  1. Morning Sandra and all lovely friends, It's saying no comments but that can't be right, Sure you are there..... I help setting up for today and give it a good sweep, still getting muddy footprints in after alll the rain we had.
    Saturday's craft is Beautiful ! I love the pottery Brenda and the butterfly, Lynda will like it , I hope your throat feels a bit better so you will enjoy the party later. Karen- the little jumper is so sweet, lovely pattern and colour.
    Patricia- our box queen, these gift bags are fantastic and the flowers are gorgeous!
    Woke up ,looked above my head in the ceiling and saw a massive spider ! Jumped out of bed and shouted to OH to look up. He didn't understand of course and when I looked back it was nothing there ! We can't find anything in the bed encase it dropped and we don't think it had time to walk off so my conclusion this morning is it must have been a dream ! Thanks Saba for brining up the spiders again hi, Anyhow couldn't go back to sleep so OH reading his book and I'm hear since 5am. Its going to be a good day crafting hopefully.
    Son getting ready for 12 hours work today and hubby to football in London later so ,peace ! Going to get myself a mug of tea and see who else,sister, are coming in next. Back in a mo. xxx

    1. MARIA:- that spider fairly make you move out of bed quick this morning!!! Hope you manage to last the lace during the day.
      We get lots of huge spiders all the time. Living in the country surrounded by fields if potatoes brings BIG spiders. I throw them out, John is cruel and kills them. He says if you throw them they just walk straight back in again.
      Have a good day to yourself maybe some crating I think!! xxx

    2. Maria! Maria ! What are we going to do with you? Now you are seeing things ------ things that aren't there! Was it not dark at 5am? If it was how could you see a spider? We live in interesting times. Xxx

    3. There's nothing worse than seeing a huge spider Maria and then not being able to find it again! If I stay up late in the lounge and a big spider runs out from the sofa, Julian just looks at me squeezing away and says 'oh that's Simon, he comes out every night to say hello!" Honestly what can you do with them! Xxx

  2. Good morning all.
    SANDRA, PAUL & GIRLS hope you are having a great holiday and enjoying nicer weather than we have today.
    BRENDA:- I just LOVE today's makes. The butterfly dish would be my purchase. Love the hearts as well though.
    KAREN:- brilliant sweater, I love the pattern. Would make a fantastic "man" sweater.
    MINE:- bags made using an XCut Bag Die. The bag is 2 sheets of "strong" A4 card joined together. Once made up they hold a fair bit, a brilliant gift bag. Flowers made with a very old Woodware Pansy Punch. Punch out 3 pieces, mould them on a mat and join them together to form the flower. Made from Velum, coloured with ProMarkers. Leaves cut from a mixture of Dies.
    Well folks it's dark, bucketing rain, and downright miserable. If I could sleep I think I would go back to bed for the day.......!!! However the bundle of ironing that says hello to me when I open the cupboard where it is kept will have to be tackled.
    Will do that once I have finished this cup of tea and my Toast & Jam. I am at my usual table by the window as usual. Have you noticed that "snoopy" has not passed by recently!! A few people have thought about calling in but have hesitated. Maybe now Jasmine has gone to her new home they might come in!!
    Ok! loads of goodies in the new Cooler Cabinet for during the day. Lots of nice scones and pancakes as well.
    (((((hugs))))) by the door for those who need them. See you all during the day. xxx

  5. Good morning, oh my Maria what are you doing in here so early??? I can see you have been busy thank you for your help. Two shocks in one week not good. Oh I see you thought you saw a spider!!., Maria the poor wee little will have got a bigger shock than you? Look at the size difference???
    Brenda, I see some of your stunning pottery on display this morning, it's just beautiful. I hope your throat is a little bit better today, and if not please be careful and don't over do things.
    Karen, another beautiful knit, your jumper is gorgeous.
    Patricia, I recognise these beauties, as always your flowers are stunning and can transform these simple gift bags in to a special gift bag.
    Well the weather, doesn't look like it's going to be much better than yesterday, oh when are we going to get some good warm days? Oh that will be as from Tuesday when our schools go back. The children that haven't been away abroad will all be milk bottle white as they say, ok I hear you a sun tan isn't good, but a healthy glow is? The boys didn't get out at all yesterday as it did nothing but pour with rain, Tammy was saying that a good pair of waterproof boots would be more needed than school shoes! Which by the way problem was solved, Tammy took Calum to a shop that sold the cheap sort of trainer things he wanted - none were comfortable so he is happy to go back to school with his geox ones. The thing is some of these trainers are more expensive than a proper pair of shoes!!.,
    To think this time last week Sandra and Paul were packing that expandable car of theirs, I wonder how much stuff they have already discovered they need not have taken with them? Talking about packing I have to make a start on what I am taking on holiday? I am off down to Grantham this weekend, the next one is little Andrews Birthday party then it's a week and a bit and Patricia and I will be away, so I will need to put the thinking cap on. We mix and match and don't take to much that's for sure. Talking about me going to Grantham it's a pity none of you live between there and East midlands airport as we could have maybe arranged a quick visit. Never mind. Right off to get some toast and a cup of tea. xxx

    1. It'a a shame I don't drive as the Midlands airport is just over an hours drive up the M1 from us, It's along way for you to come down ?
      Oh I know it is a size different Hihi but it dosn't help, especially when you think you see one. Grey / blue patchy sky here with some light wind but sure it will rain later. The poor kiddies, not much of sun for them this summer. Have a nice day xxx

    2. Call me old fashioned Hazel - but trainers completely spoil a lovely smart school uniform! They are strange things - people pay way more for those sometimes than the rest of an outfit put together! Xxx

      Delete
    3. Oh theirs no way he would get trainers for school except of games, but he was in such a mood about having to wear proper shoes. So she thought let him see what the trainers he wanted would feel like. Calum suffer from sensory processing disorder and feels things very easily so if they feel uncomfortable to normal children he feels it 10 times more. He wears .geox shoes and trainers as they are padded, comfortable and fit him with his special insoles. Plus our Tammy is so hot on wearing school uniform properly. Unfortunately Calum's friends mum doesn't care, her two go to school with what ever they want. Calum now is hapoy to wear his shoes. Excerise worked. Xxx

      Delete
    4. Hazel, have a safe trip down to Grantham and a lovely time with your family. My son and daughter in law use that airport if at all possible as it's not so busy as Birmingam and nearer I think for them too. Xxx

      Delete
    5. Hi Hazel that was a brilliant plan! Proper school shoes all the time was my moto. Emma did go for some brogue ones when she was at the end of secondary school but after going through several pairs of cheap ones she decided to go for DMs- they are still going strong and were well worth the additional money! Xxx

      Delete
    6. It's going to be one of those trips down Saturday back up Sunday. We normally go by car, but I think it would be to long for me sitting. So flying and hiring a car. Tammy just wants to see her God father more than anything, he has been having chemo after his bowel cancer. They have been a big part of her life. Plus it gives her a wee break from her two. Xxx

    7. Diane, Anna got her DMs last year it was the best move, she has size 8 feet so being only 12 at the time the shoes were either babyish or to grown up, where the DMs worked,still going strong and the other thing her feet don't look big in them. Yes they were dear but she didn't need winter boots or another pair of shoes. Xxx

    8. When my two boys were at school, they loved their DMs and they lasted them all year. Really great for the winter x

  6. Good morning ladies, we have a dry morning with a promise of a wee bit sun , I can hardly contain my excitement! I am playing in the Walk on Open at the Golf Club today so it will make it so much more enjoyable.
    Brenda I also love your little butterfly dish it is adorable. Karen the sweater is very stylish I love how the pattern is on the sleeves, someone is going to be very lucky!
    Patricia, your bags are beautiful and makes a present even more exciting, the flowers are so delicate and pretty ! I have saved some small plain bags to decorate but have never got round to it yet .Tha lady came for her cards and loved them so I was so pleased , you just never know if they are what they imagined , such a relief when they are.
    Just called in for my tea and toast, left some fresh homemade raspberry and strawberry jam for the scones ( Iain now makes it) and it's yummy! So hope you enjoy!
    Love Sue's striplet

  8. Morning Ladies

    What a brilliant collection of crafty makes today.
    Brenda-all 3 of your crafty items are just so pretty, especially the butterfly bowl.

    Karen-gorgeous knitting, you must have the patience if a saint.

    Patricia-WOW!! Gift boxes, gift bags-they always look professional, just beautiful.

    It's rained again overnight but has stopped but looking at the sky, not for long. Hubby has gone out early to hit some golfballs as there's no competition fir him to play in today. Its a festival weekend which he doesn't enter. I'm off to the hairdressers soon-curls will be washed away and my grey hair should disappear!

    I hope no-one here thinks my comment on Sues blog is odd but I just couldn't help myself-Snoopy probably won't like it!!!!!!

    I did pop in last night & read everyone's comments but didn't get chance to add anything. I actually started to make my Father in Laws birthday card -needed for next Saturday.

  9. Morning Sandra and all you lovely ladies,
    Every time I see the various crafts from our lovely gang I am so amazed at the gorgeous creations you come up with.
    BRENDA your pottery is so lovely and like Lynda I adore butterflies and would put them on every thing if I could.
    KAREN what a cute jumper...love it! Wish I had the patience to knit again......and PATRICIA our lovely box/bag maker how wonderful they are and I love the flowers made out of vellum. Thank you to all of you for allowing Sandra to share them with us....I love seeing what everyone gets up to.
    Sorry I've been missing for a few days just felt a bit low probably because I'd had so much company while I was away and every thing seemed to go flat then the horrible weather kicked in.....BUT today is another day and it's Nikki's day today so I know she will put a smile on my face especially as she walks in and has that....'Okay where is my present from your holidays?' look on her face plus the sun is shining.
    Sandra hope you. Paul and the girls are having a great time and the sun is shining on you too.
    SABA so pleased you arrived safely and have now done your clean and can relax a bit now.
    MAREEN I was so pleased to hear you had finally met up with Patricia and Hazel and had a really chatty time and felt as if the 3 of you had been long term friends right from the start.
    Well I'll have one of those lovely scones and a latte and see if any of the others are still here....do hope you have got rid of that smelly cow as much as I love animals they always seem to have dried poop on their backside and that will put me of my scone!! Will leave extra hugs in the basket as I leave and money is in the till and how beautiful the cafe looks today.
    Love to you all

  10. Good morning ladies,

    Sandra, do hope you are all settled in and enjoying your holidays.

    Sorry I have been quiet for a couple of days, it's that time of year for my follow up kidney cancer CT scan. Always get the collywobbles when it's due. Have now got that over with but again my veins in my right arm kept collapsing when they tried to attach the cannula to get the dye through, very painful and sore. Keep saying 'try my left arm' but no, the machine is always on the right side of the table. Perhaps that is easier, I don't know. Feel very drained for a couple of days afterwards.And then in October I go back to the BC clinic for more tests there.
    So today I'm catching up with comments and finding out what you have all been up to.
    Brenda's pottery is always a pleasure to see displayed. So very talented you are.
    And Karen's beautiful little jumper is so gorgeous, I love the colour and pattern.
    Last but not least Patricia's gift bags. We can always count on you to make a simple idea look fantastic, stylish and expensive.

    Sorry to say but after yesterday's rather wet rainy day, I woke up to the most glorious sunshine, white fluffy clouds and a gentle breeze. Don't know how long it is going to last so I'm out to make hay while it's nice. Good washing line weather.
    Love 7 hugs

  15. Cheryl, you have made me happy just knowing you are ok. I know that feeling to well when you go to get tests and check ups after what you have gone though, I am the same got myself so stressed out on my appointment on the Monday before Gillians wedding. I actually set my Polyneuralgia off on a big flare up. Got it hopefully up under control again, with steroids back up to high dose. I got signed off at that appointment. Which was good. Take it easy and don't go turning GC handle until your arm is better. I was black and blue for weeks after my scan as like you my veins aren't good, xxx

  16. Hi Sandra
    I understand you might have Internet access today. So I hope your having a lovely relaxing holiday with your lovely family.
    Littlelamb as usual your pottery is gorgeous, and I hope your feeling a bit better today.
    Karen I love your little jumper,love the colour wool you've used.
    Patricia. Once again you've surpassed yourself with your lovely boxes. Love the flowers on them as well.
    Mrs B I hope you manage to get the hang of your new phone soon. Mine as you know is as old as the hills, and I still can't get the hang of it. Last time I text with it was about 5 years ago. My friend Pat showed me what to do. We were in Gran Canaria and the flight was delayed by 4 days as Gatwick was shut. Such hardship as we were out up in an all inclusive hotel by Easyjet and we'd only booked the flight with them.

  17. Hello everyone,
    Brenda LL, your pottery is beautiful, and are the hearts to be put on cords or chains for a necklace, they are gorgeous anyway.
    Karen, your jumper is so snuggly and will be great for the cooler weather, it's just lovely.
    Patricia, what can I say. You always do such lovely bags and boxes with divine flowers. They are works of art.
    Cheryl, it's lovely to see you back, I hope you are recovering today.
    Myra, how's the water situation and how is your Migraine.
    I haven't managed to get in earlier as George hasn't been up that long, then my laptop decided to restart and it took forever for it to upload the latest whatever, then reading all the comments took a while, and now we are going out for the day to David's oldest daughter's house for a housewarming day!! All the family and friends will be there so it will be a very happy time. Eleanor and Zoe will have a great time as they love David and Trudy's 2 daughters.
    It's a lovely day here today, blue skies and little fluffy white clouds (sorry Patricia) so we'll get out into their garden for a barbecue.
    See you all later.

    1. Hello Maureen,
      Water situation - remains the same! We have a New Page today all about it --- mainly asking for patience and thanking us for putting up with it! We don't actually have a choice.
      Headache almost gone - not doing much today as got the family tomorrow so will just gradually get things ready for that!
      Have a lovely day today with the family and enjoy the barbecue! Xxx

    9. Thanks Diane, they are under the same restrictions as we are! It must be much more difficult with small children. I know some were afraid to bath the children in case they swallowed the water. Ours a little older so should understand. Anyway at Grandma's they have pink lemonade! Grandad always pretends we have run out of it - but they don't believe him! They say that Grandma will have another bottle !
      What a reputation! Xxx

  18. Morning Sandra and ladies,
    Firstly, Brenda love your pottery the earth are so sweet.
    Karen your jumper is amazing, years ago I used to knit lots of things but now arthritic fingers don't work so well.
    Patricia your bags as always are gorgeous, I love your flowers.
    Not much on today, hairdresser at 12.30, then a bit of food shopping, house tidy up, and I have a few cards to make to stock up my space in our wee craft shop.
    I haven't read Sues blog properly today, use left my comment at the end, so will pop back and read Michele's entry. Isn't it amazing that when giveaways are on offer, people crawl out of the woodwork for the chance to win something.
    Sandra I hope you and Paul and the girls are having a great time, and the weather is good for you.
    Off to catch up on last nights comments and some of Sues today.
    Take care everyone, xxx

  21. Hello, Sandra and Everyone,
    It's taken me ages to get here! Still not had that shower! Will be brief as have commented on the way down .
    I do love Saturdays - it so lovely to see what everyone had made.
    Brenda - your pottery as ever is charming. You have shown us such a variety as well! You are a very clever lady. I think some of that has robbed off onto Scarlett!
    Hope the birthday party goes well.
    Diane - you knit some gorgeous little jumpers and cardigans. The patterns are always beautiful too. Someone will be very cosy in that one. Thank you.
    Patricia - what can I say about your bags and boxes that hasn't already been said! Not much really! They are all lovely and I really like the pansies. I know you will have seen I have a Board on Pinterest with some of your lovely things and it does have your name on it. Thank you for sharing and for taking care of things - everything's fine today!
    Have a good day everyone,
    Sending hugs to JEAN and NORAH,
    Miss you,

    1. Hi Jess, I loved that stamp too, it was one I stamped out when I went to a crop class in Hamilton before we moved to Gairloch nearly 8 years ago, I had 5 stped out and that was my last one , it was a Stampendous stamp and I have been trying to get one for myself but no luck yet, so if anyone has one for sale please let us know?

      Delete
    2. Oh I remember that stamp too I think it was called 'At the Altar' and I'm sure I read somewhere that it was discontinued. I wish Stampendous would re-release it on a clear stamp set. Maybe if you email them and ask them if they would.
      Hope you manage to find one Anne and Jess. xxx

  24. Oh Myra, I don't feel so bad now, have been trying to leave a message since before 10 AM - I get sidetracked or the phone rings. Three of the calls have been about PPI Claims. Don't you just hate them! The other two were fine and I needed to take them. Anyway I need to do my hair and put some make-up on, just hope no one comes to the door as I will scared them away. ...... I'm losing the day fast, just had older daughter on the phone for over an hour, lovely talking to her and catching up. Anyway will try and complete my post and hopefully finish it.
    BRENDA, Your pottery is gorgeous love the little dish and the hearts.
    KAREN, Love the jumper, it's gorgeous.
    PATRICIA, What beautiful boxes to put your gifts in, these would make any gift very special. Love them.

    First Brenda sorry I missed your message but will go back when I've done this and have a look. Thank you.
    Sandra - hope you have Tinternet connection and if so enjoy all the rest and sunshine and of course the treats you'll be having.
    Brenda - your pottery never fails to make me fall in love and today's offerings have done just that.
    Karen - your knitting skills are wonderful and I love today's jumper.
    Patricia - once again your boxes are a work of art and I love every one of them.

    We had a nice meal last night at a local Italian. It was on the noisy side but there were three or four families which is always nice to see.

    Have spent all morning trying to make some C.cards and now I'm hooked up to my Tens machine hoping for some comfort.

    Right off to see Brenda's message for me from yesterday. Enjoy the rest of the day but remember it may be Saturdy Night Fever but the boss will be watching. She will you know!!

  26. Hiya, my plans had to change a bit as the sun came out so stripped the beds and did some washing and could hang it out to dry. Then my sister phoned and it was dog talk for over an hour. I love all her dogs ,they are just sooo lovely and not least the puppies but it was not all I want to talk about when we haven't spoken to eachother for some months. Managed to prep for two cards but not sure if that will stay like that, probably changing my mind by tomorrow again. Any news from Norah ,Jean or Margaret and sorry what happened to Wendy ?

  27. Oh my! I was a little surprised to come on here and see another of my knits on show. I love making this one because it's a six row pattern - you cable on row 3 and knit the pattern on row 6. I hope the knitters amongst you understand that! So it's easy to remember the pattern. I sit at night and knit, and it's a case of "ooh I'll just do another six rows and then it's I'll just do another six rows before I go to bed and before I know it it's passed midnight but hey I'll just do another six rows..."
    BRENDA I always love to see your pottery. I had a school friend whose mum used to do it. She even created the dinner service we used to use. I was amazed and fascinated that someone could actually do that!
    PATRICIA Your flowers and boxes are sublime. I wish I was coming to the retreat to have a masterclass in flower making.
    Before I forget I was disappointed when I took the photo of the jumper because in real life it's a lovely shade of powdery denim blue.
    So MARIA which one do you want for Loius, the cardi or this jumper?
    Must dash OH has disrupted my day completely! My sewing machine is misbehaving, so C&C will be getting a phone call - Pfaff don't want to know as I bought it from C&C!

    1. KAREN:- I really like the design on your sweater, got your description and understood.
      Oh! dear! that's not good news about your Sewing Machine. I had to threaten C&C recently with the Ombudsman. I certainly got a quick response ....... the Ombudsman would never have crossed my mind but Margaret (corgi owner)!seems to swear by him!!! So tried her trick and it worked. By Law Pfaff are right it's the supplier who is responsible but you would have thought they would at least have tried to help. I have a Huskvarner Sewing machine which is ancient and could do with being replaced. I don't do the sewing I used to do so a basic machine would do me fine now. I saw a nice Singer basic style machine yesterday in Lidl, I might go back and have another look at it tomorrow.
      Hope you manage to get some joy from C&C xxx

    2. Oh yes Karen. I know exactly what you mean about " I just do another 6 rows" before you know it the back is finished. Pfaff was such a good make of machine years ago. Stand your ground and do go or tell them you will go to " the Ombudsman" that's whatntheynare there for, xxx

    John, Audrey and the boys are in Avimore camping. When I text earlier it was bucketing rain. Have not heard anything since, hopefully the good weather has reached them by now and they can get out.

  35. Evening everybody,
    Had a lovely four hours with Nikki...we had lunch and then as the sun was shining we decided to go for a walk to the beach as it must be at least 10 years since I went down there....now all we had to do was go to the top of our road cross over and walk to the dunes (specially designated walk path)...up and over the dunes and there is the beach! Now Clive and I always said the beach is only 200 yds from our house ( slight exageration or maybe when we were younger it only felt like that! ) well if felt like I had done a half marathon by the time I saw the sea! Then I knew we had to walk back! Boy was I relieved to get through my door.....still Nikki thought my struggling over the dunes was hilarious and I loved to hear that dirty laugh of hers she sounded so happyand it's the first time since we lost her Daddy that she has laughed like that. Had a lovely cuppa when we got back and then before I knew it it was time for her to go. She loved her pressies and was anxious to show her friends when she got home.
    Well to say I was cream crackered after that was putting it mildly so after washing the dishes and a little tidy up I sat down with a coffee and after that fell asleep for 2 and a half hours!!.....it was about 8pm when I was having my tea.I was tired but content.

    Love Sheila xxx

  36. On the subject of grandchildren, when our eldest granddaughter was about 3 she used to stay over for the weekend,,she asked her grandad for something, cant remember what it was, but he said NO! Well she turned to me and started to cry, I said what's the matter, and she said ....grandad said no and grandads are not supposed to say no. What a charmer she was and still is, she will be 26 in December!!

    We had to go shoe shopping today, just like going back to school! Julian's work shoes had split so we had to go shopping. He's got size 13 feet so there's only 1 shop he can get them in and usually has a choice of 2 styles! We called in to see the travel agent too and I gave her a thank you card. She was so pleased and said she hadn't see one as pretty as it before. We had a great time talking about our holiday. Our day finished off with bowling and a meal. Just relaxing watching monsters university ( I think Emma is getting ideas!). She didn't get to the festival last night in the end which was probably a good thing after her early morning! When Julian's aunt got to the festival they wouldn't let her have any guest passes for family - as she said it's not usually a problem but for some reason they weren't available. We haven't heard from them yet to see how it went, they were leaving that festival and going straight on to another one for a gig today - I hope they dried out!

  40. Goodnight Patricia, sweet dreams, I'm going to follow you as I want to put a boil load in the washer as it takes so long to do, I tend to set it off before I go to bed, then it's ready in the morning.
    ANNE, I've been meaning to say that I'm glad you had a good day at golf, even if you didn't win.
    MYRA, have you been a lady all day??
    Goodnight everyone, see you in the morning.
    Anne, I couldn't find the Stampendous stamp, and I've looked all over.

      Sheila- so glad you had a nice time with Nikki but sound like you need a rest tomorrow.
      Karen- I have sent you an e-mail but before you asked which one for Louis. I think a Cardigan would work better for him .he looks quite big around his chin so don't want to strangle him just yet hihi
      I also spent some time on your blog, sorry I missed some days but did catch up. You have made some lovely cards !
      Myra- In my mind I can see anything , sometimes it can put me into trouble oops!
      Going to bed, will look for Simon first but I think it was a dream. Does it mean anything if you dream about spiders ?
