Bits 'n Pieces

Hi everybody.  First of all I want to apologise to Pam who I welcomed in a previous post as Pat - sorry Pam - a senior moment and I want to welcome Rita - and I definitely got that right.  Rita is new to blogland and although she has signed up she has not yet posted any of her lovely cards.  We all know how difficult it is to make the first post - so Rita - come on  there is a whole network of friendly crafters who are ready to say Hi.

I have been working away on little cards and gift boxes.  I have been asked to do a display at a woman's group in November and I wanted to build up quite a few bits 'n pieces.  The little boxes are an idea for the times when you need some small gift to say Thank You or Get Well etc.  They are big enough for 4 scented tea lights or a nice bar of soap or some bath pearls - that sort of thing.  

Hope that none of you have suffered from the flooding.

Marie-Louise
