Sad News...

Hi Crafty Friends,

I'm so sorry that I have not been around much of late. My father-in-law, who had not been well, passed away peacefully last weekend surrounded by my mother-in-law, sister-in-law, my husband and myself. He will be greatly missed by all his family and friends...

I will be back as soon as I can, so please bear with me...
