Wasn't it lovely and sunny yesterday.
Been up in the cabin today (it's been raining and misty) cuttin fabric to make a bag and a quilt. Got the sewing bug after my friend Maureen popped round on Friday to cut out her bag.
Trouble is I have tons of other stuff to do first!
Best go and get Mr L some dinner..............
Thanks for stopping by.

Milla phoned me today and I asked her to tell me all about it - it went something like this:
We flew to Thailand and the airport at Cinimethingywhatsit (that's my word!) was outside. There were fountains and rivers and it was beautiful. Sarah (mummy's friend) picked us up and we went to a huge swimming pool and went for a swim. We then went to Sarah's house - it's a big black and white house. We unpacked and then went for another swim - it's hot there!! I am now thinking this is going to go on for a flippin' long time so I said "then you had a fabulous two weeks holiday" and she said "yes". Then I got it chapter and verse about the journey home. There were some bits where mummy was crying when we got to dubai cos the planes weren't flying because of the volcanic ash (!), Emerites put us up for one night so we found this penthouse suite of a posh hotel, there were five bathrooms, dining room, lounge, kitchen, bedrooms (Burn can't remember how many she said!), we had to pay for the other days ourselves! We flew to Vienna, then flew to Paris and went to the Eiffel tower, went to Calais, went to Dover and granddad took us to Brighton...........
Well I am now gasping for breath!!!!
I hope I haven't bored you to pieces but just had to share this with you.
She is coming over next weekend so I expect I will get it all again!!!
Ron has finished the decking so I will post some pics tomorrow.
Wonder where Dave will be going for his run. Mind you he went to Wivelsfield Green this afternoon to see my friend, Kim. Perhaps he should stay home and have a little rest tomorrow, then I can may my bag - it's fabby!!!
Laters and thanks for stopping by

Thanks for listening and popping by....

The inside of the lid has her name, Susan (honest!) and the bottom of the box has the date of Susan's graduation (honest!). I toyed with several ways to do it and ended up with rub-ons! Oh and the stamp is a Tim Holtz one. The one on the lid is bigger than the one inside the box..... The grunge rose is coloured with Barn Door distress inks and the "card" is barn door and black soot and antique linen. The edging on the lid is viva precious metal paint and the other gold edging is a gold paint pen thingy. Are you all suitably bored now? Well sorry about that but there is more................
I also made this altered CD for her cousin's little girl - Lizzie.

Ron knows his place........... This is a pic of a tree right outside the pub. Is it a magnolia tree? I have found this setting on my camera that makes the background a bit blurry to bring the focal point right to the foreground. Blimely that was like quoting the manual there !!!
Thank you for your kind comments about me being poorly. Still firing on three pistons but the nausea has gone, so that's a bonus.

Not sure about the hearts down the side but hey! The paper is Stampin Up! The image is Rachael Anne Miller, coloured with copics (not my best - but I'm still poorly!). The hearts are quickutz and put through the cuttlebug swiss dots folder. They are coloured with Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey distress inks (and the edging) and then topped with Viva precious metal gold paint. It's a shame the gold doesn't shine better in the photo......

I did two of each one except the blue one (well she only wanted 15!!!!). It looks a bit sad on its own so may have to go and do another one of them tomorrow.......
