Christmas is on the way

Cupcake stack...applique on paper fabric and beaded with new beads and sequins I bought at the NEC quilt fair on Friday. The Christmas pudding fabric is a one I dyed and then printed with bubble wrap and black and brown acrylic paint.

Oh is too early to start thinking about Christmas and I really struggled with this design but I'm determined to get my Christmas cards made early this year and today I finished the design for the first one. This is just part of the design...I took the picture under tungsten light this evening with Tony's camera and I have NO idea how to use it! Ah well.....I shall post again some time when I have done more designs in the series. I thought I might do four along the same lines....but maybe this is too ambitious!

I'm pleased to say that Rosie looks a bit happier now and has perfected the three-legged run. She has decided that large purple antibiotics are not pleasant and has worked out how to eat her entire meal minus the tablets and so now I have had to resort to posting them straight down her throat. I paid a lot of money for them and she sure is going to take them!!!! Too soon to know if it is grass seed or a cyst on her pad. I'm hoping it will just go away....I'm missing our morning walks together watching the sun come up and planning my day ahead....and don't really want another bill to pay

I had a catasophe brother came over to see mum and I went through to join then with my plate of lunch in one hand, wearing slippers on Tony's advice as my foot is arthritic. As I stepped up into her house my foot slipped out of the slipper (now I know WHY they are called slippers!!!!) and I crashed against the door jam crushing my ribs in the process. Bother!!!!! Now I'm in agony......and the worst part is having cracked/broken ribs in the past I know that it will get more painful over the next couple of weeks.

I have taken the tea tray up to our room and loaded it wiith three different painkillers for the night. I'm already rattling. I suspect I could end up surfing the net at 3am if I can't sleep!
