovely little cross stitch too.
Thankyou Wendy for your Handmade Monday too and your lovely comments on here.
I also want to thank everyone else for their comments, much appreciated, which is why I am fed up because I can't reciprocate. Bah.
I think I have remembered everyone.
When I was a child we had either metal curlers or rags in the hair to provide one with a coiffeur for the following day.We did have curling tongues but these were inserted in a fire until red hot prior to curling hair around it.Risky?Yes, definitely.If one wasn’t careful one could end up with very short hair indeed.
The reason I mention these tortures is that I recall one of my Mothers favourite sayings as she dragged a comb through my long and often knotted hair.“Vanity hurts my girl, vanity hurts”.
When I think of what some people do today all in the name of beauty.
