Hello Lissy

I like your front door....ok I know thats a bit strange but I love to take photos of doors.....all sorts no preference just what catches my eye.

Lucky you receiving all those goodies Christmas in the summer :-)
Many thanks for your advice about the sewing machine

one of my legs is longer than the other- as a child they wanted me to wear hideous shoes with a wedge stuck to the bottom- even at 9 years old i knew i wasnt going to wear them. luckily even after my hip ops i didnt have any problems walking...ive never felt it a problem. lovely swapsie goodies- pretty parcels, i dont take part any more i was finding it way too expensive.
but i must do a giveaway soon as ive reached 500 followers.

love your childrens drawings- precious x
