"All Done & Dusted"

Hello Blog friends, can you believe it......the weekend is upon us once again!!!
Where did the past week go???
Thank you for taking time to call by today.
I decided I just HAD to get Hazel`s order "Done & Dusted.    Now that it is out of the way I can get down to some serious "Playing"........................... well, that`s what I thought till Elaine phoned to say my cabinet at the Tearoom was needing filled up again.  I was there yesterday and it looked OK.  However she had sold a few cards today so needs some more to fill up spaces.
It is great that I can get them sold, so better just knuckle down and get working.
Thank you for all your kind comments on John`s and his knees.  Still in lots of pain so looks like another night in the spare room for him.  He has some "Magic" cream that is made up by an assistant to a Pain Consultant.  That helps a lot and it works so much better than anything the doctor has prescribed.  Rather expensive but what`s money is it helps give pain relief.  Unfortunately due to some crazy European ruling some of the ingredients are being banned for import to this country.  Hazel managed to get him a few jars which we thought would last ages.  If he keeps slathering it on the way he is, it will not last as long as we thought.......happy days!!!!

OK! here are Hazel`s six boxes of six cards all ready for delivery.
I think they look quite pretty even though I say it myself.   I would love to get something like that as a little gift.  Once the cards are finished you still have a nice box that can be used.

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for your visit and all your lovely comments I really appreciate each and every one.  
Till next time

    Thank you so much for dropping by my blog and leaving a lovely comment on my fleecy crazy patchwork cushion.

  24. Hi Patricia - thanks for the comments on my card, I thought I would reciprocate and pop over to your blog for a nosey - lol!!! I loved all the cards you made and put on your last post - I found a favourite, then found another favourite and gave up 'cos they are all great. Love these little boxes as well - my favourite colour - our bedroom, car and my laptop are all PURPLE!! So yummy!

    I do hope John feels a bit better soon - I do sympathise.

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
