Well I don't know where the summer has gone to, but it's not here. I've had a busy week though.
My son had to go and see the consultant at the hospital after he developed a lump on his arm. This is Adam who had a motorbike accident last year, and smashed up his arm so badly that he had to have a plate and screws put in. Well he had it taken out in March this year, 11 months after the accident, when his bones started to heal at long last.
Anyway they did a couple of x-rays and it now it appears that the fracture had slipped and the bones are overlapping. Although the surgeon tested the bone whilst Adam was in theatre and thought it was strong enough, it now appears that it actually wasn't. Anyway the upshot is that they are going to take him to theatre again, to put in another smaller plate and give him a bone graft too. He was really upset and tearful, despite being 23 years old. Good job I was there to 'hold his hand' so to speak. They're not doing it until after his brothers wedding though, but in the meantime he has to wear a removable cast so it doesn't get any worse. Poor lad he's gutted.
Anyway on to craftiness. Have you seen the new magazine Make Jewellery out. Well I bought issues one, two and three which came out this week. I've been thinking of getting into jewellery making for some time now, and want to do a couple of courses when my redundancy comes through. Well I'm so inspired after reading this magazine, I'm definately going to do it. I have a few beads around that I use for crafting, but have never actually really made anything with them. Until now that is.Now it's not that spectacular at the moment as my supplies are very limited, but I made some phone charms and a wine charm that I thought you might like to see. So now I'm going to be looking for more beads and have a little play. It's so quick and easy. I shall be adding some links to my side bar under Jewellery is anyone is interested so keep tuning in. Thats all for now. See you soon.
