hello again


Thought it was about time I updated my blog... Can't believe how quickly time is going.... Have had a good week.... Found out I had been allocated a garage for my car.... Feel so much happier now car is out of sight at night....
Thought I would show a picture of Tommy and Merlin.. Merlin is now 7 months old and think he is going to be bigger than Tom.. They seem to be getting on better.. Lots of rough and tumble but it doesn't seem to get nasty....Looking forward to the good weather and lots of walks...

Hope this video will work.. Tom & Merl enjoying a summer day yesterday....

Well, have done it again.... It has been a while since I last posted.... Busy with work and busy enjoying 2 weeks off for the Easter break.. Haven't made any cards for a long time but wanted to make one for a neighbour whose husband passed away 2 weeks ago.. As you know I love my pergamano and it is perfect for condolance cards.... This one is a mix of pergamano and a decoupage flower and backing paper from one of Susan Winter's CDs.

Well here is my attempt at working on black parchment paper... not so easy.. Need a lightbox to trace the pattern but really like the effect..

First love

Long time no craft... Last week no work because of snow and a good excuse to get my pergamano stuff out.  It has been packed away for so long thought it was time it got a good dust down... Pergamano was and remains my first love.  It is so time consuming but so satisfying to actuall finish a piece.. This card took 2 days to complete from start to finish... Working on it every available spare minute... Think it is one of the best and nicest pieces I have ever done... 
Week off next week, so maybe will get some more pieces done..

Well, have has nearly a week off work due to snow. Hoping it will be back to normal for Monday.
Dogs have loved it.. First time snow for Merlin.. And looking in my pics folder it snowed this time in Feb last year... Didn't last as long though or cause so much havoc...
Just waiting for the better weather so we can get pup housetrained.... He asks to go outside with Tommy and then he comes in to do his business.. lol....
We got to get it right sometime....
