'Friends'

Hi everyone my post has a few photo's today...one of my neighbours had been having a hard time lately so I decided to make this book to cheer her up...and I actually moved her to tears which wasn't my intention but she said it was because no one had made her anything as beautiful before...which for my first attempt at this I wouldn't go that far LOL but it's relaxing and I thoroughly enjoyed it and when I get a bit more time I intend to make some more ...so here is my first ever word book:)))





Hope everyone has a fabulous bank holiday weekend  and I'm off to visit as many blogs as I can before bedtime. Hugglessssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I think it's pretty splendid looking, and for a 1st effort, well, BIG WOW! Love the lacey look, so feminine & pretty. I can see why your friend was so appreciative. It was so kind of you to cheer her with this beautiful creation. The lace is gorgeous, and liked the flower details on the spine of your pretty book. Well done, Miss Sue. Can't wait to see your next effort. TFS & Happy Sunday. Hope that all is going well at your house. Hugs

Oh my word Sue, this is gorgeous!! I've never seen anything like this and I'm amazed at how you got your word in the book like that, how on earth is it done?!!! I think your first efforts are amazingly great! I can see why your sweet neighbor was moved to tears, I think I would have been too. Great job Sue and how wonderful that you did this kind deed for you neighbor. You are such a blessing. Hugs, Brenda
