"May I come in ... PLEASE"

Hellooooo!!! Bloggers, I know, I know it`s been a while.  
I have so missed Blogging, I think I am overcoming my fear of "Blogging"  Well not the Blogging part, just worrying about who is out there looking in and sometimes causing upset. 
That behind me I am "biting the bullet" and having a go once more.
All well here at the Ranch, trees almost bare and rather sad looking.  Crops lifted including the potatoes, Oh! the potatoes WOW!! you should have seen the muddy mess in the village ... the joys of rural living!!!
I am very busy at the moment.  My boys booked a table at their school "Soup on Sunday Fundraiser"  It is next Sunday but they only told me about it just over a week ago.  I was away last weekend with Hazel from Thursday till Sunday evening.  Well that was the theory, it was so late by the time we got back to Hazels where I left my car.   I was so tired I did not have the energy to drive the 50 miles home in the dark so had a sleepover.   I did eventually get home Lunchtime Monday having to wait till the fog cleared a bit before starting out.  
Here is a taste of what I have been making for my table.

I have been making T-Light holders for Battery Operated T-Lights
These are some of the Christmas ones.  I am working on the same idea with Roses (what else) so they can be used all year round

Base for these is Heartfelt Creations Lace Border Die
SB Classic and Lacy Circle Dies
SB and Sue Wilson  Dies for the foliage
Poinsettias from Wild Orchid Crafts

That`s it for today 
Thank you for calling in I really appreciate it
Will be back again during the week when I can draw breath again
Till then

    I've arrived back to front lol!
    Take heart from the fact that the persons problem was directed elsewhere and that they would get short shrift from everyone if there was any nastiness here.
