Not a Bad Effort

 I hope those of you who have kept checking my Blog every once in a while will be pleased to see this post.  It represents SO much for me I can't even begin to tell you.  Ten days ago I tried to stamp an image and couldn't control the stamp enough to get a clear, clean impression.  Since then things have begun to improve slowly. So last night I gave it another try and managed to get a few decent impressions.  Pushing my luck I then tried painting the image with DI colours.  Even though I do say so myself I think I made very passable job of it.  It took lots of concentration but I did it.  This morning I drew around it and then cut it out - with scissors!!!  Next challenge was to make it into a card and as you can see from  the picture I managed that too.  There have been times in the last 11 weeks when I thought I would NEVER craft again so this is massive for me.  I feel quite emotional about it as I sit here typing this.  Still a long way to go but long may the improvement continue.  Thanks to those of you who stopped by today 'just in case'.  I hope it was a nice surprise to find a new post after all this time.
PS  Please excuse any typos as my hands and fingers are sill very clumsy.

  1. Totally amazing my friend, I can well understand how emotional you will be over achieving this, You have raised a tear or two in my own eyes to see what you achieved today. Massive acommplishment and I love your new look today as well. I was just sitting in front of the computer thinking, shell I have a look and see if you had put any messages and whoa could not believe my eyes.

    Good luck tomorrow - going out now into the rain to walk Roc
