Friday Smiles

Happy Friday Everybody.

First I would like to welcome my new friends  PJ, Judy and Maarit. I'm  happy that you've joined me here.

 It would be really nice if you are able to visit them.

 Wednesday was my Birthday and these are all the handmade cards I had from friends from the club.  I also had a few crafty presents but unfortunately couldn't fit them into the photo.

I had a lovely week which began on Sunday with a workshop at Loobi Crafts with friends.  On Monday the same two friends took me out for a carvery which was delicious.  On Wednesday hubby took me and two of our friends out for a great Chinese meal and to cap it all I ate chocolate.  My first for a couple of months as I'm trying to lose a bit of weight before Christmas.

I'm linking up with Annie's blog A Stitch in Time where she invites us to join her for Friday Smiles - things that we have enjoyed during the week.

I'm also linking to Lisca's new friend Virginia who also invites everyone to talk about their week on her blog.

A happy weekend to you all.

  6. Wow! You have had a pretty good week! Belated happy birthday to you!
    I just love those handmade cards. Each and every one of them is made with care and love. Isn't that something. I like the teabag folding. I didn't think people did that anymore, I'm glad they do as it is so beautiful and very effective.
    I will visit your new friends. I have a new friend too (Virginia at Celtic House). She does a blog on Friday (Rocking Your World Friday) about how your week went. What you did today would fit perfectly. Here is the link:

  9. Oh it is so lovely to have another new face, Barb, thank you for joining in this week. I hope you have a lovely birthday, the cards are all gorgeous - obviously lots of your friends enjoying crafting. Oh and a crafting workshop - fab stuff - haven't done one of those for ages either.

    Aren't you being good losing weight before Christmas, I find losing weight difficult at most times but nearly impossible at this time of year!
