We have had some awfully sad news, a friend of my husbands for around 30 years, was in a vehicle last week in Afghanistan that went over a landmine, you may have seen it in the news if you are UK based, 2 marines were killed outright and an Afghan Soldier, with 1 (hubby's childhood friend) being very severely injured. Please spare a thought, prayer, love - what ever is your way, from your heart to wish him a speedy recovery and love to the 3 other families involved. We still don't know the extent of the injuries and daily wait for news.
This is what Help the Heroes is all about.
I am getting quite into the stitching after a demo we had at Craft Club the other evening (what a SUPERB turn out for that! Loads of new faces again!) and have a couple more cards I have made which I will pop on here soon. Designs are from Stitching Cards - some free downloads!

I am in awe of the wonderfulness that are my children! This pic is when they first appear marching on stage in their Sound of Music stage production. The 2 girls are mine, the boy in the middle I have smudged his face as I would need to ask permission for his face to be shown on a blog. I had centre front row seat!! The Governer of Gibraltar and the Minister of Culture have requested that they run an extra night as it is sold out and so many people still want to see it! They have had rave reviews and have been in all the local mags and papers. I am so proud :D
Their Stagecoach school went to watch on Tuesday to see 3 of their pupils in a full stage production (the little girl who played Gretel is also a pupil).
They have worked so hard for so long, giving up their outside activities (apart from Stagecoach) and it was just perfect.
I could go on, but I think you get it now!

The girls had their opening night last night of the Sound of Music and by all accounts it was a resounding success, with standing ovations! We have heard nothing but good things - we cannot wait to go see it, we have front row seats for Thursday and are soooooooo excited!!
Whilst they were being stars of the stage, I went to darts and we won 9-0!! Woweeee!! Good night all round!
Yesterday in the day we had Debbie at Decorative Crafts here in Irish Towns 'Subway' Craft day, so lots of goodies made and bought there too lol. Can't wait to try out my 'Glitter Flocking Powder' on my next Christmas cards! Chose and bought a few extra bits to put aside for my birthday in a couple of weeks (I will act surprised I promise!!).
Hope all in well in your world and happy voting USA!
