Thanks Kathy for sticking by me. Here I am after 8 months and thanks to you I am finally motivated to come back to the tea parties. My craft room is in reasonable order now and I could find most of the things I was looking for. The worst thing was I was all thumbs tying the little bow and I used to be able to tie much smaller ones than this. Oh well I'm sure it will all come back with a bit of practise. This week's recipient really saddened me. Having just done the whole retirement move thing, I know how exciting it is to buy your dream retirement home and then to have it all taken away from you so suddenly, well I just don't know how you cope. Hopefully our cards will bring a spot of joy. Here is my card.
