Boy am I tired today or I'm I tired!! mind you I've done a lot around the house and helped Alistair clean the car, and got some crafting done too. I thought that once I'd given up work I would have heaps more energy, but that doesn't seem to be the case, mind you I am wakened and up very early, earlier than I would be when I was at work. I feel that I just don't want to waste any of the day. However, I'm dozing off just after dinner, getting older I guess.
Thank you all for the super comments on my last card, you are very kind, but keep them coming as it is so helpful to have the encouragement.
Something a wee bit different today, a bit photo heavy so please forgive;
I started to make this project when I was last at the Birmingham Show last year, Patricia and Hazel you might remember them, well I have just got around to finishing it today. It's for my Friend Dale's Daughter Amanda and I know she loves things like this. I always like to take something handmade when I visit, so I thought this would be perfect, and I chose the sentimet because she is just such a lovely young woman, and if I had been lucky to have a daughter, I would have loved to have her.
And here is what I've made for Dale;
Dale sews and is a Quilter, and I usaully take down some Fat Quarters for her, this time I've included a altered coffee jar with a design on it( too nice to chuck out) and filled it with sewing bits and bobs.
I've decorated it with a new sewing themed die set from First Editions and put a large Prima flower on the lid.
We are off down to visit them soon and to go to the Edinburgh Jazz Festivel and really looking forward to it.
Well folks that's me for today, Alistair, bless him has decided to make dinner as he had a look in the kitchen and saw nothing going on, it's just baked potatoes and bits tonight, so easy peasy. That's another thing.... I've been burning everything I've been cooking, don't know what's going on there. I'm really lucky having a hubby who never complains about the meals I serve up, good job!! if the last few dinners are anything to go by.
Cheero for now,
