Soft Pink

Cold, grey and very damp today but no snow!  Mr C had to go to the doc yesterday as although he was no worse, he was no better.  Guess what ... it's a virus!  If he's no better by Monday he's to go back again.  Daughter is in bed too but she's got a different virus!  I was running about yesterday like a blue a***d fly getting shopping for us (we won't starve now) and shopping for her (they won't starve either!).  I really didn't mind as I wasn't doing anything else.  I bumped into a couple of friends when I was in town and had a cuppa and a scone with them, yum!  I'm really late getting this posted today.  I was out all morning at class and have been trawling the internet this afternoon looking for a birthday pressie for Mr C and my granddaughter.  Needless to say I still don't have a pressie for my friend ... aaah!  Hope you are all fit, well and warm.

PS - I'm really sorry that this piccie is at such an angle.  The whole thing looks all squint but it's perfect IRL - honest!

A lovely clean and simple card Anne, the image is gorgeous. Works beautifully with the paper piecing. All my cards are a bit crooked looking, I am convinced I must have a cooked eye lol. Hope you find something for the pressies and all the patients get better soon.

Sorry, but I had a giggle at the last post you sent me.
