Busy week....

phew i am worn out, i have had a very productive week, since the begining of the crafty weekend up until yesterday morning i have produced this little lot, no wonder i was a bit tired yesterday, thought the headache was the cider lol but think it was because i was tired and ended up in bed by 8pm last night, and before anyone says anything it was one half pint of cider to quench my thirst lol !!!

now what to make, must carry on only two weeks until the 3 days craft fair!
