Off For A Few Days Rest!

Evening All,
 
This is my last post for a bit. I am finally going into hospital at 07.15am tomorrow. I am going to have a few days of doing very little. I am taking some craft magazines, a book and a sketch pad and pencils.
 
I hope to get a bit of sketching done for rubber stamps. Can't tell you any more but watch this space!
 
I am hoping that after this op I will become a Bionic Woman!! I will at least set of metal detectors at the airports. Great fun!!
 
These are the 4 Garden Notebooks I have made for stock to sell at my charity markets.
 

All the images are coloured with Distress Inks, with a little sprinkle of Star Dust Stickles. The papers are from my stash.


All of the books have inside, a notebook that can be replaced when used up and a pen.


The closure tab is a piece of sticky back Velcro. The book on the left is my husband's favourite.




I would like to thank you all, for the lovely messages that you have sent me, wishing me well. They are much appreciated. I am not looking forward to the next few weeks but I know that by the summer, I will be much better.
 
As they say, 'No pain, No gain!'
 
I have organised a little corner in my sitting room, where I can sit for a bit, with my lap tray and do some crafting. I tried to work out if I could sit at my desk, but I have to have my knee higher than my waist, (if I knew where that was!!!) when I sit down. The problem then was, I couldn't get near enough to my desk.
 
Never mind I will find a way around it!
 
I would like to wish everybody at Lili Of The Valley, a great weekend for your 9th birthday. I will be sleeping for most of the day, but for the rest of you, tune into Facebook and join in the fun.
 
I am now off to bed, as I have to be up at 05.45!!Yuk!
 
Thanks for stopping by and leaving your wonderful messages.
 
Hugs,

Carol S.xx

Oooh Carole - I hope you manage to get your operation today and will quickly be on the road to recovery again. I know a few people who have had knee operations and it has really been a benefit for them, and I am sure it will be the same for you

Take care.

Hi Carol,

I hope by now you've had the operation and are starting on the road to recovery.
I also hope it's not been too painful for you.

Beautiful note books, they'll sell like hot cakes :)

Big hugs to you

Hi Carol
I hope you are recovering from your Operation and are feeling a bit better.
Can you help me. I have a Joy machine and cannot get the sandwich right to use M-Bossabilities folders. I see that in January you said you used it in your Joy machine. What sandwich did you use?
Love your blog.
