Monday morning and piles

Good morning and another new week begins. After a lengthy recovery period I am returning to work this week, not until Thursday but back to work I go. It will do me good to get back into a routine and there really is only so much daytime tv that you can watch, really.

I had lots and lots of lovely visitors last week and everyone commented on my second pretty table cloth so I thought I would share a photo of it with you. It looks crumpled but it wasnt??? For those that dont know, it took me months and months to find two pretty table cloths but I did find them, in the end
A bit of a close up of one of the butterflies. It is quite interesting to note that crafters pull the wings of the butterfly up, so that they stand up. Non crafters press the butterfly down, to make it flat......

Yesterday morning I went through my piles. Yes I am a pile person, in the study I have two piles, things to do and things to file and everyday they get taller and taller. In the kitchen I have a pile on my worktop, this pile is underneath a book of things to do. My craftroom is full of neat little piles and to be honest, they are all the same things, either to file or to do so I set to, and got rid of them. Paul has been commenting on my piles for ages and you know what, he didnt notice that they had gone, thats men for you.

Here is a card I made using the Everything Eleanor Stamp set and the Stampin Up In Colours, I really like this card, so simple to make and it only uses up a few of the stamps in this stamp set
I have had plenty of time to go round blogs and I have seen some wonderful cards and have CASED quite a few.
Thanks for having a read on this extremely cold morning and I hope you stay warm today.

Good morning Tracey, good to know you can go back to work. Are you going on a phased return? Don't run before you can walk!
Very pretty cloth and a lovely card :o)
