Holiday Snapshots

Hello all my lovely readers,

well I am typing this blog post one handed due to a slightly extreme accident that happened on holiday, resulting in a hospital stay and a rather painful operation and a piece of large metal being inserted into my left wrist to hold all the little bones together.


It looks somewhat like a bottle opener, as one friend pointed out, and hubby thought of the witty retort that I'd wanted a cork screw but they got it wrong.

Sadly I never think of witty retorts in time. Do you?

But apart from that the holiday was wonderful, we went to Morocco and stayed in Agadir, a really interesting place, with lovely food and people and culture.

I took 2 of my little ladies with me and I thought I might show you some of the photos I took of them whilst there before disaster struck and I was left with only one working hand. Couldn't really manage many photos after. lol.


By the way, do not fret if you always wanted a Bees Knees Art Doll and now think you have missed your chance, as although unable to sew at the moment, this is not a permanent situation and my wrist will be back to its old self eventually, as long as I keep up my physiotherapy. And, in the meantime, I will be opening my Etsy shop again very soon, with a selection of dolls that have recently been on exhibit in the Core Collection's summer exhibition, in Solihull, UK. (once my pain killer mushy brain is more with it).

Next weekend is the Makers Medley's next challenge reveal, so keep an eye out for that, fortunately I had finished sewing that doll before I went on holiday.

bye for now.

Hugs and Kisses
Ally

Holiday Mode - yay

Good morning lovely people

Can I firstly say that something strange happened during writing last week's blog post and somehow I managed to publish way before I had finished. I un-published it but not before 6 people had seen it, presumably some of you lovely folks that have an automatic link. So as blogger probably wont then have told said lovely folks that the finished version was published, may I advise, if last week you got a very strange unfinished blog, then please go to the bottom of this blog post and there you will find it complete. Sorry for any inconvenience and thanks. Ally

Good morning world, hope you are all fab on this incredibly warm Monday morning. It's hot here in England, and we are just not really used to it.

Exciting new delivery today


Good morning you internet lovelies  


So the postman knocked on the door this morning and I crossed my fingers because I have been waiting for this particular parcel for a while now as it was being sent from China, and that can take a bit of time.
