Catch Up

Oh I have had such a busy and tiring few days I have hardly looked at any blogs let alone write anything. But I am here and loving catching up on some reading. OK now what have I been doing since Wednesday? Thursday I had a few hours work and then went and roamed around the “Quilt and Craft Fair”. These types of events are not good for a crafter that is also a non-finisher. I really made an effort not to purchase any new projects. All was going well until I got to the bead area and I got just a little carried away. When I got home I hit the wall again (as in the being exhausted wall) and I had a nice bath and had an early night. Then Friday – what did I do Friday? I had an early appointment at out patients, to get the results of my operation. After a two hour wait, I finally got to see the Dr. – might I add for about 10 minutes. Anyway she was happy how the surgery went; apparently it was a lot more involved and longer than they initially thought. But pathology has tested everything and all is clear, but that wasn’t a surprise for me – I knew all would be OK. Then Friday afternoon I went to work – I once again hit the wall and had times where it was hard to keep my eyes open. It just amazes me how draining having an anaesthetic can be. When does it wear of?? Then last night I went to a card making class with some girlfriends. Here is a photo of the card we made. It’s hard to see by the photo but when the tag is pulled the pictures open up. I think it turned out OK. Now I am up to today – Shane arrived home from Darwin – with my pressie – and a bit sunburnt. It’s amazing to think in one country Shane can be in Darwin (which is right at the top) and be getting sunburnt and I can be in Melbourne (bottom) and be freezing. So much has been accomplished today except a lot of talking, oh and I completed two necklace orders I had received.

  1. wow! that card is beautiful! Glad your surgery went well, and remember that any surgery takes quite a while to get over as does all the drugs your poor body had to endure. Take it a little easier.

  2. I'm a big fan of quilt and craft shows... I search them out and enjoy walking the aisles looking for treasures.

    You made a gorgeous card!!!! The details are wonderful.

    Hope you find your energy soon. It just takes times.

    Cheers, jj

  3. You're so creative. You have a lovely life. Glad your surgery turned out o.k.

  4. I'm chuckling because I haven't been able to check out others blogs for the past 3 days and here I get here and you didn't even notice! lol

    You're one busy lady Davine, I'm so happy to hear that everything went fine regarding the surgery and are you sure it's the anesthetic or could it be that you're overdoing it and need some down time?

    Lovely card, I sometimes wish I had time to make cards, they're so beautiful but maybe in another lifetime... somebody has to keep Hallmark in business! :-)

    Have a wonderful day!


I would love to hear your comments.
