Where am I?

I have to apologise to all the folks arriving here for the updates on the monthly makes.  We have had a bit of family drama and I needed to be there for the family, so have asked Kandipandi to help me out. I am sorry to have bowed out at this point but it couldn't be helped. Things are improving slowly so normal blogging will resume in due course, I hope.  In the meantime, do visit the group to see what each other have been up to for the remainder of October, and try to keep warm folks.

First Weekly Roundup of October Monthly Makes

In case you missed my last post, I am the guest caretaker for the October monthly make challenge over on flickr. We are up to 19 group members at the moment but there is always room for some more. The more the merrier.  We can be found right here.

So here is a round up of the lovely makes by our members this week.
