You must have a blog on which to post your work on the day the challenge starts.

 Good Afternoon readers,
Hope you are all having a good day so far....... weather here in Cornwall, is a sunny one, although a bit on the chilly side out of the sun...... well both myself and hubby, had a restless night last night, the boy's could not settle ( Boys being my Two Black Labs) they were quite restless, especially Chumleigh, not used to them being so calm, usually they are charging around the house..... rang the vet's up this morning and had to go and pick up some pain killers for them....... so hopefully that will help, so I am housebound, at the moment as they are not allowed to go out for to long, 10 mins max, so hubby went up to sort my horse out this morning...... which left me to do some crafting, so I joined in with the fun over on craftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge. and my entry is below......I usually scan my pictures, this is the first time I have used my camera......
