Hi All
thank you for your lovely comments about my little settee, I enjoyed doing it.

i have just come back from my hospital tests and appointment, it appears that I may have COPD, I am to have more scans, take a different inhaler and go back in 2 mths to see if there has been an improvement, and don't you just love it when they say, do not worry, as she also said due to the size of the clots I had on my lungs last year, I may have some residue of clots still there, but as I am on the warfarin, its OK!!!  oh well more tests, more drugs, good job I remain positive.

Friday is supposed to be the day the stones are to be laid in my garden, if you could see the weather we are having here, rain, winds and cold, I somehow think it will be again cancelled, where is the sun!!!
hopefully back to minis tomorrow

back to minis

Hi All
I managed to get back to some minis today, my garden is now on hold, we have everything ready, stones delivered, ground prepared and guess what, its raining, we had decided that Friday would be the day and guess what, we are in for heavy rain and thunder storms, Its my fault I kept bragging about the sun, you know that fleeting week of sun we had, think that was summer.

Tomorrow I have got appointments at the hospital, lung function tests then seeing consultant, at least I do not have to wait for the results.

So today I made sure that I did some minis, I did feel a bit let down now that my duck house got broke, but I am not giving up and have decided to make a beach hut for them instead, so I have measured out loads of bits of wood, they have been painted, I always paint before gluing as paint does not seem to go over glue very well, so I am back to my favourite hobby, watching paint dry.

I did complete a little settee, not shabby chic, looking through my stash I found this settee and loves the shape of it, I painted it gold, added some jewellery, which I also painted gold, recovered using silvery silk material, added trim and 3 cushion's, pretty pleased with the result.

Hi All
Disaster!! my duck house got broken, partly my fault, we were very busy clearing the garden and the rain came, in our haste to collect the tools etc, we just threw them in my work room, in the process my little duck house fell to the floor and got broke, I have had to admit defeat, I tried all yesterday to repair it, but it was too far gone. It has made me lose heart with this project, I will continue to dress the ducks, but will put the project on hold till I feel like tackling it again.

we are now ready in the garden for my cousin to lay my stones, I got some little lights and my son put them around the wisteria, they look so pretty at night. We have only one problem, after all the sunshine we now have rain, just hope it stops long enough for the patio to be laid. Today we are removing my wall paper in my bedroom, I am having a feature wall, I got some lovely flowered pattern paper, my cousin is also going to hang that as well.
So you see I have been busy, I have had very little time for minis, I hope soon to be back in my work room creating and making,
