Sorry I've not posted for what seems like MONTHS. I normally love Christmas but this year, am re-writing the song The 12 Days of ... to include the days when the central heating boiler had to have major surgery, then Boxing Day the soil pipe froze (36 hours without a toilet) and the water from this came through the ceiling over the stairs, then the NEXT day my DH shouted for me at 4am to help sweep the water out, from flooding the kitchen (burst pipe to washing machine). Then, the following day I started a cold which turned to a chest infection, and yesterday our doctor signed me off work for a week! I keep telling myself that 2011 can only be better LOL!
Please don't think I'm complaining - it's at times like these that wonderful, good friends have proved more valuable than gold, and I appreciate all the blessings we do have.
However, the infection is really sapping my energy, not to mention my mojo so there's nothing on my work table at the moment, but here are the Christmas cards I made for my family this year. I wanted a country feel for them, so decided to use various Christmassy BP's in a patchwork design, with faux stitching.
I've just spent this evening catching up with my fav blogs, looking for inspiration and enthusiasm for making birthday cards for my two lovely daughters, both in the next two weeks - watch this space!
Love for now, and I hope your Christmas and New Year were more peaceful than ours.
