Busy Day, Mini and OFW…

Oh No!!!!  It’s 11. 15 pm and I still haven’t done my post. Have had a busy day which started with this….


Brekky at the beach cafe for one of our bobbers..
Then home to do a load of washing before going to lunch and playing cards…. on the way home I went to visit a friend to drop of a ruler and have a cuppa….Must say retirement is tiring …… LOL….

Yesterday I received these lovely parcels from Tania…


This was Tania’s first ever swap and look at the beautiful Mini she has made.. Love it..  She also spoilt me with yummy chocolates and a sweet lavender bag…and the card even matched the Mini...

Flower Mini from Tania. 2013

Thank you Tania and also Swap Mum  Cheryll for organising this swap……

After many weeks of away I have finally joined Karen and the other lovely ladies for OFW... do pop over to see what others have been working on...


Have added another row and now I need to made some more stepping stones..

Must away shower and go to bed.  Goodnight.
