Friday smiles!

Hello my dear bloggy friends! 

Today I am joining in with the blog event that Wipso from A stitch in time has set up called Friday Smiles! I think I haven't participated yet - this will be my first time.....
Anyway I was looking through some photos of the past month. As some of you know me and my DBF went to visit my friend Jo from Jozart in Liverpool! We also went to a quilt shop where I had my quilt quilted . Of course they have a lovely shop there and girls wouldn't be girls if we wouldn't go and have a bit of look around the shop!
 The boys were very good - patiently waiting for us to come out (actually I think they had a little snooze he, he) Still ladies I don't recommend you leave your boys waiting too long because as you can see, one of the guys who had to wait a bit too long isn't looking very good! :-)!



Have a smile and a lovely day! 
Lots of hugs to all of you,
CARDARIAN

WOYWW, Paris........and life has to go on!

Good evening dear friends!

I am back after 2 weeks absence!  We had a lovely crop! I am sure everybody saw LLJ's post about it but if you didn't it is here. What a lovely gathering of friends! I have a few photos but really they are not as close as good as the ones Jan took! So have a look! 
Now I think nobody can avoid blogging about this past weekends horrible attacks in Paris! I didn't know about them until the following morning! And I was just sooo shocked! So many young lives lost! Oh I can not imagine all the mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends grieving for their loved ones!
This evening BBC news showed a lovely message on facebook of a young man Antoine Leiris who lost his wife in the Bataclan Theatre attack saying: "I will not give you the gift of hating you" - food for thought!
I made a journal page about the Paris attacks .....a tribute to all 129 lives lost!

But as we all know life must go on........as much worrying this world is becoming! 
Soo.....I am starting with my desk as we do every Wednesday.....

I am making Christmas cards - I had a few days off having a bad cold but the production line is back in full force! The cold hasn't gone yet but my laid back ways have now made me panick - huh! 
Here are a few examples of my Christmas card attemps:







 
I did also make a couple of  birthday cards.... an autumn theme  as you can see....




and as last something I have been working on every evening watching television and sewing away - yes I am making a Christmas wreath out of Suffolk puffs! I just love how it is slowly coming together! It is not finished yet but I am getting there....I will have to think of some dangling bits now.....

Ok then - I think that is it for today, I want to stay up and do things but this cold wants me to go to bed - huh!
Lovely friends thank you for joining this lovely WOYWW group! You are such a lovely bunch! Peace and love to all of you!
