By that I mean my DH is feeling so much better than last Wednesday which, after all, was only day 1 after his operation. He has been to some very dark places this week suffering awful pain, but I am glad to say, he now feels so much brighter although still having to be very careful. He isn't allowed to lift anything for 2 months for example, so this summer is out for doing any jobs. We will catch up one day I suppose - oh! a few pigs just flew overhead LOL.
Can we both say a great big THANK YOU for all the get well wishes. They have been so appreciated. Can I also say thank you to Julia, our leader of the Wednesday desk hopping brigade, because had she not come up with this wonderful weekly event, I would not have made so many 'crafty' friends and therefore, not had the good wishes from all over the globe.
I have made a few ATCs this past week when 'T' has been in bed (see previous posts if you want a peep) but thought it was time to cut into my Kraft Glassine papers yesterday, and make a ragged flower. So this is my little space this morning.
I very roughly cut shapes almost like circles (I say almost like because they could not possibly pass for the real thing!!). I then cut into them, scrunched them up, tried to colour them - didn't work so will have to practice that, then gave them a quick blast with my heat gun. I then stacked them and you can just about see the result. Actually, it looks ok.
There's nothing much else to see I'm afraid.
As with last week, I can only hope to get around to your desk, but one thing is for sure, I'll give it a good try.

Your flower looks really good.

Glad to hear your OH is gradually making a recovery, I hope he’s back to his old self very soon.

Can’t say I’ve ever worked with
Glassine paper but your flower looks great, so I think I may have to give it a go at some point.

Very glad to hear Mr T is doing better this week. My husband had a single hernia op about 4 years ago now, took a while to recover but once he did he was soon back to normal.
