DH isn't sure yet whether the night out is going ahead or not (the words: booze-up, brewery, organisation and lack of spring to mind!), so the chill out may not happen tonight either. :0( Mind you, I don't plan on being made comatose by repeats of any programmes tonight if he stays in - that remote control was promised to me and I'm having it. Mmmmwaaaahhhaaahaa! ;0)
As there are no stitching pics (again) here's what I made during yesterday's cardmaking session:
The tag toppers were bought ready-made, from a seller on that well-known auction site, I just added the base card and some lovely printed vellums.
This one I've made for DH's DBro. Another ready-made topper, I just added a card and the extra paper layers.
Sally: I've vaguely thought about selling my cards but I have no outlet for them and there's also a lot of competition out there. I've also had previous dealings with the craft fair circuit, years ago: it's difficult to get in to and takes up valuable weekends, so I don't fancy that again. I also usually tend to only make cards for people I know, as that way I know their likes/dislikes, so each card is quite personal and made specifically for them. It's only this last couple of weeks that the urge to pre-make cards has started - I thought it would be nice to be organised, for a change. :0)
Well DS got to the appointment OK yesterday......... his boss took him and brought him back. Good job he did, as the docks there are huge and a rabbit warren and he wouldn't have found the place on his own. DS duly peed in the cup (on time Karen LOL) and all is fine: nothing illegal, nothing nasty going on and blood pressure/heart rate is fine - the only thing that was a bit off was his exhaling into one of those breathing thingies, it's not as high as it should be but that is due to his asthma. I reckon that means he's still got a job. :0)
Not sure what the plans are for tomorrow but Sunday we are off to my DSis's again, so DH can have a look at her burglar alarm for her: it's gone off a couple of times in the wee small hours and given her a bad fright. Not the nicest ways of waking up, as we know from experience. I also want a nosey at the new pots, herbs and plants she's bought for her garden, especially as there's a new variety of lavender among them that I've not heard of before - might have to beg some cuttings from it if it's really nice. ;0)
Well I'd best go as I'm determined to finally make a start on Part 3 of For Amanda, even if it's just a few stitches.
Hope you all have a good weekend, whatever your plans are. :0)
