October 3rd

Another month closer to christmas!! Where is the year going I just cannot keep up!
This past week has been a busy one, so much trailing back and forth to hospitals! Andrew was diagnosed in Dunedin hospital on Tuesday with Deep Vein Thrombosus. Lucky for us the clot stayed put! Wednesday we went to Christchurch to meet Aimee, David Laura, Tom and little Joel at the airport. That was the high light of our week! So nice to have Aimee home again - well we had her for two nights anyway, she is away to a friends for the night at the moment. LOL!!! I am pretty sure she does love us...really!!
Today we were back in Oamaru for Andrew's treatment, received a phone call from the Lab today, just after returning home informing us that the doctor wants Andrew back in tomorrow for more tests. Blast! Thought we might get Saturady off- no such luck!Unsure if thats a good sign or not, I asked but received a very hazzy answer that told me nothing at all!!
My work in the craft room this week has been null and void pretty much- just had no time. I did manage however to get the october Challenge uploaded to the Scrapbooking by Design gallery and create my layout to go with it. This is my first ever turn at putting up the challenge!! What a worry- no one might do it- no one might like it I am thinking! Pressure!! The ladies on the forum and the design team are very kind though and left me some lovely comments, very very sweet of them! Anyone at all out there looking for a challenge and wanting to make a needie ladie's day be sure to check it out !!

I am up to date, pretty much with my swaps and challenges, although I did miss the Bossy Scrapper on Sunday and was unable to squeeze in the September Challenge, which i'm sad about as they both looked like fun!
The perfect end to the week come this morning when my washing machine died- and the repair man said he could not get here untill Monday!! Come Monday he wont be able to find us for the great pile of washing we are going to be surrounded by!

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
