Things with Wings at MAWTT

Good morning and welcome. I hope you are all enjoying the fine weather.  I have been leaving my daily walk until the evening because it has just been too hot to set a good pace and I don't like gentle strolling unless there is a reason for that.  If I'm exercising I need to set a decent pace to raise my heart rate. I've actually lost 10 pounds so I will come out of lock down fitter than I went in.

I haven't been blogging much at all because I have been so busy making cards and little gifts for our WI members since we are unable to meet. I have just completed 50 cards and gift bags which I will show in a couple of days. It was quite a marathon. Next month will be easier because I have decided to just make a bookmark for them all.

We have a new challenge at MAWTT and that is to show Things with Wings. There is quite a wide choice there but I decided to go with a bird.

My Card

I am making a handful of cards for my sister so that she will have a few in hand. Two of her friends have died recently and others are struggling and she is not able to go and search out nice cards.  The local newsagent is the only place she can get to presently and that is obviously quite limited.  I have made it flat for posting so she does not have to pay extra postage.  One I have two or three ready I'll post then off to her because she is in Co Durham.

Why not pop over to the blog and check out what my team mates have come up with for thois challenge?

Anyway,  that's it for me today. Take care.

Hi Christine,
I love your card and that image is so pretty and very sweet.
Love the gorgeous colours used too.
My you have been busy can't wait to see them.
Lovely that you can take walks where you live and not bump into anyone.
Sound wonderful.
I walk around the house quite a few times counted the steps and it's quite a few, but I do have to use my walking stick.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
