Handmade Monday - again.

Have not prepared anything exciting this week so thought I would show you my draught excluder. Boring I here you say, too right but.........
My other half is having treatment for Cancer and feels every little draught, knows every time I leave a door open etc.,.  We have a real fire type gas fire in the lounge and he complains that the wind comes down the chimney, sigh, there is but certainly not much,  so I purchased a small mesh fire guard and covered it - works a treat, no more moans.


The wooden items in the grate are chainsaw carvings done by my eldest son many, many years ago and the dog is Rosie age 14 and a bit.
To see some far more exciting items pop along to 1stuniquegifts - well worth a look.

  3. Looks like a really good solution though Rosie dose'nt look too happy. Hope your OH's treatment is going okay and wish him well. I'm hoping my rings will be easy to repair as they are all special ones. Won't know for 2 weeks how long I will be in plaster for as my arm is too swollen for the x-ray to show any breaks.
    Will be using my calendar on my desk next year.
    Hugs Mrs A.

  5. Hope you're all keeping warm now - Rosie would rather have the fire on! Our collies lie so close that their noses burn, given the chance!

  7. A great idea, Carol, a picture of a log fire on the the draught excluder would be great.

  8. Well done on the excluder and well done to your son for doing chainsaw art, I attempted it and it's very difficult. I've been a few times to the Chainsaw Show at Sandringham.
    Best wishes to you and your husband.
