Its been a while

Hi All

Its been a while since I spoke to you. Lots have been happening and I have been busy.
I had a great time at the bike fest,  My project "BUSTED KNUCKLE" went down very well and raised a lot of money for Magpas. I also sold a lot of my craft work.

I picked up some orders,so that kept me busy for a while, I put my minis on Ebay and sold the lot!! so pleased. I then got asked to have a table at the Avon Christmas party in December, in aid of cancer,  I have been busy making minis and crafts to sell.

I went to Edinburgh to stay with my son and his wife and of course to see baby Jack, I got him to myself, which was lovely. They have since been home for a few days, so got to hold him again. They will be back at Christmas.

Jan, from the shop asked me to make some small baby gifts to put in her shop.

I finally got my wet room, this has made my life much easier, After that we decided to freshen up the rest of the bungalow, now waiting for the flooring to be done. 

In amongst all this my sister-in-law gave up the fight she was having with cancer,this is a very sad time for the family,she was only 51 and leaves 2 daughters and 3 grandchildren.
Her funeral was last week. Now hopefully my nieces can begin to pick up their lives.

Anyway, I have been busy making loads of stuff for my table top sale, I will be having a mixture of minis and crafts, this week I need to sort out what I have made and to see what else I need to do.

So you can see I have  been busy, life is beginning to slow down so  hopefully I will now be back to blogging, I have missed it, I have been keeping up to date  with all your blogs and your lovely work.

Right her is the evidence in the form of photos.

Hi Debbie! What a lot of catching up to do, but it is great to hear from you again!
Congratulations on such a fine young Grandson! Baby Jack is very handsome and certainly has been blessed with a fair amount of hair too!
Congratulations also on the success of your Busted Knuckle bike shop project. That must have been a great feeling to have raised money for a good cause.
I am so sorry to hear about your sister-in-law's passing as I know that you have already suffered a loss earlier in your family. I know that it must hurt a lot, but the new baby must make you smile!
I am delighted to hear about your successful sales too and hope that you will not get too stressed with the coming holidays and the work ahead of you. I know that you can do it and I look forward to seeing your new minis on your blog in the weeks to come.

elizabeth :D

Hello Debbie
The baby is so adorable! You look so great and happy holding him in your arms.
As usual, your miniatures are wonderful.
No wonder they were sold out.
Hugs, Drora

Looks like life had you by the tail with ups and downs. I am glad that in the midst of it all you still had time for your minis.
Kiss that little cutie for me. He is adorable!
