From Freecycle :D My Sew Craft Blog ladies will appreciate this little windfall, it came in one of those big tough plastic shopping bags you use for shopping too, doubly good for the environment! I have loads of cotton on big reels, foam (for hubby's daft hats) and tapestry items. I do LOVE Freecycle :D Just yesterday I picked up a spotless AEG almost silent running dishwasher for free too AND some tab top voile net curtains for one of my sets of patio doors! I have saved well over £300 this week as a guestimate! Woohoo!

I made these as part of an 8 by 8 scrapbook for my dad for his birthday, I printed the digi layouts I have done previously and made a couple of normal pages and assembled half a scrapbook for him, with other pages to be sent as I make them so he gets surprises in the post! Kind of a prolonged pressie experience!x Sally x

I made this card for the MIL back last month, using the tea bag folding technique Angeline taught me at demo night before I left Gib, and a pattern from Papercraft Inspirations I believe. The papers are Laura Ashley, beads, ribbon etc, generic.

These are for you!
I made these hats and flares for my husbands stage wear in his bands back when we lived in Cyprus and Gibraltar. I thought I would share them. They chose the designs, fabric, garishness and sillyness! So DON'T blame me for that... just following orders!
I did not do the shirts or the Elvis type outfit for the singer, but the rest is me.
Flared Jeans and silly top hats a speciality! Hehe! They liked to amuse the audience and it certainly helped them in being remembered. They were such fun!
I LOVE the Union Flag hat :D Proud to be British!
I am back online! Thank you SKY for not letting us down like BT and Tiscali did. And what amazing service they provide too.
I will start posting cards and scrap pages I have made in the meantime as soon as I can (need to locate the camera cables, lol - BOTH are on the missing list! Argh!) and we are back off and running!
I will be spending time in the next few days catching up on your blogs commenting.... I have missed you all sooooooooo much! I have had so many messages while I have been gone, I am a lucky girl to have so many online friends! Believe me you are not taken for granted!

I don't have many cards or pages to show I am afraid but thought I would share some photos! Also, good news, internet should be on on the 16th! Woohoo! Fingers crossed this time everyone ;D
One of the pics is from Woolwich Common, the other 2 is from kiddies 2 and 3's new school, very traditional looking eh? It has amazing charm.
