mmmmmmm................... waffle

Good Morning every one, I am up bright and early today, been awake since 5. Lots of things on my mind.
I am making 40 or so cards for Margaret's card group, to send out to each member, nearly finished then. I like my new invented technique. Monocromatic sayings stamped all over each card. I really enjoyed doing these. With my chalk inks, why use anything else. i have to say they are my favorite inks. I have been collecting saying stamps for ages now, still looking for more.
Karen is getting married tomorrow, Chantelle's mum, the twins will be in purple and Karen in cream. I am doing the flowers for them all. My laundry smells like a florist atm. Should be a great day, if the weather holds out for us. So far the forecast is pretty good. The sun is shining here but bitterly cold close to the antartica end of the world.
My leg is sort of doing OK. It has opened up on my shin, and started to bleed a bit, the gash is very deep, I am going to have a beaut scar.
No more news for today, will catch up with some pictures on Sunday of all the things I have been doing.
So have a great day and keep smiling. Julie

Look away if you are a bit queezy.

Hi there,
Below are the pictures my son has been logging of my leg. I am sure he will take more pics tomorrow. The bruising starts at my thigh and goes down to my toes, and the swelling and fluid is so painful at times, I can hardly work. Good news no broken bones, just the hematoma on my shin.
Apart from that I have been fine, been doing a lot of craft work, decorated some boxes, made a small book I will do some pics for you to see.
have a good evening and thanks for looking.

All my love Julie

My leg day 5

Horse dramas

Hi there, I have been so slack I am not a very good blogger am I.
here is an up date on what has happened, 2 weeks ago i was kicked by my horse Tess.She was feeling unwell, so I did what the vet would have done and checked her out, i felt her stomach and she had a lump under there, and whacko, smacko, she kicked me in the thigh then ran her hoof down the front of my shin. here are some pics, watch out they are a bit gorey.
What appears to be a cut on my shin, has not opened, that was how it happened. It is the size of a cricket ball cut in half and the other half feels like it is inside my leg. 2 weeks later the color is still the same.
Hematoma is what the doctor told me i had.
Thanks for looking and I will keep you all updated I promise. Julie
