I know that we all say this but I really can't believe it's been a week since I was last doing this. Where has January gone? I am later than ever joining in, in fact wasn't going to cos had a lot to do but was so tired needed to sit down and decided to go for it!!! If you don't know what I am going on about then pop over to
stamping-ground.blogspot.com home of the lovely Julia's blog - she started it all !!!! Beware though it's highly addictive.
Well I will show you my desk first in case you don't have much time and I know Julia doesn't like it if we go on too long. Rest of my news afterwards if you make it.
This was Tuesday evening after finishing three cards I had to make this week. I didn't change anything until today.
See the big pink tape thingy - forgotten it's proper name. Well it is Julia's fault I bought it!! Honest!! On one of her posts she said they were in the sale at ***** forget now so I just had to buy it. Am still practising. Sometimes it's perfect - others - well not sure what I'm doing. In the pinl box to right are my liquid pearls - stickles to the left above.
Not a very good photo but a card for a lady on a forum I am on - she doesn't usually look on here.
Below a get well for a lady at knitting group who fell and broke her wrist - before the snow but it was icy. She is 84 and says she is really fed up at having to stop in. She is involved in so many activities.
Ah what is this ? Mr Ups left it whilst I was at the hospital. What can it be?
Well i've been a naughty girl and placed a rather large order with Stampin'Up! Some of it for a class I am doing ( though found out today there will now only be three attending - but that's another story) something my DIL ordered - well I confess only one item :-) and there were a few freebies.
Oh yes there is more !!!!
Have spent a lot of today getting ready for tomorrow's class. A question for anyone who might run classes how much prep do you do and how much of a free rein do you give people?
As I said I went for a check up at hospital on Tuesday. I had a small op back on 8th August and have just had check up and that was after contacting the hospital twice. Anyway have to have another small op, when I can get appointment. Should be this year, that means I had one in 2011, 2012 and now 2013 - going for a hat trick.
Have managed to start sewing up my blanket and also made a crochet flower this week . So quite productive.
