I have several projects in mind I want to do so thought I would clear the decks early of all the swaps and challenges and make a start on one of the projects – a firescreen for our sitting room hearth. However I was sent a very full box of stamps a while ago and they also needed sorting, putting some cushion mount of some and getting them put into the right binders and indexing them; two days later I still haven’t finished them and one of the binders desperately needs some order and organisation and dividing into a second binder as the first one is rather full to bursting!

I really will make a start on that firescreen project!!

Thank you for looking x




Q & L #8

Here I am skimming in by the skin of my teeth! Broadband connection has not been playing well lately so words will need to be had with someone.

Thank you to everyone who commented on Q&L #7, so many lovely comments which were much appreciated. I don’t think I am going to get the chance to comment on many this time.

Okay enough drivel – the words over on the Craft Barn challenge are Hurt and/or Knowledge. For the song lyrics I chose Love hurts by the Everly Brothers although many people sang this including Jim Capaldi, Cher, Nazareth and Roy Orbison, I think we have three versions of this song and like all of them.

Love Hurts

The actual card isn’t as pale as the photo shows and you may just be able to see the little bird’s tears.
