|Part of my collection of defunct fob watches.|
Anyway, I found one of the only photos I took whilst we were in Sweden the other week and it's of the herd of reindeer wandering around the Liseberg. I know it's an aftershot but aren't they lovely?
I bought a Sizzix yonks ago and haven't really done much in the way of fabric with it but then there were some offers on for the dies and I bought an apple core one. I didn't really see the point in spending money on dies for squares, rectangles and triangles when they can be cut easily and far more economically with a ruler. This is a shape that's not easily cut at all so I went for it and with a pack of Hancock's fabric made this little flimsie.
It's funny I happened to mention on Facebook that Hancock's used to be so wonderful in having free international postage offers now and then, providing you spent a lot but who doesn't. As their name had been linked on the post they must have seen it as a couple of days later, miracle of miracles, they had an international postage offer of half price postage! Nice of them to remember us, I hope it was profitable for them.
I have been taking part in Dawn Schiller's PocketFae class and yesterday I finally managed to sit upright and make this little guy, hence all my watches out. This one was in a Tim Holtz fob as I wanted to practise first. I'm 50/50 on liking him or not. I can make quite a few adjustments when I make the next one but it's very, very difficult when the depth is so shallow.
I've had a very bad week with the tummy unfortunately including a point where John found me collapsed on the hall floor unconscious. He and Elsa have had me wrapped in cotton wool all week and I have to see my consultant again today. I am taking it easy but we have sort of cancelled Christmas this year and, as I said at the beginning, time has just disappeared. What we have will have to do as I don't have the breath or energy to go out at all.
It has been a strange year for us but, as always this time of year, we will put it to bed with the great excitement of the clean page of a new one in just over a week. If I don't 'see' you on Facebook or have the time to do another post on here have a fantastic, healthy and happy Christmas and New Year. XXX
