Well I'm running late today, It is this 'trying to stop hubby doing too much when he is convalescing' that has delayed me. Today it involved mowing the lawn as he was mithering about it. Actually 'lawn' is a very superior name for a patch of grass that is less than 2 square yards. However while a neighbour has been manfully mowing the grass in the orchard while we have been away, and once since we got back, the 'lawn' has escaped his notice, being the other side of the house and it was at least 8" high. So I had to go out there with the strimmer, was told off for plugging it in in the wrong place, told off for getting grass in the pond, told off for stopping because my hand hurt and then he took it off me and said 'Actually I can do that without any problems' and did the last square foot on his own. Don't quite know why I bothered.
I have a couple of pictures to show you, the first is of an orchid that Margaret gave us some time ago. It started flowering for the second time just before we went away and we thought that we would miss it as we didn't know how long we were going to be down at the hospital, but it just goes on and on producing more flowers. Isn't God's creation wonderful? I doesn't normally live on the floor in front of a kitchen cupboard but I was struggling to find a place where I could get the right light for a good picture of it.
I had problems also with light for my worktop this morning so I am afraid the first one is very arranged to give you the best images and the second one is from the other direction showing the clutter that was 'right swept' to make room for the cards to be displayed.
The blue card at the back is a wedding anniversary card for my sister in Holland, the other two are just playing pieces with new dies I bought. The white piece at the front is the card from which I cut the flourish that is on the greeny card on the right. I was going to throw it but felt that that was a bit of a shame, so I may use it to make a card in black and white or crimson and white. Watch this space but don't hold your breath, it may take me several weeks to get there.
Actually it may take a while anyway because we are off to my sister in Hereford for a bit of convalescence for the man so I will be absent from my worktop for at least one week and maybe two. I will try to drop in to visit friends on WOYWW before I get back but probably won't be posting.
It has been suggested that I take some card making stuff to Susie's but that always leaves me struggling to decide what to take and what not to take so I might have a complete break from card making for two weeks when I will be desperate to create lots.
I will take some crochet and lots of books so will have plenty to occupy my time.
