Time Please

I have just made this ATC for a chain swap and needed to make it for a man so hopefully he will like it, I have to own up to really enjoying making doll type cards, must be my second childhood rushing on, and have three more similiar to this one set up to make then on to some fabric work. Happy to be back into the swing of things anyway.

Feeling a bit more inspired today to start a new project as haven't really done a lot for the last couple of weeks so am going to have a crafty afternoon. The atc pictured here is a RAK from Wendy - still getting her £2s worth from the 40 avocado's and of course the Red Cross shop chicks.

A good evening!

Having been without the Web since Sunday night its reappearance tonight definitely cheered me up , how is it that after holding out against having a computer for years I now feel as tho' I am missing my left arm when it goes down, luckily I know I'm not the only one who feels that way, couldn't even get down to serious crafting. Like the title of the Sam Toft picture ( sent as an e card by Jan) today has certainly 'Turned out nice again" and feeling whole once more lets craft.

Just home from a couple of days rest and relaxation, staying in Hereford and spending yesterday in Wales with Wendy and Peter, they took us around the Elan Valley, the area is beautiful and altho' we saw parts of rivers and streams frozen the weather was lovely.Wendy and I stamped with each others Zetti Stamps then we had her famous Avocado soup ,but that's another story.The rest of the week is for clearing out my Aunt's Garage, think we have got our priorities back to front but never mind - there may be some 'found objects' to bring home.

Taking a break.

Slowing down craftwise at the moment as not being around much next week, looking forward to meeting up with Wendy on monday and having a go with some of her Zetti stamps and perhaps hearing about the best charity shops in Llandrindod Wells.Feel a bit at a loss just now but hopefully will get going again soon.

I have enjoyed greatly the second blooming that comes when you finish the life of emotions and of personal relations; and suddenly find - at the age of fifty say - that a whole new life has opened before you, filled with things you can think about, study or read about..... it is as if a fresh sap of ideas and thoughts was rising in you.

if no birds sang there except

those that sang best.

Fabric ATCs

What to do?

I've set up this blog today and now what?,who really wants to know what I'm doing day by day?,me perhaps because often in the dashing here and there you really forget what you were mean't to be doing anyway - like finding yourself at the fridge and wondering - Why??. Well it will slowly get off the ground I hope ,once I've sorted out what to click on and when.
