The Week That Was

It has been one of those weeks....not one that I could say I have enjoyed.
Walked out of night school last week to a non lit pavement, fell over after catching my foot in a square cut out in the pavement, then into a square cut out in the road behind my car.

I hit the edge of the square, face grazed, scratched glasses lens and luckily my Fitbit watch took the brunt of the fall on my wrist. Nothing broken, sprained and bruised. A new lens for my glasses was ordered, received the call to say that it had arrived, unfortunately the lady at the eye clinic mixed the numbers up on the frame order and the lens didn't arriving next week!!
Then to top it all off, I have had ANOTHER chest infection....
Haven't been able to attend rose garden for the last 2 weeks.

 Class of concertina books.
The cover is using a sheet of Korean Jammochi felted paper that I made at Winter School one year.
 From another Winter School class, with Jet James, I used the remaining Collography prints.

 Our last class we made a box to store our smaller bound books.
Next time I think I would make it with the books standing up.
The base needs to be covered.


  1. Why would someone cut a hope and then leave it that way??? Actually, I don't even need an excuse for tripping and messing up skin or glasses... my newest lenses are still on their first year. Take care.

  2. Hope you aren't too sore. Love your books and their covers. I agree, they would look great standing up.

  3. I hope the week ahead will be better.

  4. Falling over as an adult is horrible, it is such a long way down. Good news that you were not too badly hurt and you are on the mend.
    The box is a fitting end to an impressive ten week course.

  5. We don't bounce as well as we used to, do we?
    That concertina book is great. Using items you have made yourself makes it so more personal.

  6. Glad you made it to the last class. Hope your wrist is a lot better now. Have a great week leading up to Christmas.

  7. I'm sorry to hear of your accident and infection. It seems strange to me too that someone didn't put a safety cone where the street blocks were cut out. So fortunate nothing was broken!!!
