Well, that fortnight went quickly [but doesn't it always when you're having fun?]. I've been missing in action while all the celebrations were going on last week but I have to be honest and say a week in Albufeira was just what the Dr ordered. It's been a very busy 12 months for us with getting all the work on our bungalow done so it was really lovely to have nothing at all to do but eat, sleep and read an occasional book or two for us both [and for those that follow me on Facebook you will have seen the occasional ice cream eaten and glass of Sangria drank!....well you just have to don't you?].
Before I share my desk today I want to say that I really hope Julia's surgery went well yesterday and today is the first day on her road to a good recovery.....I'm sure we were all thinking of her yesterday and really hope all our love and positive thoughts carry her through this difficult time.
On to what is on my desk today....
I was challenged by one of my blogging friends to make some special bunting for a very special little 5 year old boy who's in hospital having treatment for a brain tumour. He loves superheros but I don't have any fabric printed with superheros so I set to to design my own.
I covered my desk in fabrics in the appropriate colours.
Did rather a lot of planning, pressing and snipping and cut out all the pieces needed.
Here's my desk mid planning.
And here's all the flags with the designs bond-a-webbed on the front and today I will be stitching them all in place before I back all the flags and stitch the bunting together. :-)
If I can remember I will snap a pic of it when it's finished to show you next week.
That's all from me for today. I have received a few ATCs from the swap but Jo and I need to get together to swap and share them yet so I will try to snap a pic and thank all next week.
Here's hoping our dear friend and blog leader is back in the driving seat before too very long but until then I would like to thank Jan for holding the fort for us.
Biggest hugs to all,
