Good Saturday morning Ladies,
Well I guess that I know that you will all be having a relaxing weekend as most of you have no choice, We are lucky in a way as we all have the most amazing hobby that most of us now have more time to take part in! I have been sitting in the craft room just so that I can't hear the news, particularly as all news channels are just recycling the same news, it's just so depressing.
The news yesterday bought a lot of worry and anxiety to our house, with the new sanctions announced last night that all Pubs, Clubs, Restaurants etc were to close as of last night, this meant that Becca and her partner Adam who are Manager and Head Chef on a Pub/Restaurant/Hotel, they have no job for the foreseeable future and have a large mortgage and rent to cover let alone all the other household bills, they are both anxious. Sophie and Lucy are also in the same position as the Wild Life Park Restaurant has closed as well as the Gift shop and train, I think that they are keeping the grounds open for people to walk around. So ours wasn't the happiest house last night, hopefully they can get some help.
I think that if people do actually start staying at home doing as instructed we may get this whole thing over a little bit faster. I will say that I thought that the way people were bring rounded up in China seemed harsh but now I can kind of understand it, if people are still meeting up in groups in pubs etc they are being selfish so under the circumstances they should be rounded up! (Rant over).
My Knees are killing from getting up and down from that bloody soapbox this week!!
Karen has shared two more of her Crocheted Animals from the A-Z of Animals that she is creating for Oscar, these two cuties are...
N = Nanny Goat
J = Jay
As always Karen you have put so much incredible detail into your animals, I love their expressions. You are so amazingly talented Karen.
Karen is taking a break for Crocheting A-Z animals for a couple of weeks and is now making a Dog for the charity box, you are always so kind and generous my lovely.
Thank you so much for sharing your Crocheted Animals Karen xxx
Michele's Magazine Review
This months issue of Diecutting Essentials has a fantastic free gift.
Here’s some ideas of what’s inside the magazine.
First feature using the free gift.
More projects to make using the free gift.this would be good for wedding favours, Christmas or children’s parties.
Great feature on Shadow box cards-they look so impressive.
Interesting article on multicoloured Embossing.
That’s all for this week,
Love Michele x
Michele thank you so much for another fantastic magazine review, I love the free gift and there is loads of inspiration for them.
The Shadow box feature is great too, as is the Pixie Powder or 'explosion of colour' feature at the end.
As always Michele I know that you are so busy at work so THANK YOU so very much for making time to write our magazine review. xxx
I think that the two posters I have shared today work perfectly with things as restricted as they are right now.
I hope that you have a lovely weekend, our plans have changed as we were planning on going to Colchester to visit Mum but as she had Chronic COPD I am not prepared to risk taking any germs over to her, she was disappointed that we cancelled, she had also just heard that my sister had cancelled taking her out for Mothers Day, but needs must, I hope that deep down she understands bless her.
Paul is now having to work the weekend so we wouldn't have been able to go anyway, so plenty of crafting here this weekend.
Love and hugs to all of you,
