a gift for Bez and Shaun snoozes on

Hello Lovelies - well all is well still with Shaun but we are still awaiting him waking - I know he took his time last time but I'm still hoping he'll wake before Christmas - watch this space!

Today I have a quick post to share with you - its a gift I made for Bez my mil - for Christmas - using the steampunk cockerel from Chocolate baroque - I hope she likes it:


Here's a close up:


I'm pleased with it anyway - simple but she loves the image so I think it will work!


Here's a picture from Friday night - it was the Hornby ladies christmas dinner - 60 ladies meet in one of the village pubs for a lovely meal - it was great to catch up with them! 

Big Hugs and a Happy Christmas to you!

  3. Rachel, you put me to shame. You are under so much worry at the moment, yet you still fine time to do things, like stamping and framing this beautiful image for your MIL. Had to laugh at your comment on my blog ref. your hair colouring moment. Take care and I am praying that you will get that special Christmas gift of Shaun waking up. Keep talking to him and reading to him. Hazel xx

    It's so good to hear the Shaun is still stable, I do hope he wakes in time to give you the best possible Christmas gift, he might make you wait for the New Year though and that would be special as well.
