Day 77- A day late!


Good afternoon.

I hope you are all well…and that muscles are not aching too much for those of you that ran the half marathon. I always find that the second day after exercise is the worst day. Not that I am doing much exercise at the minute…..DR’s orders!

So what have I been up to?

Well; we have had a short but very enjoyable visit from Sister In Law. She came up and stayed over night with us. It has been I while since I saw her, and it was great to catch up about goings on.  She will verify that I did do my make yesterday too, but it would have been rude to break up her short visit while I blogged last night.

DH had a day’s holiday yesterday, to recover from the previous day’s activities, which meant he was able to do the heavy lifting in the tidying up process, ready for Sis in Law’s visit. Tidying up was the name of the game as, when I used my critical eye on the house on Sunday, I could honestly say that there was no way any visitor would be let passed the threshold. We muddled through…. together…me sitting and directing, DH moving. Great team work!

We had to give a yellow card to monsters 2 and 3. They have been warned that next time they leave their room in a state, black sacks would be coming out, and things littering the floor would be binned! We will see how long it takes.

So what was yesterday’s make? Well I wanted something that was a little bit different from what I usually do. When I set out on this project I wanted to try new things or do things in different ways. Yesterday I certainly made some thing familiar in a different way.

I found that in my stash of making things I had a number of sheets of paper. I began a few days ago, if you remember, cutting out triangles.

Do you remember these? Well I spent a little time yesterday cutting out the rest of the triangles in a range of colours.

I am not sure whether you are familiar with Washi tape? This is paper tape from Japan that can be cut, torn, written on, stuck to things, unstuck to things, and generally used to decorate things. Well I have invested in some to produce this………..

…..paper bunting! I have really enjoyed making this. I know it looks a little bit rough around the edges at the moment…but we will get there.

I think it looks bright and colourful and really cheers me up.

See you later
