Relaxing times

Sometimes we all need to unwind and after the frustrations of this morning and a walk in the park, I settled down to make some cards this afternoon.
I’d already done some the other day, but my back had started to hurt so after making seven, I put everything away.
I’d made one for a neighbours 60th birthday and was really pleased with it, but it turns out she’s only 59 this year so it will stay in the box for now.
I had another 80th to make, a 40th and also a 35th Wedding Anniversary so I got well stuck in. The stork went together pretty well with Congratulations on it, so as I don’t know anyone about to have a baby, it’s gone in my box for sale. You never know.

Anyway, I made eight today and had to give up because the natural light was failing fast and trying to work in artificial light gives me a headache.
These are my efforts today. Sorry about the quality of the pictures. We have three birds and five flowers which were kits I’d bought years ago and were at the bottom of the box.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

    They are all beautiful. That last one with the morning glory really caught my eye – outstanding!

    • These particular kits are no longer available to buy so I was glad I had a few at the bottom of the box. I bought some similar last year and they were so flimsy to make, the flower stems kept breaking.
