Afternoon,everyone hope you are all well.  Well I did as I was told,and went to the doctors she gave me some strong anti-biotics,and I also had to have my face cut just a small cut to release all the stuff that was in there boy it was some infection. So after that I went to the hospital to get my leg seen to finally and at last something is being done,I have been fitted with some things for my shoes,and a metal thing that kinder goes accros my foot.  I have sprained my tendon,on the side of my foot and torn the one that goes underneath hence the pain.  I have to go back in 3 weeks,but bad news is that I do have to have my knee operated on again as that is really bad and he told me it needs to be done.
Oh he was such a dish of a doctor I usually get the old farts,miserable too but oh he was adorable just my luck as I go in with a bloody patch on my eye,and walking with a stick,ha ha sods law I tell you.
Still hopefully when I see him in 3 weeks,the patch will defintaltey be off,and hopefully he will be able to tell me that I do not have to use the stick anymore.
Okay enough of me rambling on over at the PIXIE COTTAGE this week,again we have a wonderful sketch,from dear Pam who is leaving us due to health problems,so all the best hun been fab working with you. The theme we have for you this week is,back to school so would love to see what you guys come up with the image I have used this week is Cassie by Di Carubia.
I have put,show and tell on my card remember when you took in one of your toys to school,to show everyone then tell them why it was your favourite toy.
I have also made this tag,for the lovely lindas,challenge of curiositys,and we are on page 36 this week realy loved this technique sorry cant share it with you but will defintaley be doing this again. I have used Tims,stamps,metal flower,and some other bits and bobs I added,too. This week its week 11 blended batik
Now for a couple more pictures,will post some more another day.

he he I look a right idiot on these still hope it gives you a laugh at the old biddy.
I am also posting my new shelf I put up last week,as need some more for my stash,so if you would like to see more of wonderful posts,please pop over to the lovely Julia's blog HERE.

Cheryl, both your pieces are great! I LOVE what you did with the blended batik challenge! That collage stamp worked beautifully for this technique, and you did a brilliant job turning into a very cool multi-media work of art. The little metal charms and clothespin are so fun, and the glass pebble with the bird image ties it all together so well!

I don't think you look like a biddy in the photos, I think you look like a celebrity. Great shots.

Sorry I'm late getting here this week. I had a required tutorial to post on Thursday and had trouble getting back to the WOYWW blogs. I'm glad those shelves are sturdy. They are sure holding a lot of lovely goodies.

Have a great weekend.
