And everyone is fine and the car is fine too, it just sucks a bit and was a pretty craptastic start to a less than stellar day.
But you know, every cloud has a chubby hippo and all that.
Well, co-hosting ( with Gillian) a bit of hijinkery the day before returning to work tuned out to be the best idea ever ! Forty-nine crafters came along and joined in. We had mini- workshops, yummy food and oodles of door prizes. Much better than sitting at home getting my knickers in a twist.

It is all hand sewn and just about as quick and simple as a project is possible to be
You know it's been donkeys years since I've made a little blog freebie and this one is completely downloadable through googledocs. Just pop on over to Favecrafts and get the link.
In other news, I know people are waiting for particular patterns to be PDF'd and aded to the shop, just let me get over the shock of the return-to-work on Monday, get the computer back to its normal self...and I'll be on it.
