Diet Watch suspended due to Feasting!!

This is the last diet watch in December as there will be too  much feasting going on to have any hope of reducing the weight but the good news is today my weight is 72 kilo.
Can't help but be awe struck that it has stayed the same this week as I've had a weekend away crafting with two fabulous craft mates Sue and Laura.
Not only did we have fun crafting but we took in Bath Christmas market on Friday night with the most glorious meal at Jamie's (Oliver) place.....3 courses....well it would be rude not to!
It was a scrummy meal...but I forgot my camera!!! What a dill weed!
...and what a contrast to that disaaaaaaaaster of a meal I had last Saturday!!! LOL
Then there was the wine of course...oh! Let's not forget the GG's (gin and ginger beer ;) ) and the mince pies and clotted cream whilst crafting on Saturday.....and the super meal Sue made for us....with pud!!!
Well you get my drift don't was such fun and we all did some canvas work on the brain was refusing to work and this was the only thing I could think to do to start with...'s texture paste applied free hand and through a T!m tree mask of grunge.....I had to leave it to dry for the rest of the day (and night!!) and now I like the minimal look so much I'm scared to add any colour to it in case I spoil it!!! HOL
Eventually it took me all day to finish this very, very small canvas....only 4 inches square!!!!
Just wait till you see what Sue and Laura post.....gorgeous. :)

But it made me very happy cutting the deer from cork....
(sticky backed from The Works if you are interested)
...and on Sunday we all made three of T!m's tags :) Laura and I had to drive home late afternoon we did not finish ours and will have to put the final touches to them at home...there was just too much drying time on a couple of them!!! ;)
Thanks for looking and thanks to Sue for being a fabulous host again and to both Sue and Laura for sharing a great weekend of fun, laughter and craft :)

  1. Sounds like you had a great time!! Love the canvas... can't wait to see your tags.

  2. I love the minimal look of your canvas too!!! Also love the second one, love the harliquin detail in the background and your fabulous cork reindeer! Hugs Juls

  3. That sounds like the bestest weekend ever. Wow! a Jamie O feast too. I would have to have worn tracky bottoms to that meal and would still be in them - Oh! I am LOL.
    Well done on your previous weight care, 'cos it's paying off now. Reckon next weekend will be just as bad eh????? wink, wink.
    Hugs Joanne xx

  4. Sounds like you all had a fab weekend! The textured tree looks brilliant, & I love your little canvas! Call me ignorant, but what's 'WUNSCH'? xx

  5. I am still glowing from the weekend. Did a bit more to my tags yesterday. Still drying pro as my attic is freezing now! Did a fantastic cheat on the day 5 one. Can't wait to share it with the world.
