Where does the time go....

Hi all, wow where does the time go. A few things have happened since I last popped in here. DH is back from is sojourn to all things Speedway in Warnambool, Vic. He had a really exciting time and tells me this will be a permanent fixture on his calender from now on so will perhaps have to organise a crafty weekend in Kiama for this time next year, sounds good to me.
Went to see my surgeon today who performed my ankle surgery, to get the all clear. Also took along my back x-rays just to get some advice. he was very happy with my ankle and hopes I have warded off a ankle replacement for at least 10 more years, fingers crossed. He said my back was 'terrible' full of arthritas and has referred me on to another specialist. Will have a MRI and a visit with him to see how the best way to manage that for at least another 10 years as well. Anyway, for the moment the pain has stopped so I will just tread carefully for a while.

Have finished my ATC's for the Gold/Silver theme swap over @ LSBS. Here is a few pictures of my lot. Above is the little production line I had going. Once I had the design set, I was right. Below is the finished product. I was really
pleased with the end result but was a little nervous as I sent them off. But received some feedback that the 'standard' was
fine and now I am looking forward to receiving my 'other' ATC's from the swap.
Had some lovely news that my entry over at the ARTastic January challenge had won a random prize draw, so yeah!!! and also @ LSBS
my 'Trust' LO of my DS won its section in their January CC with a lovely shopping voucher to g with it so all round a lovely month for me.
I did get adventurous and I sent of an application to Paper Inklings DT call, but :( they didn't want me, they did send me a lovely 'no thank you' email so you never know, will try again sometime.
Working tomorrow as had today off and then off to Narellan to scrap with Michelle and Helen on Saturday, looking forward to that.
Hope you all have had a lovely 'scrappy' week and for those with kidlets starting school, hope it wasn't too traumatic for you all.
Will talk soon. Ciao
