My new,boot,DT time, an amazing gift and coffee and cream

Hi guys,
well as you know I had my boot fitted on Friday,had no idea it would be as big as it is,yikes its not heavy just awkward,and it kinder,makes the inside of my leg sore,were the metal is. So i have adapted some foam to go inside,were the metal is. I have an allen Key were I have to,keep the presssure up,thought you may like to see it,
This is the side,were I have to keep the pressure,and its wear,those metal pieces,are,which are on the other side,that rub against my leg.
Anyway,there I was feeling sorry for myself,trying to get the Houswork,done wondering if I would ever finish when the postman,came and when I opened,the parcel in it was the most amazing thoughtful gift my my dear sweet friend,Cindy,over at whimsical,musings,oh she has had,her work published,and to my joy she sent this book to me. I was totally overwhelmed,at her generosity,and her great kindness,Cindy hun honest,you could not have given me a greater,more thoughtful gift so bless your heart hun,I will treasure this always.
Here are just few amazing pictures of her book.




Isnt,this just brilliant,once again hun thank you so much,there are just not enough words to describe how I felt when this arrived.
Okay now over to Creative inspirations,this week,and the theme is templates,choosen,by Autumn I have made this gift set,using the,briliant templates,and images from  our sponsers,this week,The cutting cafe

Hope you foot feels better soon, looks like you should be resting (crafting) more than housework hun! cards are stunning!!! xxx

Fliss said...

Hi Cheryl, hope your boot helps heal your foot problem. I have seen one of these before as my sister in law had one just over a year ago when she fell down some steps and broke her ankle and as Margreet says it is like a giant ski boot.

Your artwork is really gorgeous and don't know how you do it (and the dreaded H) with all your troubles. The book from Cindy is a stunner too - lucky you.

Hope you have a good Sunday and that you've got the sunny weather we have here.
Hugs, Fliss xxx

Cindy Adkins said...

Dear Cheryl,
Oh gosh, and to think that the book was delayed in coming there--and now it appears that it arrived at just the right time. It's as if God knew this was all going to be happening, so I know that He is watching over you...Oh girl, I can't believe that latest style in leg wear over in the U.K. right now!!! I hope that you will be able to change styles soon and be all healed up as soon as possible.

And I love what you created--I can't believe you had the presence of mind to craft--you are a true artist!!!
Love and hugs,
Cindy

Terry said...

I sure hope that boot helps you to heal quickly. It does look quite huge!! Cindy is a sweeheart and the book is wonderful! Now your creations are so fabulous and I always love your projects! Take care!
