All there is, is green to be seen

Thank you so much for your advice and experience when it comes to uploading photos on blogger.  I was really surprised to find out that I had exceeded my upload limit. I ended up deleting some  photos in my Picasa folder and have hopefully worked out how to upload in a smaller file. If I end up with another message from blogger I think I'll just buy storage so I'll see how I go.  Thank you again, now back to more exciting things like craft.

I'll be swimming in this sea of sparkly green for a few days I expect.  I put my hand up to help with costumes for the up coming presentation night for Miss 8 and my offer was kindly accepted, I now have 10 little martian skirts to sew.  So I got to it straight away and have done all of the sewing by machine now it's time to start hand sewing. I bet you are all green with envy aren't you;) he he. Ahh the fun of Christmas concerts, it will be worth the work when I see them all sparkling up on stage knowing I had a little hand in it.
And here's an update on my ornament for the Handmade Ornament Swap, just a little bit to go and then it's off to the post.

I had better get to it now and finish off these skirts for Friday, wish me luck.
