A Gift

Hi All. Nice to see you at Jumbled Crafts

Thank you for your support yesterday. I am sure you will be pleased to know that everything is now sorted out-well it will be when Vic demolishes the old plant house and we get a new one. Sarah--the owner of the stray trampoline said she would send someone to take the trampoline apart so that it could be moved and then be taken as scrap to be recycled as it was badly bent. By the time the chap arrived Vic had taken it to bits and all they had to do was remove it from our garden to Sarah's. She also told Vic to order a new plant house and he found the same one online and she paid for it and for the delivery charge. Another neighbour offered space in his greenhouse as a haven for our plants until their new home is in place. What a wonderful neighbourhood we live in :)

I even found time to craft in the afternoon and made a little gift. It is a tissue holder and holds a small packet of tissues

I made it for the Challenge at Try it on Tuesday where the theme is to make a gift or a tag. It also fits in at Allsorts  and Crafty Creations where the theme at both is 'Anything except Christmas'

I found a pattern here though you may not be too keen on the language in the first sentence the pattern is easy and the end product looks good.

Have a lovely day everyone

    Oh my, I didn't know about your storms. I understand what that can be like living near the Gulf of Mexico, so I'm glad to hear that you are safe and the storm related problems have been worked out. May you, your family, and your property remain safe from this day forward and forever.

    Love to you,
