Morning All

Hi Everybody

Well I don't know about you, but I had a wonderful weekend.  On Saturday I got to go to Rachel's for a crafty afternoon, ended up by buying a new sewing machine a Huskavana Emerald it arrived on Tuesday and on Sunday well it was my birthday so I got to have a lie in bed and then was brought breakfast, Alan and I then went to Endsleigh Garden Centre as I bought all Rachel's old spectrum noir pens off of her so needed more storage for them, but ended up ordering the storage from Crafter's Companion.  I was then whisked off to the Treby Restaurant which is a Michelin Star as Anton the Chef won Master Chef a couple of years ago, very expensive but what a treat.

Monday woke up early as I needed to sort myself out as I had an Occupational Therapist coming around to assess our kitchen to see if we can get a grant to enable me to use the cooker as at the moment I can't use the oven or grill as I can't bend down enough to put things in or take out so just awaiting a report on that but Jamie the Occ Health guy does not hold out much hope but he says he will give it his all to try and sort something out for us, but we will probably just end up going ahead with the kitchen anyway.

Tuesday I took delivery of my new sewing machine and as it didn't come until quite late in the day the only thing I did was oooh'd and haaa'd and stroked it, will be playing today at some point have a few projects on the go so will finish a couple of them and blog them over the next few days

The only thing I have made over the last few days is more candles I tried to make my cupcake candle in two different colours and this is what it looks like

I have been making a concentrated effort to catch up with everyone's blogs as I let things slip my birthday weekend and Monday sort of got away from me so please bear with me whilst I catch up.
Love Alison
