"Big Sisters"

Hello how are you all at the beginning of yet another new week??  
Hope you are all well, if not I send you a ((hug)) to help.
Thank you so much for all the lovely comments on my Posts over the past week.  
I think I have recovered, from doing my Card Class, working in the Tearoom Friday then having the boys all day Saturday.  Thank goodness the boys spend so much time with John.  I really only need to feed them.  They needed a fair bit feeding on Saturday   ...   they were stacking logs!!
Rhod across the road does all the cutting of the trees, then we share the wood.  Rhod and Isobel are so good at helping us with things like that.   John has a metal plate and elbow in his right arm.  When he uses the Electric Hedge Trimmer his arm really plays him up.  Just imagine what a Chain Saw would do!!!!   We have the hedge cut for us and Rhod does the cutting of the trees.  The boys have stacked a fair bit of wood but still loads more to do for the winter.
We have had an absolutely beautiful day here today.  Washing all dried, in folded but not ironed as yet.
Last week I had lots of orders for cards, guess what??  ...  Yep! forgot to photograph some of them.  The ones I did remember to photograph have not been handed over so I don`t really want to show them yet.
Here is one I did  for Hazel`s daughter a couple of weeks ago.   I know it has been given to the girls so I can show it.   They have a new baby sister so are now "Big Sisters"

Till next time

  2. Beautiful card Patricia. I can well remember the cutting and stacking of logs, in fact my younger daughter and her husband are now doing the same. Just think of the lovely log fires as all we have now is central heating. Hugs Rita xx

  3. Hi Patricia, what a lovely card and thought for the two girls, the image is beautiful, reminds me when my Daughter used to sit in a chair with my son when he was a few months old and read him stories, beautiful.

    Love & Hugs

  12. Morning Patricia, Your card is really lovely, I bet the girls loved it.
    Your 'boys' have had a very productive weekend with the log stacking, bet they wanted lots of food to keep them going ha ha.
    My weather has been horrid, yesterday it was very misty first thing, so I thought we would have had sunshine in the afternoon, no such luck, it started drizzling and went really chilly and horrible, this morning is much the same, no chance of getting any washing outside here !!
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
