Hello I am Back

Good Evening to all my dear crafty friends and followers

Yes I am back raring to get some crafting done I have loads of ideas and so glad that I took my sketch pad with me to jot down my ideas.  I hope you are all well and not missed me too much?

I would love to say thank you so very much for visiting my blog whilst I was on holiday and leaving some fabulous comments.  I read each and everyone and last night I spent visiting a lot of blogs leaving comments too.

Today my best friend Lesley came and took me out to buy my birthday present which is on Monday and we had a lovely day out.  We arrived back to ours and had a cold drink totally shattered and spent up too.  Got some lovely clothes off Lesley and I treated myself too, Next had a sale on so it would have been rude not to go and see what there is.

Here are a few photographs from our holiday in Turgetreis in Turkey.  We stayed at Kadikale Spa resort and what a fabulous holiday we had.  The weather was lovely and hot blue skies, lovely beaches and lots to eat and drink.  Unfortunately I put on some weight but I will be on a diet again after my Birthday on Monday.

This is a view of the resort from the sea

This is our room

This is the boat we went on to tour around the islands, we went to the Wishing Cave, Camel Beach, and Green Aquarium.  It was a fabulous day out and we had lunch on board and relaxed too.

It was great to swim in the sea Rick took this picture of me while I was in the sea, it was cold but so refreshing too.

This is our last night and our Waiter Tarik took a photo of Rick and I.

One day we went into Turgetreis and I found a Habedashery Shop, oh boy was I in seventh heaven.  I spent a fortune and the next 2 photographs are what I bought.

I bought an assortment of ruffled ribbon, lace and I bought foam roses 100 for £12.50 they are absolutely gorgeous.

This photo shows lace with ribbon threaded through to match the lace.  I also bought beads on a role which you can either glue on or stitch and an assortment of buttons.

Thank you so much for visiting today
Hugs xxxxx

Gorgeous photos Linda. Was never sure about Turkey, but I've not heard a bad word about it from anyone who's been there... one day I might be able to go!

Did ALL of your stuff come to £12.50 - or the foam roses - hopefully it was all of it - in which case, a real bargain! Not if it was only the foam roses though! lol.

Glad you had a lovely time anyway. xx
