Both me and hubby have been ill in the past week. I have started the process of realising one of my lifelong dreams - to have a donkey for driving - went to see some last Tuesday up on a Welsh mountain, and it wasn't fun having the start of a nasty 'bug' whilst having to drive 75 miles each way and then walk up steep slopes to view the 'herds'. Those donkeys were too expensive for me, but got a lovely fully-trained one to see next week hopefully (if I am able to cope with the journey upto Cheshire).
I have done a fair bit of crafting (there was only one day when I was too ill to even lift a piece of paper!) - I have lots of birthdays in the coming month, plus of course the threat of Xmas is very much upon us. I was intending to start yesterday and make at least one card per day, but then I spent all morning making a box to put my stepdaughters New Home card in (it was a fancy step design and wouldn't fit in an envie) and we went out in the afternoon to 'nearly' finalise the purchase of our new car (a Mercedes Benz A Class). Going back on Friday to make the final choices of colour/interior, and then it should be with us in early December.
Happy WOYWW to everyone I do not manage to visit.
Three very gorgeous fabrics. I was meant to be going on a Beginner
Sewing Machine course last weekend, but my health got in
the way yet again. I bought these fabrics to make a bag and apron with, but
now they sit next to my sewing machine waiting for me to play with them.
The selection of designs cut out on my Silhouette Cameo are
increasing by the day (I also have a folder with some in - they
are given away regularly to people who make cards for charity, if
I haven't used them first). I tend to fill the sheet of card/paper,
rather than then have scraps left over. I haven't used the print
function very often, but have 2 on the pile - including the cute
snowmen (will make a fab quick card).
