Hope your week got off to a good start.
After my fall on Saturday I got awful pains in the
night, so dragged myself to the ER Sunday morning.
I have 2 cracked ribs, and as well as the bruising on my
knee, I am developing a black eye with a matching
nose - I must have kissed the ground with power!
Pity it's not carnival, it would make a good
disguise....And as I am not allowed to lift anything,
or bend, or do housew**k, I am happy that there
is something positive to report.... And I have a few weeks
to read, do some crafting, watch old films etc -
'Always look on the bright side of life.....'
On Tuesday we are starting a new Challenge at TIOT -
Anything but square.
As always, you have 2 weeks to link your creations to us,
and projects of all formats are allowed, as long as they fit the theme.
I made a mixed media tag (8"), using lots of elements which are
not square. As usual I used my clear-the-table-technique,
AKA everything but the kitchen sink - scraps of old
letters, paper napkins, stenciling, stitching and more:
And I have another not square piece.
I altered a Moleskine A5 journal I got
for my birthday, using a piece of my vintage, rusty linen
from the erosion bundle and an iron-on
beaded owl - quick and simple:
I am linking the journal cover to Art Journal Journey.
And today is also Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday, I would like
to welcome all of the nice ladies of the T Gang.
This was taken on New Year's Day. People take their Sekt down
to the Rhine, use the bottles as rocket-launches,
and then leave all their garbage behind them
when they stagger home!
I like to bake a tray of spice bars each week, they are cheaper
and better than shop cookies. These were
filled with strawberry and ginger jam - help
I had an English visitor and made 'Toad in the Hole',
sausages backed in Yorkshire pudding batter:
And lemon cake and cappuccino are high on my list of faves:
I was fascinated to see men working at the top of the old mill
And the moon this week was really magical:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
