Send me sunshine today please!
I have a task that is going to take from dawn to dusk - I need to paint the shop door.
I know, it's only a little door - the actual painting will not take too long but the paint I've
selected says it takes 16 hours to dry! This will necessitate the door being left open otherwise
it could be tricky trying to open it the next day!
Giving the shop a facelift has been Mitchell's project but I've chosen to get a involved today
as I find painting therapeutic.
I also think we may not have many more dry days so a little bit of a rush to finish the job.
I will post some pictures soon, the colours are very similar but it will look nice and fresh.
While I'm waiting in the shop all those hours I intend to have a good tidy up,
and Elliott is going to join me - we have a little crafty plan up our sleeves...
more news on that soon :)
Talking of Elliott, things did not quite go to plan at the hospital on Friday.
The upshot is that the radiotherapy will definitely have to be postponed while
Elliott receives some special help with his anxiety issues regarding the mask he has to wear.
Those of you who have contacted me, left comments - thank you so much.
You appreciate how much of an ordeal this is for him.
I have a great deal of confidence in the Psychology Department at The Royal Marsden,
we are going to be back and forth a lot over the next few weeks.
We will get through this but like most things, it will take time and some careful handling.
We actually have the mask at home now so we can build up Elliott's confidence -
Bella is definitely wary of it!
Now to some craft!
How about a little decorated organza gift bag - all achieved with one die,
(these dies create a hole to the flower centre, perfect for inserting a brad).
The finishing touch is green felt leaves.
I made a base for the bag to keep it upright but of course if you
fill it with goodies that will keep it standing perfectly!
I attached everything to the bag using Fabri-Tac - this is one amazing fabric glue!
Adapt this little bag to any colour-way, perhaps for a Ruby Wedding Anniversary or...
Christmas! Yes, I managed to mention Christmas again -
I do hope you are all enjoying your weekend.
Take care friends.
