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 !!

What a very busy week it has been. 3 days in Doncaster helping my friend with McMillan coffee day, hard work but enjoyable, my car failed it's MOT so I went trusting to luck and good fortune that the brake pipe would not fail!! The car went in on Monday and came back healthy on Wednesday afternoon. I have also had the decorator in all week doing hall, stairs and landing. I took the carpets up before I went to Doncaster and took them to the tip. Also I have worked Wednesday and Thursday morning. I kept out of his way by going in my room and making 7  Christmas cards. The painting should finish today, but I am also a lady who lunches.... a friends birthday.
Hope you have time to join us

What a wet and windy week !! I thought September was a mild and mellow month ?? not this year. It has gone much colder so the fire has been going on in the evening. I am finishing off some Christmas wreaths today to take to McMillan coffee day, they sold well last year, so another 4 will be going with me, as well as baby quilts and gift bags. I hope you have all had a good week.
