over on Dillybeans this week, the prompt is Have the Blues. I didn't want to go down the BLUE route so I decided to use lyrics to convey the 'blueness' I did add a few blue hearts of course. I'm also entering this into one stitch at a time challenge for 'anything goes'
Yesterday, I managed to go out for a few hours, I did go to the local shop the other day but didn't feel great but I ventured into town with Lily and met up with Amber, we did a bit of thrifting. and... I've been after a small tapestry since before christmas and I thought I would treat myself to one. Can't wait to start it.
love these colours
Little A has been having a bake-off this week or so it seems, first she made these lovely gingerbread biscuits and then some lemon biscuits. Yummy... this is the book she used. no pix of the lemon bickies as they were gobbled up before the light of day. Here's my babies.... still going stir crazy.... next week I'm going to start walking them again regular, just round the block to begin with.
Gomez wondering what's it all about.... or just being plain nosy!
This week on TOFF... the theme is Somewhere Over the Rainbow... and here is my hanging piece. I'm also entering this for the whimsical wednesday's prompt of 'anything goes!' and the crafty purple frog also have the theme of anything goes.
good news ~ my stitches have been removed... bad news ~ i have an infection in the wound site so I STILL have to rest so I'm spending the afternoon with Doris Day and Calamity Jane. This was always my fave musical when I was a child. On DillyBeans Challenge this week the theme is FROSTY... this guy is definitely having a bad hair day! background is handmade with spritzers and masks. Have a fun Saturday!
in my life.... I have to give a grand shout out to Anne, one of my two best friends, who came to visit me this past weekend, although she did make me work my butt off on some atcs! All my friends from Katz & co have been caring and kind... just had a phone call from Sue offering to take me out of the house for an hour or go do shopping. All my internet friends are super dooper kind asking me if I'm ok. I'm so glad I have friends.
Another day of colouring, today with tea and profiteroles for lunch, yummy but sickly I must say! lol. I just wish I could DO something, first time I've been at home for any length of time for over a year and I can do NOTHING, it's actually driving me a bit crackers but the stitches come out on Friday! yay... still another week of rest following that though. I'm running out of True Blood to watch!Poor dogs are getting fed up too, I can't even pick them up.
Myrtle, the defender of the pencils. oh look I've got spotty pj's on! lol
Lastly, I learnt a new word this weekend... spice apparently it means 'sweets' oop north. lol
This week's TOFF challenge is GLITTER. I've used Lily's Queen of Hearts image on a giant playing card that Amy sent to me. Unfortunately, scanning doesn't pick up glitter so well. here is my piece for TOFF TFL
for my two beautiful daughters. We went out for a meal together on Thursday, last meal of the condemned woman! lol Surgery went well, I'm getting more mobile now and can sit at the computer for short bits of time. These are some of the flowers the girlies got me. TFL
Wanted to wish all my friends online a very HAPPY new Year.
I've been in hospital having an operation and this is the first chance I've had of going online. I know a few of you have emailed me about Sunday Postcard Art... I will get back to you asap. Thanks for all my new years wishes and I will be back online shortly, as soon as I can sit up long enough to make something!
