Quick, because I don't have much to report at all. I only managed to make another 7 1/2 granny squares yesterday, and then I spent most of the night trying to sleep in the armchair downstairs, because Hector had a very upset stomach and needed his mummy to look after him ( and let him out in the garden ).
He was feeling much better this morning and the dreadful rumbling and gurgling and cramping had stopped, so we took them both to the Firehills for a walk. In the freezing cold sleet and rain. Nuts, eh? But they get so bored indoors, and Poppy gets very argumentative and talks back at you when you tell her off ( which is hilarious really ). I got muddy, soggy and wet, but enjoyed it anyway. Somehow even in the nastiest weather the doggies make us smile with their antics.
So I haven't really done any crafting today, I seem to do most of mine in the evenings. But I did iron the aged papers for the Alter It! giveaway. I love using them to print on, it saves so much on printing inks when you are printing vintage stuff. Just remove the beige/light brown old paper colour background in photoshop and print it on beige/light brown tea and coffee stained paper instead.
Oh, and another little tip ( which you probably know anyway so just ignore it ). The paper won't be very flat after it has dried, so I iron it between two sheets of white tissue paper, on a very high setting with full steam. Works really well.
Now I am off to pick up DS No. 1 and accompany him to the solicitors, to give him moral support, lol. Buying your first place is scary.
