Good morning.....

I am here to join in with Annie,s Friday  smiles, I have had a very busy week what with working 3  mornings and then catering for a buffet for 10 on Sunday.
My grandson took his long time girl-friend to the Lakes and proposed to her! Luckly, she said yes.......so I was shopping, cooking and baking for two long days lol, then it all had to be transported to their house on Sunday afternoon.
As if that was not enough to do, I made them a card
Then I decided to make some bunting, I used fat quarters that I bought in Aldi a few months ago, lovely cotton and 5 fat quaters for only £3.99p look out for these offers next time around, well worth the money and nice to work with. I could not have had a longer word with time so short.....34 triangles, home made binding,letters cut on Cricut, drawn on to fabric, cut out and sewn on to bunting!!
I only finished sewing at 12.30pm then put together the trifles, cooked the salmon, boiled the eggs and got everything in the car by 2.15pm.
Here is Ryan and Amy and my bunting.....
Beginning to put the food out, I did not get around to more pictures when people began to arrive.
Lots of smiles for me this week.

Hugs Tilly x
