Smiles on Friday

Happy Friday Smilers!

Another week gone so I'm linking up with Annie on her Stitch in Time blog where she invites us every Friday to share things that have made us smile during the week.

I think I probably smiled a lot this week.  It's been very busy but mainly with good things.

I visited my friend Jacky a couple of days ago.  She's recovering from a replacement knee operation and I'm sure she'll soon be feeling like a new woman when all the pain has gone.

On Sunday I went to the craft show at Stoneleigh with my friend Wendy where we both spent more than we probably should have.  Here is what I came home with plus a lot of double sided tape and other essentials .

We met up with Di who hosts The Snippets Playground challenge and Mrs. A who hosts The Butterfly Challenge.  It was wonderful to meet them both in person.   We certainly had a good natter and I'm sure I smiled a lot too!

I hope you'll all enjoy a happy weekend.

  13. Hi Barb,
    I'd say you have lots of new treats to play with! How great to meet some wonderful new crafters. I met Di several years ago when she and Len were in New Mexico, USA. We got on the minute we saw eachother.

    Your friend will be so happy with her total knee replacement. I've had both of mine done now and am so happy I did. The last one was a little over a year ago and it still bothers me a bit but they say it takes about 18 months to fully recover. Tell her to keep up with the physical therapy.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Hugs,
    Kay
