lazy Sunday



Hello........ I hope you are well on this lovely Sunday afternoon.
Yesterday, Aunty Sue bought me a ticket for the Leigh craft Fayre and I am still in recovery !!!
We walked around for 6 hours and still did not get round all the stalls, not because there were to many.....just that Aunty Sue has to look at every single thing on each stall!! I had to get on my knees at 1.15pm and beg for a sit down and a cup of coffee, I also bought us a jacket potato for the strength to carry on..............Of course Aunty Sue spent far to much money, but I'm sure she needed all the stuff (like a hole in the head lol) I was more restrained and just bought MORE ribbon, cards which were a bargin, 2 stickles and a die, I also got a die from Aunty Sue for my birthday present!


Today's card is a sympathy one for the family of Sandra (Dec o cards) on do-craft. It was such a shock to hear of her passing, she was a lovely lady who lived nearby and who I met on craft retreats and craft meets at Warrington. She loved the craft fayres and her local craft shop. She loved her cat and was an active member of her local Church, Rest in peace Sandra.
