Sorry for not being around for the last few months!

How did it get to be the third week of July?  I can only apologize to you all I've had to put crafting onto the back burner for the last few months.  I've been dealing with some health issues and I've found out that I am also premenopausal so as anyone who's gone through the menopausal will know its not a fun time, it hasn't helped that I've been going to the doctors for over a years saying I think I am starting the menopausal to be told I'm too young.   

Steve has also had a bad few weeks as both his uncles are very ill after fighting cancer for the last few years.  Unfortunately Albert lost his fight last week and we had the funeral on Monday.  The sad thing is that we also know that Pete doesn't have long left either.  As you can expect Steve's mum isn't dealing with this very well to have lost one brother already and to know that the second one won't be around much longer is so hard for her.

On the brighter side its time for our next Craft Fayre tomorrow. I am in the process of making some extra items to sell, one thing I'm going to try this time is canvas bags. I've designed panels to go on the front in CraftArtist 2, I'm going to print them out onto canvas paper then glue them onto the front of the bag.  I have used T-shirt transfer paper before but I wanted a different look this time and the canvas paper I've got is very flexible.  Photo's will follow soon...
