WOYWW- here again!

I am back....not yet fully recovered, but at least able to face blogging and perhaps a little crafting again. For anyone remotely interested (I wouldn't be!) the pleurisy turned to pneumonia, so I am still rattling with antibiotics etc. On the plus side most of the pain has now gone.

Enough of that,
This is a gift that I made just before I took a turn for the worse. Jenny's flute teacher has taken herself and her other half off to some sunny climes to get married. So I made this for her to either take with her or to keep as a keepsake.

I have made one thing in the last week, for a sad reason. My nephew and his wife had some terrible news. Their much awaited baby had died, they found out at the 20 week scan. What can you say at times like these? I just wanted them to know we were thinking of them. I found a fantastic poem to go inside that said it all, so I kept the card simple.
I just want to say a big thank you to Chrissie, who you will all know from WOYWW. She came to see me last week and delivered to me the birthday bundle candy I was lucky enough to win from her blog. It was lovely to meet her face to face, we had only spoken once before on the phone. What a lovely lady she is!

Ok everyone head over to Julia's blog to check out the other WOYWW entries this week. Have fun....

Edited:- I have been asked to share the poem I used. I guess it is always hard to find the "right words". I found a site by searching online. There are some beautiful poems here that had me in tears just reading them through. The site is here and I used An Angel Never Dies....just tweeked it slightly to suit our situation. I site I hope you never need to use...but is worth bookmarking just in case.
