I've not been on WOYWW for a while as my PC died on me bigtime....however it's now back from the PC hospital and working again.  Boy do we miss them when they're not there!! Go and check out the link above to see what it's all about.
I was asked to make a 'not fussy' wedding card - and to use anything I wanted - with pink to be on the card somewhere - so off I went..... I'll show you the results when it's done - I've got a couple more bits to do and it'll all be finished.  Just as well as the wedding is in a few days!

I've got a few different things on the go at the moment, the wedding card, several "New Baby" cards and not forgetting Christmas cards and Gift Wallets (some made in the previous post already) and some birthday cards and thank you cards too.

Yesterday on the way back from the Dentist I dropped in another huge bag of cards (thanks Gill and Julia for the gorgeous cards you kindly donated too!).  All I heard as I left was "Oh look at that wonderful card" "Here's another fabulous one" "Oh I must have some of these" it is so lovely when people appreciate all your hard work.

Also I've been making more crocheted blankets for the kitties for Christmas, as well as some little toys and food for them.  The shelter relies on donations and I like to help by doing what I can for them.  They are not holding their Christmas Fair this year sadly, but they hope to have one early next year instead. 

Talking of kitties, our Domi hasn't been well and we nearly lost her - the vets only told us that after she perked up and her Blood Tests have come back better.  She's had tablets which completely knocked out her White Blood Count and left her to infections which could kill.  After three lots of antibiotics it's improved at last. She's 20 years old now and she's such a sweetie. After spending many hundreds of pounds, she's worth every penny.  Now who is having beans on toast for tea again?!?!!?

I took a huge box of cards to my Auntie as she wanted some special cards for special people made by moi.  I admit to loving it when someone is so proud of your creative talents.  She only wanted ones made by me which was lovely to be appreciated so much. 

I'll be showing the results of the 'cards in progress' soon so you can all see them.

Happy WOYWW!

Very glamorous looking makings on your wedding card... so glad you're back online with your PC - so scary how dependent we've become, don't know what I'd do without mine!! Happy WOYWW!

Good for you for helping out the cat shelters - are you making the blankets for the cats to lie on or to sell?
