Before I ago I want to apologise to all my Blog followers and  explain why I've not been around much these last three month I have had two cataract operations one in November and  the second one last week It really slowed down my crafting and  my ability to spend a long time on my iPad and  Laptop I was painting and crafting in small bursts .It has all been worth it as my sight is so much better get my last optician assessment in mid February so hoping to get new reading glasses and the go ahead to drive again I have not driven my car since last July its spent most of the time on trickle charge . I am gradually doing more on the laptop and iPad so hope to start comments again soon as i have missed all your amazing work and I still love to Blog over Facebook 

I hope everyone is keeping well Please all stay safe and keep crafting. ..
 Sending Love and  hugs to you all Carole x


  1. Oh Carole this is adorable. That image is just so sweet. Have a good weekend. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  2. Carole, your colouring of this pretty image is stunning. The detail on her hat is amazing. Pleased to hear that your eyes are better after the treatment. I was told last November, when I went for an eye test, that I will need to go to have another test, as I also have cataract problems and do have a bit of blur in the edge of one eye. Oh the joys of getting old!!Lol!!
    Stay safe and well, hugs, Carol
