Weekend again

 Morning ..

                           Thank you for your comments I love to read them all, 

How does that saying got " The best laid  plans on mouse and men" I think I might give up planning things as really they always seem to go astray lol. I was going to post yesterday but again life got in the way yet again. 

I went to a craft club on Friday and we meet once a month it a little church hall not far from here. This month we were painting pebbles and it took me back to when I was a child. we also painted clay plant pots and made a pebble look like a cactus it was fun. This is what I made.
