It's certainly been a long time since I last visited my own blog. Ive had a bumpy start to 08 with removal of my wisdom's which left me with paresthesia from nerve damage ,NUMBNESS of my teeth,gums, lips and chin on my left side of my dial. Fingers crossed it heals but for now am thankful my speech is back to near normal, so time will tell, fingers crossed.
Got a shiny new toy, A SEWING MACHINE after Christmas, which has kept me entertained with a huge learning curve ahead ,as those close to me know, I'm fabric challenged !
Fantastic timing to be asked to join in with some wonderful gals to do a fabric book swap and these are my covers for my book. Who would have thought I would be take part in a group called FABRIC GIRLZ. See dreams can come TRUE !
Included some mini icicles brooches inside the book for the gals to keep. How else did I keep my mind occupied while sitting bedside at hospital while my middle gal had knee surgery. Cut bones held by screws and thigh to ankle plaster had a three day stay.A long recovery but gotta say she is a wonderful patient. Bet she never imagined mummy would be bathing her at her age !
The icicle doll's made from Belinda's pattern has kept me VERY entertained. I did her three for three swap and have so enjoyed this little pattern so much Ive been churning them out. I just make them out of calico, gel medium transfer an image or fabrico a stamped image and H2O or suncolour the body and decorate to my hearts content.
Been playing and learning photoshop CS3, which is GRAND ! So much better than FireFox, but that was a great starting block. I can spend hours tweaking this and that and thrilled there are so many free tutorials out there, not to mention the free fonts and brushes.
So I haven't been wasting time doing housework at all you'll be pleased to know. I do have more to share but must away to play counter strike with miss 15. It aids the healing so she tells me
