is awake.....

...... when really I should be fast asleep.  So I thought I'd make the most of my "awakeness" by posting some pics for what I've been up to over the past week or so, not so much of the talking though

So firstly - 2 knitted phone covers for the son (and his mate) of the friend that I knitted a phone cover that was similar to the one I knitted for myself (definite rambling going on here now)

And now for 2 wedding cards I made - both for the same person to choose between and she decided she wanted them both.

Th images on this on are taken from the My Craft Studio CDs - Alfie and Violet.  Violet has blonde hair, the bride to be dos not, so I printed out a NSR (no stamp required) image, coloured in the head, and stuck it on to the body.  did the same with Alfie.

The next one

This is using the Vintage Pearl card making kit from Hunky Dory - I don't tend to be a kit person, but I was sold on it purely for this card design.  It's a triple twisted circle easel card

And finally - the two members of the family who are doing what I should be

Don't they look comfy - and so they should be, they are both, as I type this, in very slightly different positions, but still sprawled over my bed

Night all


  1. awww too cute!! Loving the triple easel card! I seen dempnstrations of these on Create and Craft and was tempted but I'm not much of a kit person either. Will give them a go sometime though coz they are gorgeous!! The phone covers are kool too, nice warm cozy feel from them....ok time for bed for me too! lol

Some stuff about the stuff in the blog


Very new at this blogging lark, so forgive me if I get a bit befuddled. User name is derived from my maiden name of George and the fact that by the time the Olympics are held in the UK in 2012, I will look as if I could compete. And not as a sumo wrestler.

For starters there is only one blog with contain my thoughts, but this might evolve into 3 or 4 when I work out what I'm doing.

In the main it will cover my slimming journey, my quilting exploits, my get fit and stay fit campaign, and my photography. Not forgetting my recent TrollBead obsession.

Should I ever get a lovelife you might get glimpses of that as well.
