Hello Friends..

Finally the day has come that I have my Knee Replacement Operation.  I go into hospital tomorrow morning and will be operated on before lunch...  May 30th.

I'm sorry I haven't been much of a blogger.  My pain levels have been so bad that I have been spending 80% of my day in bed.... and I have been like this for some time now which, as you can imagine, has limited my craft word.
I am so looking forward to being able to do my craft without the restrictions I've had.  Oh to be able to walk again without horrendous pain will be so good.  I can't wait to be able to walk with my husband.... holding his hand and in my other hand.. carrying my handbag.  Something that has been impossible since November last year when I started to use crutches to get around.

As soon as I am up and running... literally   I shall let you all know how I went.  Until then.. please keep me in your prayers.  I am so scared of this whole procedure but I know it is so needed.  While I am afraid.. I do cling to my Lord and know that He will be there, guiding the surgeons hands.

I love you all and thank you for not abandoning this slack blogger.      hugs.. Angie

And finally.....

Here are two special cards I made...

This is the card I made for my good friend, Bee's, birthday.  If you haven't looked at her blog.. oh my... you really should.  Bee is my partner in our Yahoo group, PENNY FLOWERS...  she's been a tower of strength to me for years now.  Her blog is on the side of my blog here... BAUKJE'S CARDS & CRAFTS.


Finally.... FOR NOW ONLY... a display I made for my most favourite coffee haunt... and the special lady there who make's the best coffee in town!
This is an A4 display (landscape) in an open frame.

And some more...

Hello everyone

Hello dear followers...

I looked at my blog via my phone the other day and realised AGAIN... how long it's been since I last wrote.
My health has been suffering even more of late.  My knee is so much worse and it's causing my back to hurt so much.  This is because of the crutches but given they're the only way I can walk.. it's a vicious circle.
Finally it's getting close that I will be having surgery.  I saw the Orthopedic Surgeon in November and he put me on the semi urgent list to have a full knee replacement. Normally that's up to a 3 month wait... unfortunately Christmas and the New Year holidays was in the middle of this.  I am now hoping I shall hear any day now that I will have a date for the surgery.  I would ask that you keep me in your prayers.

I've still been making cards but I had to admit that during the heatwaves we've been having I've been to drained to do much.  Here are some of the work I've done since I last posted.

Much love to you all and thank you all so much for being so dedicated in your following.  To those who wrote to me asking about PENNY FLOWERS eBook... I had all the emails in a folder so I could answer you all and explain why I hadn't been in touch.  Where that folder went?  I don't have a clue but I should still have your emails in my archives so I'll try and see if I can find you there.  I'm really sorry.

hugs... Angie
