Mum has been in and out of hospital, back in at the moment - I spent Easter weekend in Somerset visiting her. In fact since I took her home after Christmas I have only seen her in hospital. I also had flu in February. Sometimes I have spent ages on telephone re mum and been too tired to blog, or knew I wouldn't be able to visit other people. So in brief that's why I've been missing. There have been some enjoyable times as well.
Any way here is my desk/work space - I am now trying to prepare for a Friday evening/ all day Saturday class in May. Had hoped to go away for the weekend for a Craft Retreat but in the end it didn't work out ( not given up on the idea altogether) so one of the ladies that comes to classes, who is a dear friend and does all catering for me said she would host the event at her home. So plan is to meet Friday evening, drinks and nibbles - a little Make and Take Project, a game and then supper. On the Saturday we will meet for breakfast, craft, light lunch, craft some more and then dinner on the evening. Well that's the plan :-)
So today I started planning so that's what is on my desk!
Planning on using Stampin Up Succulents stamps, thinlits and design paper. Unfortunately they are now on the retiring list but as I had already purchased everything I cannot change the theme.
Above the beginnings of some of the makes. Sorry the photos are not brilliant.
Below are the makes from my April class - based on/ inspired by ideas from Pinterest. Cannot remember where from but the top right hand corner is from Amanda Bates - The Craft Spa- she makes some gorgeous projects.
Above - mum in hospital time before last. She has a compression fracture of her spine. She spent four weeks in hospital, came out - fell in the kitchen and as I said back in now :-(
Below is little sausage ( Mum's great grandson - well one of them :-) - he has had more time in hospital. He has had the feeding tube for a long time now. He was quite poorly and kept pulling it out. It looks as though he will be going to Great Ormond Street to have a PEG fitted. They have also said he may have have suffered some damage because of the feeding tube, other than that he seems to be doing well.
