Recipe RR

It is a while since I posted. Time seems to have run away. I am taking part in a Recipe round robin and this is my "Recipe Card Book". As always I seem to rush around in the last moment doing things which should have been done yesterday! But I did finish making the book and it is on its way on time phew! The reason it took me so long was I had no inspiration and my dolly kept calling me. I looked at various journals but nothing. I wanted mine to be as light as possible so the postage would be kept to a minimum at the same time something nice. So this is what I came up with. My nieces presented me a free voucher for a day at the Spa. This voucher was in a pretty folder. I looked at it and thought this folder would do the trick. So I sort of stuck things on it to hide the writing etc as you can see. I am not very good at this sort of thing so it is not great it is a bit too flowery but it will do. The main thing is I am looking forward to all the delicious recipes.
This is how my dolly is taking shape I have done a bit more since I took this picture and the battery has run out so the next picture will probably be when she is finished.

  17. I was sorry to read your post about having the flu. I hope you feel better real soon. I would have e-mailed you but figured you didn't need more e-mail to read while you feel so bad.
    Get well soon, my friend!
