His and Hers ‘Me’ Time

This afternoon has been spent doing our own thing in our own space.
Since turning the bed ninety degrees in the spare bedroom,  there is a lot more space for Hubby to work. He has now rectified the small problems he had on the boat and back on an even keel sotospeak with his progress.

I’ve been busy making cards this afternoon, and because they were all basic and not too fiddly, except one which I’ll come back to in a minute,  it was restful and therapeutic.
I botched one as the lattice I was carefully cutting out broke, so I cut that bit off and had a ‘staggered’ card with a bit of trim, a vase of flowers and a couple of butterflies.  It’s the one on the right here:
I made 2 like the one on the left, my background being a jam jar cover, and also 2 Christmas cards like the one in the centre which was two sides of a gift bag!
These were the other three five inch cards I made today:
I made four four inch cards using a simple greeting, adding feathers and leaves on two and just backing paper on the other two.
Here’s a close up of the gold butterfly (left)
I’ve enjoyed myself today and now have a few more Hello cards in the box.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
