Another busy week with some dry days, but I do not like these early dark nights, I don't want to do anything once dark!!
I made another quilt at weekend for a neighbour to gift a friend.

Difficult to photograph, very bright sunshine washed out the colours and in the shade it looked very dark. Anyway she loved it. I liked the rosebud backing for the baby girl lol.

The washer is on so after the frost melts, it will be out in the sunshine to dry. An exciting day tomorrow, after work I am off to see Dennis Lochierre from Dr Hook...... my favorite group... in concert, (an early Christmas present) I have been excited all week !

Evening all.....

Today I had my hall/stairs/ landing carpet fitted. So needing to keep out out the way, I went in the craft room. I have made 4 cards using my win at Polkadoodles last week..... the fitters kept coming in to see what I was doing lol.....

and then I love this one

such a cute little man !!
Challenges;

Christmas with the cuties-----------------cute animals

Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas challenge--------------anything Christmas

A snowflakes promise ----------------------anything goes

I am all done now and love my decorating, (it was to dark to take a picture) now I need to start cleaning all the dust from all the rooms after 4 weeks  and get order restored. ! I must say they did a really good job, took away waste carpet bits, and cleaned up as they went along. It was so funny when they came and asked if they could go upstairs, I said of course, how would they fit the landing carpet otherwise... they said... just checking in case someone is in the shower !!! I WOULD HAVE BEEN THE ONE MOST SURPRIZED IF THERE HAD BEEN ... LOL !!!!

I hope the winds did not affect you too much.... the sky and sun were just sooooo amazing !!
