Big warning - this is a long post

 Saturday was a great day.  My Daughter and I went to an Arts and Crafts event in Ironbridge, Shropshire at the Maws Craft Centre.  The weather was beautiful, sunny and warm with a gentle breeze. We set up our tables and sat talking to other artists, painting and eating.  A truly wonderful day!!  We didn’t sell much but it didn’t matter.

 My daughter is painting amazing horse portraits in oils while I love my watercolour skies and flowers.

Afterwards we went back to my dd for a barbecue and I got these lovely pics of Daisy playing with her new inflatable which she’s named Sealicious.

Another LO in the making I hope.

Since my move the time has been flying by, my days have been filled with trying to furnish my flat on a tight budget, filling out endless forms to apply for benefits and still going through the  round of highs and lows over my own circumstances and my husband and son’s illnesses. I don’t know where I’d be without my little bolthole to run back to after another week of upsets.  I am having serious withdrawal from crafting but am slowly getting sorted.

I made this little key house for myself, in the vain hope that I wont spend half the day looking for keys to something or other. Forgot to put the hooks on before I took the photos!!
My eyes are getting as bad as my memory !! Lol

Talking of which I’m so sorry I haven’t been visiting your blogs  lately, the screen plays havoc with my focussing so I cant stay around for long.  Hopefully as my life settles into a more sedate pattern I will be able to craft and blog more.  In the meantime, have a good week everyone. xx

Thank you for dropping by, I truly appreciate all your visits and comments. xx
