Artist Trading Cards
I received another 2 Artist Trading Cards yesterday, letters E and G.
This E is for Envy and is from Mim. It opens up too:
Isn't that super? It was enclosed in another of Mim's own cards:
I rather like the rocks round it too! This now has pride of place on one of my notice boards.
The other ATC is from soulbrush and is G for Gossip:
I love soulbrush's bold painting style and how clever to have the 2nd gossip with just her mouth at the top! I love it. Soul also included some blank ATCs for me to use and some pretty paper. she is a star! Well, all of our group are.
Jim popped into Ennis today for a meeting of his volunteer group. I'll tell you about that tomorrow. I went out and carried on tidying and clearing the bed just outside the back yard. It certainly looks much better and I found some snowdrops in flower, hidden under a broom bush. I will try and photograph them tomorrow if it's fine.
While I was working away, the sky blackened and we had a hail storm! I carried on, putting a hat on for protection and after about five minutes it all stopped. Having finished the clearing, I managed to get the motorised wheelbarrow started and fetched 2 barrow loads of compost to put on the bed. I usually leave this too late, when the plants are all growing, but this time I was able to put quite a thick layer on the top. The plants will love that. My feet had frozen and it was getting dark so I went inside and watched some of the olympics (on replay).
Jim came back with some pink and white roses for me. They are beautiful and are now in a vase.
Oh, did I mention I took a sky photo?
Dark clouds were gathering....
Then the hail appeared in the valley, on its way to me!
Sandy Finds a Special Place
I walked into the snug and was going to do a bit of my rugging. I have cut lots of the material into strips and keep it in a basket (a present from my son and dil Sam the Christmas before last). It's perfect for the job. I was surprised to see this:
A squatter in my basket. I spoke to Sandy and he popped his head lazily out of the basket:
Isn't that just a super shot? Sandy clearly thought my basket a purr-fect place to sleep!
Then he just snuggled back down again!
I had to feel around in the bottom to find my material balls! He just ignored me.
Now I'm off to watch some of the Olympics. Happy Weekend Everyone.
