I Have been Busy

 I would like to wish my gorgeous friend Barb a very happy birthday for today and i hope all your dreams come true Barb and that you are spoilt rotten.
 I finished the drum last night for the xmas wreath (pic top right hand side of blog) i am slowly getting there,
 These are what i have finished at the moment,still a few more to do yet before i can start on the wreath.
 I have been busy freezing tomatoes from the garden,i will use these instead of tinned tomatoes and for tomato soup,i still have heaps more to do.
 I got to spend some tie with my lovely friend Carol on Saturday and she surprised me with this beautiful tin (pic below) thankyou Carol so much,it is already in use.

 And here is the lovely Elyte with her lovely scissor fob which was given to her by Susan.
Hope you all have a wonderful day

I was going to show you what i made Cheryl,but i dont think i took any pics,if i did i cant find them,lol,i will have to pinch them when Cheryl gets a chance to take some pics.
 This is our lovely friend Maria and she made sure that Cheryl had a special day at our Gail Pan workshop on Saturday,she made a beautiful cake with fondant icing and had a 60th balloon for Cheryl and Maria also made Cheryl a miniature bear,it so so cute.

Oops nearly drove off with it sitting on the car roof,lol.
