Come on own up, who dragged it closer to me?
Just found out today that my angiogram (with an angioplasty if its found to be required on the day) - is to be the 10th November.
Anyway I have been making some dangly decorations for a craft stall on the 26th ( assuming I will be able to do it of course now!).
Nothing special, just scrappy bits - though the cats look too scary, they'd do better for Halloween! Might dish them out if I get trick or treat'ers at the weekend LOL
I was busy before half term at work, had to make up a storysack for the Marion Gamble children's book - Mooncat.
I used the Velcro on/off boards again -
Think I have mentioned we are licensed to make an adapted version of books used by our children and this is a large print version which goes in the storysack too.
I had never read the Five Little Monkeys nursery rhyme you know, but was asked to make 5 copies of it in book form for sighted children this time.
Anyway there are some great resources available free on Sparklebox
one of which is - Five Little Monkeys Sitting on a Tree - so I used the
graphics to make up laminated pages in book format and simply added Velcro on and off monkey heads.
Okay, these pics are the right way up on my USB ............ come on Blogger! get a grip!
Did I tell you I found some cd storage units? In fact there's a darker wood one to the left that I bought too from a charity shop : )
And they are now choc full of fabric, I can at last actually see 50% of what I have stashed away!
We have had a new statue recently put up locally for Amy Johnson, sad to say the local street kids appeared to have smeared her with mud - bloody little tykes.
Grandson thought she was ace though : )
He had me adding (torn cotton strips, dyed with coffee) additional wraps to his Egyptian mummy costume and mask, ready for Halloween.
He had done the Egyptians at school so we had the big book out and he drew Horus and various other figures, wrote a shorts tory in hieroglyphics and then decided he needed a mummified cat for this weekend lol
So more torn cotton strips, a juice bottle and a polystyrene ball stuck on top and voila - and neither of my own cats were harmed in any way!
However, Harvey was a bit concerned ......
