Where'd the week go....

Firstly, an apology for my absence. Life has been getting in the way of blogging, and 365ing for that matter. I've been the family chauffeur recently as Chris is currently on crutches. So a few days of him working from home (which stops me getting to the computer...and guilt that I'm not doing household duties if I use the laptop - which died last night btw), and a few days taking him to work, the doctors or physio. Don't get me wrong, I can see how much pain he is in and I'd rather do that than have him make his injury worse. He's badly pulled a tendon in his foot, and as chief ironer in this house it means that it's not being done unless I do it. I hate ironing. Enough said I think - same t-shirt again then....

I have managed to spend some time painting some more canvas though for another project, and making these little flowers from some scraps of patterned paper I have in a bag at the side of my desk. I've done a quick tutorial for them over on The Mill Pond, the new Indigo Mill blog. Feel free to pop over and take a look.
You'll also notice that I have added a list of fellow DT'ers to my side bar. Take a wander around them, these ladies produce some lovely work. I feel a little shocked that I was chosen when I look at them. Maybe Steph will realise and change her mind. LOL.

Well, I need to be getting on with "stuff" as we're on holiday next week and I have a ton of things to sort out between now and then. Where does the time go?!

Those flowers are fabulous! I'm off now to check out your tutorial, and hope that they are not too difficult to make. If I can do it, I will be making some tomorrow. I have just the layout sitting on my desk that was needing 'something'. I also have a box full of paper scraps which need using up, so this could well have come at just the perfect time!

Oh poor old Chris - this injury is taking a while to get better isn't it. Hope your laptop can be revived!! I love these flowers - clever girl. I have bookmarked the tutorial and will have a look at it when I have finished all my blog catch ups.
