Birdie Heart

Hi, hope you are all being good and staying safe 
in your own homes!!

I have had a text this morning from my friend, Lorraine,
saying that her Dad, our neighbour, passed away at 10pm 
last night. 
I am so shocked, as she has lost both her parents in 1 week.

I am sorry I haven't been visiting your blogs, but I am 
having a problem with my knees. I have had one replacement 
about 7 years ago and the other one is now very painful. 
I am finding it hard to sit at my craft desk, 
computer desk or even my laptop, being too heavy on my knee..

I can take pain but not like this. I am even finding it difficult 
to walk around the house. It's the dreaded Osteo-arthritis. 
Also my fault for spending 5 hours working in the garden!!
It's been in pain for 11 days now and getting boring!!

This a paper mache heart I have had for a few years. 
So as I had some pretty tissue in my stash, I had a play 
with it on the heart. 

I cut out some of the bigger flowers and the birds, stuck them 
onto scraps of card and then used Pinflair Glue gel to 3D them. 
This was done a few weeks ago. 



Well I have to go now, as my knee feels like a red hot poker is
being twisted in my knee joint. An ice pack is called for now!! 

My neighbour came out of hospital and the following day, 
 he was taken back in. Now fighting for his life on a ventilator!

If that wasn't enough, one of my very old friends is very 
ill with cancer.
A lovely, very kind lady and will miss her very much. 
A friend for 29 years.

What a happy time we are having this year!! ....Not!!!

Big hugs,

So sorry to hear about your neighbours Carol, it is such a terrible time at the moment. Also sorry to hear about your knee. Don't do too much gardening! I can only manage about an hour at a time before my back starts aching. Your heart is beautiful by the way :) x

Carol, that is sad news of the neighbor but what a thoughtful friend you are!
And I love your decoupage heart- I don't think I could do that technique if I had to! But the result is just gorgeous! I hope you are staying safe! Hugs!
