A Big Thank You.....


 I must show you this really gorgeous card that my pal Kath made for me to cheer me on with my new Fiskars job. She has been so supportive, I have had a rather steep learning curve and she has held my hand for hours (albeit over the phone) and even mopped up a few tears, so a huge thank you to her for her support, and for this gorgeous card. In case you have never visited her blog, you will find her HERE and read about her (very funny) adventures with her dog Buddy, as well as seeing gorgeous creations like this one...... 



Our house is sold! All that tidying and clearing paid off. Now the next adventure is to find somewhere to live, so look out for some house hunting tales from me. We have done some quite bizarre house viewings over the years (we have moved house a lot). I remember one house in Gloucestershire where we looked out of the window and Mike whispered 'look at that dead donkey' - there in the field was this enormous donkey, laid out flat, looking dead. By the time we got back down into the kitchen there had been a miracle healing and the dead donkey turned out to be the family dog who was very much alive and the biggest hound I have ever seen. Honestly if they put a saddle on him they could have made a fortune at the seaside taking kids for rides on the sand.

Apparently he spent most of his life motionless, stretched out in the field, and only came into the house looking for food. He was looking longingly at my upper arm, so we beat a hasty retreat......we didn't buy the house....

Then there was.................no, I'll save that for another day, see you tomorrow x

  4. Since your house is sold I hope that you find one soon. It was a little bit funny to read about Gloucestershire here. Usually I find that when I am doing genealogy. My Dad's family came from there many moons ago. Very pretty card that you received.

  17. Lovely card. Great job Kath! There's so much to look at. Love the stitching, and the words of support for you, En. I feel guilty, as I've not been to your FB page in awhile. I will do better. I'm on vacation, and as long as I'm in the motel, I have WiFi. But we've been busy visiting friends and family. But I'm in today, resting the old body, so I'm off to Facebook. Can't wait for more house hunting tales. Glad you sold this one. Hope you get a good crafting space in the new one. Hugs, Jess

  20. What a pretty card. It's so nice to have a special friend who understands what you are going through. Wow, real estate must be moving as fast there as it is in Washington state. Congratulations! Hopefully you will find a place with a nice big area for your craft room.

  22. Fabtastic card. Congrats on selling the house. Your story reminds me of a day at the beach when I had read the sign saying water quality today - Excellent, only to see a bloated dead goat floating in on the tide. If that's excellent I hate to think what a bad day would look like ROFL. Hugz
