Good morning bloggers. Hope you are all well?
Thank you for your lovely birthday wishes. The day passed uneventfully, thankfully but I didn't have a great night following and so very tired typing this. You can't win em all eh?
Had some fab cards and pressies and Lewis Hamilton didn't make the podium so it was a good day.
Now today, we have the clock I made for baby Luca (it doesn't have a line across the top, its the reflection on the glass). Some of you have mentioned looking forward to the clock tutorial but they really were as straightforward as I detailed on Lilia's post here, so I'm not quite sure what other detail I can add. If there is something that isn't clear or that I've missed in the explanation, please let me know so that next time I make one, I can perhaps add more detail or photos to help. However, I have now bought this gadget from The Works for £2 to cut the large circle next time so I don't have to use a pair of compasses and hand cut it. It cuts circles up to 30cm (about 12 inches).
Hope it works.

This is the clock before I re-attached the frame.

A couple of garden photos to tease June and Maureen . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
And this is a huddle of baby garden spiders nesting on my washing line. These things are literally each about the size of a pin head and scatter when you touch the web.
Weird little critters.
A final snap, this time of the birthday cake Mr D bought for me. My favourite biscuits are Custard Creams so when he saw this, he thought it would be apt.
Hope you all have a good week.
