mold II photos part 1 Oct extra

Phew that's a long title, isn't it.

What it means is that I have for you an extra set of photos from the Mold II project for October which was shown in part 1.  Dot of Mold II club has sent me photos of the concertina book she completed from the project Rita showed them.

As in other books we have learnt to make during the year - Dot has also added extra smaller pages & pockets;

Dot, it is beautiful. I think you said it was a present for someone. They will be absolutely delighted to receive it.

As we are having our grandson over at Christmas I will be taking lots of photos, then after Christmas will make this as a memory book for our first Christmas all together.

Oops - just noticed I did not say - Good morning.  So - good morning everyone I hope you are all well.

'Bye for now.

a bit of catching up

Good afternoon everyone.

Just a little chat to bring you up to date with things.  I am progressing well although still uncomfortable & sore, & tired.  I have had a little set back as I have a problem with one of my operation points. This has made me me a little more uncomfortable & I am finding it difficult using my right arm.

Typing is a bit difficult & I cannot keep it up for too long.  I have things to put here on the blog - some club photos, member showcases, my own card makes from before.  I will get on here as much as I can - but it will probably be in short sharp doses.

Please send me any photos of your work that I can feature on the blog.

This is all I can manage for now - will be back again soon.

I am home

Hello everyone.

Just popping in to let you all know that I am now back home. Came home on Monday afternoon in fact.

I am very tired, wobbly & fortunately not in pain - but very uncomfortable. Not able to get too comfortable a sleeping position at the moment but managing to sleep reasonably well.

My wonderful hubby is looking after me really well & I am being waited on. Mind you he has just told me not to do too much on here, so he is also getting good at nagging too.  😏 Would be lost without him.

I will stop in a moment for today but not until I have said a big thank you for all the lovely text & email messages, beautiful cards & flowers. Plus a big thank you to Hayley who sent me an amazing hospital survival kit - many things got used.

Thank you to you all from the bottom of my heart.
Much love.

Mold II photos - part 3

Good afternoon ladies.

This afternoon I am showing you the photos of a second little project that the ladies from Mold II club did at their meeting last Tuesday.  This project was given by Annette - that lovely folded paper Christmas tree.  Here are the photos of the samples Annette made;

They are lovely Annette.  This last one looks as if it is in black & white paper - so was it perhaps your show & tell card?  I noticed that there wasn't one amongst the other photos.

Tomorrow & Thursday I have rather busy days so I may not get on here to write anything. Then of course it will be Friday & the day of my op - so it will be a few days before I write again. 

Take care everyone.
Back soon - 'bye for now.

Message for CSNW ladies

Good morning

Just to make sure that you know I will be popping in to your meeting on Wednesday evening.

Bob will be with me again - purely because I will during the afternoon have been back to BTW for the results of my MRI.

I am not sure how long I will stay - but long enough to show you how to make the U-fold card.

See you then.

Mold II photo - part 2

Good morning everyone

Today I have the second set of photos from the Mold II club meeting last Tuesday.

For some unknown reason I have shown these the opposite way round to that I normally do, because these photos are of the Show & Tell.  The theme for this card was Christmas Black & White only - although I did say some sparkle was allowed;

I love the way you have framed those poinsettias Christine, & doesn't the black on white really show up the detail of the petals.

Another card from Christine showing the nativity scene in silhouette.

These baubles on Sue's card are absolutely delightful. It is so nice to see them hanging free.

What a striking card. I love it Carolyn.

Another stunning card, this time from Elizabeth . 
That dotty frame really shows the focal image off well.

As I have said before about the groups & the show & tell challenges - you never disappoint.

I have another set of photos from that meeting to show you - which I will do tomorrow.

'Bye for now.

Mold II photos - part 1

Good morning everyone

This morning I have some photos of the project at the Mold II club last Tuesday.  Rita brought in a delightful Christmas Album for them to make.  The photos I have are of the various samples that Rita brought in for the ladies to see.

I am not sure if there will be photos of those made by the ladies as they wouldn't have been able to finish them completely during the evening - so perhaps photos will gradually come through later.

I hope I have got these together in the right order & correct album;

I love the little channel adhered to the back of the album for the ribbon to run through - a brilliant idea & I think it would work on cards that are wrapped with a ribbon tie.

Rita I hope I have the right things together based on how the photos came from Carolyn (for which once again many thanks Carolyn).  But most importantly they show just how lovely these little albums are.  

I must sit myself down & make one of these, perhaps when I am quietly (? 😇?) recovering after next week.

That's all for today. enjoy the rest of your weekend.
