Good afternoon, and welcome to you all, and thank you for all your lovely comments on my card and gift cake.
Well I am not into work until I pick up Beth. I am beginning to feel the benifit of not doing the hours I was, I dont think it's going down to well with work, as my family keep saying they never saw what I did each day. But now they are. And they are having to do it themselves or the poor housekeeper has to do it. Me I am just glad I don't have to think or do it now. I am not sitting doing nothing that's for sure but I am not doing two jobs in a way. As you know I am making Andrew and Gillians invitations, so lots of cutting to do. Then I had a disaster on Saturday when I found out I had broken my striplet, I can still cut with it BUT it's very sharp and blood on those die cuts just can't happen. The heart striplet has little very fine thin bits at the edge and that's where it's I would say cracked rather than broken.
So this is all that I have been doing.
I have to cut 80 striplets and so far I have cut 18, the time consuming bit is cleaning the dies of the bits, and oh those little bits are every where!!! Thank goodness I have a good Hoover because between the bits and dog hairs at the moment it's needs to be.
It's a lovely day here, sun shining but it's not that warm, Charlie is back to nearly 100%, I do think he is right that getting out in the fresh air has helped? I am missing walking Harris, but I can get things done while the two of them are out of the hour in the morning. Most get back into doing a later walk once the days stay lighter, as I dont like walking just up the villiage. We have a few places that are round the edge of the villiage that are nice to walk in day light.
Any way off to cut a few more leaves, all out of the scrap bit, nothing wasted.
Now take care especially as the weather is meant to take a turn for worse mid week.
Myra if you have stopped in again, you said you were making a gift bag. Do you like myself have a bag die??? Or do you make it up by using a score board???
Will try and post a card, I have one to make for my friends husband who started his radiotherapy treatment today ready for his surgery next week. So will show that. I wil have to think of a man card design!
