Devon Gremlins

Not been a very good week, what with the weather and an attack of the Gremlins.
First the television decided to die or so we thought and went out and bought a new digital one, which we will need soon, but that wouldn,t work as needs a booster or a new ariel! luckily the old tv is now working at least until we can sort out an ariel or booster!
Then my computer was hijacked, went away to be sorted, luckily all my files were saved, as it then decided to die. so now waiting for a new all singing all dancing lap top , to save on space. so all in all it has been an expensive week.
The Good News is
My daughter is finally on the mend, she has gone a whole week without being ill.
So Thanks to you all for your prayers and good wishes.
will catch up with you all soon

one step forward and a dozen back

Good news and not so good,

start with the not so good, My daughter has to go back into hospital, for more treatment that will probably kill off her immune system as well as the problem, so its back to the beginning again and more worrying!!. thanks to everyone who has left lovely messages.

The good news for this week is i sold 2 paintings on the preview evening, That's a First for me, Sales are a bit slow this year, but we have had some lovely comments from people popping in.

I forgot to say in the last post the red ATC flew off to Wendy in Canada. While i recieved a lovely one from Satu in Finland, I have forgotten to Photograph OOps.

I also received a lovely pink cuff from Anne Styles on the Yahoo Embellisher swap group. and a Georgeous pincushion from Tricia, on the Yahoo Embellisher challenge group.
Photos of Pin cushion , cuff and the 2 paintings that sold on Sunday.
