Wot no crafting?

That is correct. I still have nothing crafty to show you. With a major choral concert, rehearsals, Slimming Word, huge announcements at work, Slimming World club and a family member's house move to contend with, I've not had a spare hour in the day (or night LOL!).

So you'll have to put up with another photo of non-craftiness again! I thought you might enjoy this glimpse of Tallis, one of our three dogs, enjoying himself on the beach. The photo was taken during our holiday on the Isle of Wight last month. Tally really did enjoy himself!

Failing successfully!

I think that's what I'm doing right now - failing successfully to keep a regular flow of posts on my blog. It is supposed to be a crafty-themed blog, and the truth is, I've got no new pix to show you that fir the category. I forgot to take pics of the 90th birthday word book I made. I haven't got round to taking a snap of my my most recent LO (it was from a class taught at PaperArts but was also going to be used for the UKS cyber crop, and I didn't want to post anything up before the crop ....).

So a photo from my happy snaps album it will have to be. I love stained glass windows and can't resist taking photos of them. I am always amazed at how well they turn out. No idea where this one is from, except that it's in a church on the Isle of Wight! (That's helpful, isn't it LOL!!)

About time!

I admit it. I have not posted for ages. I've not created for ages- well, nothing I've taken photos of, anyway! I have spent money on stash (went to the Hobbycrafts show at the NEC and came home with a Cricut cart, embossing folders, an MDF house book, book rings, blooms, magazines, some Promarkers and a few other bits and pieces). I have pretty much finished a word book for a rellie's 90th birthday - no pix yet, sorry. I have made some 'with sympathy' type cards for my mum to use, and for a friend whose lovely mum sadly died of cancer a few weeks ago. But no pix of anything crafty.
So I will have to show you a pic of something else, instead, I thought. Which is why you have a slightly arty-farty photo of some teasels posing against a background of The Needles, Isle of Wight. I've got to say, that holiday seems like sooooooooooooooo long ago now!
And yes, I have realised this is the unedited version - complete with wonky sea horizon! But you get the drift .....
