A post at last....

Posting  just hasn't been happening here of late but I think I'm back to it now.
Firstly my blog book arrived last week, heavens knows why its exciting but it is, I'm getting quite a collection .... its amazing how time has flown since I began, it might even be a time for my first giveaway I think..... I'll be back with more news on that later so keep watching this space.



Scrap booking fever has hit here as well, Corinne is in her pondering pose thinking " what will I do now" she is working on a surprise for her partner... Kenny's .... mother which is such a lovely idea as his parents live in Japan and have missed so much of his years while he did his education here in Australia.



                          I have been working on secret sewing so I haven't got a lot to show.
Our FIS online group are putting together some sewing packs for sewers that have lost everything in the Tassie fires..... I guess it doesn't seem a lot but it might bring a smile to a few faces and for them to know that people do care.



I have finished my gifts for the Heart swap so they will be in the post on Tuesday, keep your eye on the postie ...........   you didn't really think I would tell you who it is did you ?
Thank you Cheryll for organising this lovely swap.


I've had a little hiccup too, I tripped over a car cover that was sitting on the front porch and I think I have broken my toe and its quite swollen further up my foot  ..... funny it's more painful than it looks .... I can't get any shoes or even a thong on so I'm hopping around  but mostly sitting as the pain stops when I have it elevated so naturally that means I can get a lot of hand sewing done.


 Well I'm off now to sit with the foot in the air and back to a bit more stitching.

Susan said...

Ouch! that does look sore, but as you say a good excuse to sit & sew. Hopefully its better enough soon to put at least a thng on your foot (as opposed to those other "thongs") and get out with your friends - but still rest at home of course...

Leanne said...

Lots of lovely projects Helen, sorry to read about your toe, it looks so sore.

Wow what a good looking foot - shame about the leg. LOL Nice gifts you have made. I am sure they will be treasured by their receiver.

Oh poor toes... Hope the ouch goes away soon. You have been busy...lovely sewing set.

I broke two toes last year and there is very little than you can do other than wait for them to heal. Try and keep off your feet as much as possible. I also found anti-inflamatories helped

That looks rather like my toe was earlier this month - though it was the next toe that suffered. I had to keep it elevated and iced as much as I could. I can now wear some shoes again but it still hurts sometimes. Take the time to enjoy your hand stitching.
