So far so good.

Well it was all exciing stuff here this morning when this parcel arrived. As you can see I was in a bit of a hurry to get at it, although I did manage to grab the phone at the same time and call Tony as it looked like I had been sent a brand new lappy.
As usual, I was too excited too soon and it was just a new box. Twisty and the hairy one showed them what they thought of that!!

Still, so far it's doing ok, but I'm not holding my breath, time will tell. It actually went to Germany for this repair and the Germans did in a week, what the repair centre here hadn't managed in 3 weeks.

So here's a couple of things I've been working on while my baby's been away.

This is a clipboard I altered for my friend Jane's birthday. I got the clipboard from Sarah's cards and the papers are k & co wild saffron range.

I finally got round to making some cushions for Lynne to match her canvas I did her for Christmas. These were meant to be presents too, but I didn't have enough time!!

Talking of canvases, I covered two more for me to swap for the ones I got bored with in my flat. This first one is using some material I got cheap at Dunelm Mill last year. I'm doing another one, exactly the same for the Auction for Ellie that's taking place at Bubblyfunk. The material looks like silk (I can't remember what it is now) and is duck egg blue with flocked beige circles. Looks better than it sounds!

This other one is covered with some material I got off ebay. With the bit left I'm doing something for mum for mother's day - I've got to get my arse into gear to make it though.

Lynne gave me a cardi she didn't want anymore (I love my sister's clear outs), but it didn't look right on me, so I took the belt off it and put the cardi in for charity (is that awful?). I then made this bag charm for my friend Coris's birthday using the wooden disks.

Finally, another friend has had a baby girl, so I made this card using the basic grey 2 scoops paper. The letters are cuttlekids dies, which are being used loads by me.

So after that little update, I'm off to get some food and get off the net. I discovered while being without a pc, that I must be spending too long online, so I have to be disciplined to avoid the exhaustion concentrating causes (that's when I do concentrate). I'll be catching up with everyone's blogs over the next few days.

It's good to be back with my blog buddies and forum friends, it's been so quiet in my world!!
