IT AIN'T WHAT YOU DO, IT'S THE WAY THAT YOU DO IT
AND THAT'S WHAT GETS RESULTS.....
A couple of things before we kick off into Desk Mode today - if you follow me on Bloglovin' then I have deleted my account there so you may find I don't pop up in your feed anymore. And thank you for the various tips on how to deal with the BPOs (B****y Peel Offs)...I think they might be a step too far for me..the aggravation factor completely outweighs the satisfaction!
My card making took a different turn this week - my son gave me a beautiful Mother's Day card with a paper-cut front. Well, it HAD to be recycled...look:
Pretty huh? Well, I had fun with a craft knife and 5 minutes later.....
...had deconstructed it into several pieces. Also, the back of that navy card had rather lovely stripes on so I used that instead. In all, I made three new cards from the one! I did ask R if it was ok to do all this first :-D
It struck me that I need to do some sewing as well and I thought I'd make some more bags for Margaret's charity so the fabric stash was upended onto the JanCave table again!
Well, a small part of it anyway! I sorted out the stuff that I don't think I'll use again and cut out another 8 bags' worth.
And this is the final piece of this fabric - I must have got this 7 or so years ago, there was just enough to make one bag. Bye bye fabric, I've really enjoyed your muted tones, great typefaces and design - you're going to be used for a great cause.
The weird upsy-downsy weather has continued this week but Sunday was a gorgeous day, blue skies, sunshine, warm. Hooray!! I know it's going to change again by the end of the week but G and I made the most of this day and went for a walk. This magnificent Norman Castle is in the next village:
It's a beauty! We didn't go in this time but walked all around and up lots of hills!
Can you imagine being an attacker and facing an assault on this? No, me neither - no wonder sieges and undermining the foundations were the most effective ways of achieving a surrender! And I know it's wrong of me but I kept expecting to see the Monty Python and the Holy Grail mob peering over the battlements :-D
Have a great week!
