I'm so lucky...


Remember the Dotee doll that Sue made and sent me, well it's not the first homemade item I have received from friends on the do-crafts forum, both Steven and I have had some lovely cards over the years, (thank you Susan, to view some of her cards, check out her blog on the left 'ramblings of a housewife') and a lovely little book from Gina, she sent me this a few months back, when I needed cheering up, it's absolutely fab, I just love showing it off.


This is it closed



and this is it opened...



It's called a Squash Book


Again like the dotee doll, it's a thing I would love to try, but not sure I'll have the patience. It was a lovely surprise, thank you Gina, it takes pride of place on my dresser in my lounge, along with my dotee doll. Which is right next to the chair that I live in while on my laptop, lol

Aw what a lovely book, and a lovely thought Gina! I think we are all very lucky that we have found each other through our crafts - I know that I dont know how I would have coped in recent times without wonderful friends like you pair, and we do have such a laugh dont we!
Hugs, Sue xxx

Totally true Sue, it's surprising how having cyber friends can get you through the most difficult times x

That's lovely, I might have to have a go at making one of those (just need another three hours in a day!)

Thanks Susan, Gina done a brilliant job, think I would need more than 3 hours to make one, lol
