What a Pear! Oldie for Friday!

Good Morning Friends and Visitors and welcome to my  Cuilliesocks Blog. If there is anyone out there who wonders about the name of my blog, it is named after my darling cat who died almost four years ago, whose name was Cuillin after the mountain range in Skye and my love of knitting socks. He was always beside me when I was trying on the socks and had to have a great inspection of them.  I get asked from time to time the origin of the name.

So we have a bit of watery sun this morning, but the washing is going out in the hope that the rain stays off. Imagine May already, where has the months gone, scary what what!!
Thank you so much for the lovely comments on my last card, I love reading them and always feel encouraged by them.

My hubby came back exhausted from is visit with is brother, has settled him in and he is getting on fine and walking well with his new hip. He also had a heart to heart with Jim's daughter about her dad needing more support from her, so I hope she takes it on board.  He has cleaned and shopped, contacted various support orgs. and and the council housing dept. about a ground floor flat/house.  Two brothers couldn't be more different, Jim doesn't know how to do these things without getting people's backs up, Alistair is more assertively diplomatic.  So, I think he deserves his weekend away with the buddies.

Well, it's time for another "Oldie for Friday", and mind you I'm running out of them, but I found this;
As you can see it's for an Anniversary, the image and sentiment really tickled me at the time. I think I got the image from the Internet, and I've matted and layered with Hunkydory card and gold mirri.

This bit of fun was started by Erika of Snappycrafts and you can find her blog here, to show earlier crafty makes, it can be anything handmade. It's good to look back at what was created in our earlier crafting careers and how we have improved, progressed, it's just fun so why not join Erika and the rest of us in sharing your "Oldies"

That's the next batch of washing finished so I'm away to get it hung out and the scare away the huge black cloud that's hovering over the house.
Have a super weekend whatever you do and I'll see you soon, I've got a bit of catching up with some of you, take care of your selves.

Hope the rain stays off for you. We have sunshine here at the moment - but, as you know, that can change any minute now. Love your card - the pears are fun and I like the sentiment too. We're off to see Scotland's Tapestry this morning - it's on display in Ayr Town Hall at last - I've been keen to see it ever since it was on TV news last year :) Elizabeth xx

Hey Kate! I don't think I will ever get caught up with my blog watching and commenting. Nice card Sugar. I don't have any old cards - they seem to find a new home right after I make them!
We are still unpacking and trying to get settled. Bit by bit it will get done!
