Hello!! At last... I am back in blogland. Sorry I have been missing for so long. I had my tooth out and all went well with the extraction... but I developed dry socket and infection which was very painful... so I had to go back to the dental hospital a few times for treatment. I'm ok now though... the gum is gradually healing. We have also been having a few jobs done on the house... we had a new boiler fitted last week and my daughter is helping us with some major clear outs... can't believe the stuff we are finding. Lots of things are going to the Charity Shops :-)
I completely lost my crafting mojo... so bought a couple of the Folk It Kits and watched the DVD's over a few times. Then had a go and love doing them.
So these hearts are designs from the Level 1 Starter Kit. You get three patterns and so I bought some extra MDF Hearts from their shop so that I could have a go at all of them. The red and white one was the first one that I did and the hearts are a bit wonky... but I got a bit better with practice. I like the black one best of all.
I wanted to put something in the middle of the blue one, so printed out a sentiment in reverse and used transfer paper to mark out the letters. Then painted them with thin paintbrush... but found it SO difficult keeping a steady hand... and not sure if I could do it again!!
You get some Glamour Dust in the kit and so I added some to the green areas which looks quite pretty. I've added my own ribbon to two of the hearts but you get some twine for your heart in with the kit.
Gonna do some more of these with different colour combos and see how they look. I find them very relaxing to do.
Can't believe we will be into August next week... my darling daughter graduated yesterday... and she is now officially a Doctor of Philosophy!! she has worked very hard for it and has been through some difficult times... I'm SO proud of her!!! We went out to lunch in the afternoon to celebrate which was lovely.
On August 5th...The Great British Bake Off will be back!! Yay... and Who Do You Think You Are should be on soon too... can't wait for them both.
Hope you are all doing ok and enjoying the weekend! I'm so glad to be back in blogland as I have missed you all !!
Love and Hugs
