MIM#159 A Stitch In Time with Rick St. Dennis

Well the weekend has finished and a new day has begun. Yesterday I went off to church in the morning with my hubby and they had a church luncheon to raise money for a mission hospital in India that they have been sponsoring for about 12 years. We came back home, hubby went off and bought a trailer and I went shopping for some food to take up to our son's for a barbeque. Adrian left before me so he could mow the lawn before we got there and I boiled up some eggs to curry, made a salad and cheese platter, threw in a yeast bun. I grabbed the two dogs and headed out as well. We had an enjoyable night with all the family and I offered to bring our youngest grandson home with us for the night as he is normally here Mondays anyway and will save my DIL some time getting organised in the morning.
It's time for a new linky party to begin at Make It Monday .    We had so many wonderful entries last week and are hoping for lots more this week. I hope you are managing to get to some of the other blogs and check out the wonderful creations!
Congratulations go to Kerry as our featured artist and to Kit as the winning commenter. This week we are being sponsored by the very creative Rick St Dennis and I chose this delightful digi called A Stitch In Time to work with. I hope you like what I did with it.

Here it is........
