Today has been a bit of a topsy-turvy day. I started coming down with the boys' bug on Friday and it really hit me today, so after taking both boys to Ben's swimming lesson (I usually take Ben while T and Jamie have some quality time, but T's been on a sailing course this weekend) I had to call in my parents for help while I went to bed with a pounding headache and a seemingly never-ending cough. They turned up with the ingredients for Sunday roast dinner that they had planned to cook for themselves at home, bless 'em, and they and the boys had fun playing in the garden!
So, having had a nap this afternoon and having got rid of the headache (not the cough or sore throat though :( ) I now can't get to sleep so thought that I'd make good use of my time by listing the next set of new designs on etsy! If you read this BTW post a couple of weeks ago you may recognise these hearts as I've been working on them for a few weeks now, perfecting them. They come in the same three embossed patterns as the designs I listed yesterday. Like the paisley/leaf shapes they can be curved with your fingers or nylon jaw pliers, as I've done in the bracelet at the top of this post. And if you come back on Tuesday, the bracelet instructions will be my Tutorial Tuesday post. It's been too long since I wrote a tutorial for the blog!
