It is now nearly 6 weeks since my wonderful hubby passed away and it is all still rather surreal. I usually manage the days resonably well but the evenings and nights are long and very hard. I have found the secret is to keep busy with one thing or another and have watched more TV than I have for a long time as at least it stops you thinking too much.
The craft mojo is still a little lacking but I have managed a mothers day card and a card for a friends anniversary these past few days. The brown tabard has been finished and was being worn before we got this spell of warm weather, but it will be a good cover up when the weather turns chilly again which no doubt it will do. There was a good one and a quarter balls of wool left over so they are being converted into a cable cushion cover of my own design which will get pride of place on my bed when I finally get around to decorating it later this year – she says hopefully.
This Mothers Day card has been fashioned using a Craftwork card which I always love to use as they are such lovely quality. The flowers have been cut using a Blossom Nestie and they are actually Colour Catchers which I use in the washing machine and always keep when they have actually caught some colour. I embossed a scrap piece of card using a CraftsToo folder called Daisy and Swirls. The rest of the items were all from my supplies.
To stop this post from becoming too long I am going to leave the other photos for another day.
Enjoy the sunshine and happy crfating every one.
