Hi folks - I'm BAAAAACK

and wanting to thank you all for messages of support both here and on craftbubble and texts too - it's so lovely of you all to think of me. I've had lots of lovely hand made cards from pals too, and I hope to post a photo of all of their lovely makes sometime soon. Just wanted to say how much it's been appreciated to know that so many of my pals have been thinking about me in my absence.

I've had a hip replacement and all went well and I feel as though I am making good progress - my physio is pleased with me ...... small world when I found that not only is he the godson of a friend of mine but also that I went to school with his dad!!!! ALSO another patient ended up in the bed opposite my own and we share a close friend in common - SPOOKY? I should say so.

The hospital I was in was fabulous and everyone so friendly, nothing seemed too much trouble for anyone I encountered, from the cleaners upwards - even the food was good! Such a change from previous hospital experiences too though, with the best will in the world I AM hoping that will be an end to it for a while now!

Saturday is normally my day for crafting challenges and there are a few of them .....

Over on Bah Humbug this week's challenge is to make a Christmas card "WITH MEN IN MIND"!!! YIKES

On the Simply Less Is More blog their present challenge is to make a Clean And Simple card using POLKA DOTS!

I'm anxious to get back and crafting. My pal, Debbie, came in to visit Barbara and I and brought me in a magazine which just so happened to be Quick Cards and lo and behold there's my ugly mug on page 61!!! Woo Hoo - the staff teased me about "knowing me before I was famous"!! I also spotted fellow crafters Ann Banks and Sharon Noble in the same issue as well as articles by Katina Killey and Katie Berberich, both talented crafters.

Anyway, happy Saturday - I'm off to do my physio exercises and practise crafting on my crutches - which I just KNOW will be returned to the hospital COVERED in glitter (purple of course!).
