Bore da I chi heddiw.

Dydd Dewi Sant Hapus.

Can you believe it is March 1st already – St David’s Day – and not a daffodil to be found in my house because  I haven’t been outside for days (too busy). So, instead, my desk – which will explain why I haven’t been outside…

Talk about neat and tidy! This is the dining room table – where I have worked all week. The left hand box contains, bagged neatly, 100 bag front pieces, 100 linings and 100 straps – all cut out and parcelled up into packs of 10 for folk to sew together ready for taking to Uganda for the children. The right hand box contains all the cards I have made, neatly packed and priced, for the hotel. I go over to them this week and we set them up ready for opening next Monday. Wow!! Well over 100 cards in there now, and yes, I realise that as soon as I put them out at the hotel I will need to start again because the box will be empty!

I’ve also been cracking on with the blanket I showed you last week – and it now could act as a tablecloth – it has certainly grown!!

Still somewhat wavy down the edge – so I have hidden that untidy bit!!

Remember the dies I was having trouble with the other week? Well, I emailed Pink Frog and they got me to send them the dies and said they would try them out and see what was going on. They were brilliant. Within four days I had them back, tried, tested, and with all the samples of their testing sent back plus hints on where to put shims etc. So, Mrs D and I had a fun day playing…

Aren’t they simply stunning? So – a round of applause for Pink Frog, I think, for helping out folk like me so readily!!!

So that’s me folks. Neat and tidy, and all set to begin again! But first, a birthday card for my youngest grandie, and a card for my daughter’s Mother in law….

Take care, my friends. Thank you to so many who visited last week. I’m so sorry for the two or three I can’t leave messages for – especially when you are good enough to leave a comment on my post. I couldn’t find an email for you…. sorry… I would have sent my comment that way…

God bless.

    Hello there lovely gal – Happy St David’s Day to you too! I passed kids playing in the local school and all the little girls had their costumes on, it was lovely to see 🙂 You have been a busy bee this week, but all for a good cause huh? I see our Julia has gone public with the Crop dates. I really hope that some of the northern deskers come to this one! Hugs, LLJ 15 xxxx

    My goodness, Margaret, you have been busy. I love the blanket and those die cuts are brilliant – so intricate! When I started reading your post I was a bit worried because I thought the whole thing might be in Welsh… Thank you for your lovely comment. I am making slow progress but will get there in the end. My hubby continues to look after me very well. Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #29

    Happy WOYWW – and Happy St Davids Day. Yes, those dies are glorious. Glad you got the advice you needed to use them. You have been so busy and put me to shame. For 3 days now I keep saying to myself that I must pick some daffodils from the hedges on my way back from walking the dog – and again today I just walked straight past them! Will go out shortly whilst the sun is shining and there actually isn’t a gale blowing! Ali x #31

    Those cards are beautiful, so far I’ve only used one of the ones I cut from your dies and it has been posted without being snapped. Can you bring the blanket this afternoon, I’d like to see it. Chris

    Hi there Margaret – so glad you decided to adopt the crop. I just knew it was the perfect place and you were the perfect hostess. If you want any help shout! We will be at the Premier but not booked as yet. Hopefully will be down as soon as the weather is a bit kinder, remember I have that Alice Trail to do, and see you of course. Too long to wait until October besides which Llandudno is close enough for a one day trip for us. Sending lots of love to one busy busy lady by the look of it – well done on all your makes. Blessings, Neet 2 xxx
