Today’s project is a little gift I received from my sister Peggy while I was in the hospital last week. She used the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set and the coordinating Pocket Framelits.
Bermuda Bay : 2 pieces 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ — stamp pocket & stitching lines on both pieces — add words to only one pocket. Cut out with coordinating Pocket Framelit. Put Tear & Tape on all pocket flaps
Bermuda Bay: 1″ x 7 3/4″ — score at 2 1/4″, 3 3/4″ & 5 1/4″. Attach to one pocket — when completed, attach second pocket. Punch holes with 1/8″ handheld punch
Whisper White 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon: 8″ – poke each end to the inside of the pocket box to make a handle
Bermuda Bay: 2 pieces 7/8″ x 7/8″ – attach to inside of pocket box over the ribbon (just finishes off inside and holds ribbon in place)
Whisper White: 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ — stamp Flower Shop flower with Bermuda Bay ink — Punch out with Pansy Punch. Put Rhinestone in the center and attach the flower to the box with a dimensional.
My Health Update
I’m gaining strength, but honestly everything is exhausting and up until Thursday I’ve taken 2 naps each day. I’m no longer taking any pain medications so my mind is much clearer. Friday I walked 2.6 miles and I’m thrilled with that. Today my goal: 3 miles!
Many of you know Dave, he’s quite a character in public. I hear over and over again from friends and acquaintances, “Oh boy, Tina, are you ever lucky to have Dave” (insert sarcastic tone here). Well, the Dave that I see at home when no one else is around is so sweet and loving and unselfish, and comforting, I say with great conviction and love, that “yes, I am very lucky to have Dave.”
All of this may be way more information than you wanted to hear. But I’ve had so many inquiries, I thought this would be an easy way to get the news out. Most importantly though, I wanted you all to know how special you are to me and Dave. Your love and support of me and my business has allowed for so many fascinating adventures. I treasure you all.
