Apologies for being so late with my post today, I started typing it last night ready to schedule as we had a busy day planned today but I fell asleep typing & that was the end of that!
It's been such a beautiful weekend weather wise here so I've been busy in the front garden doing lots of pruning & weeding, hubby even joined me out there & cut the grass so it's just the fence to paint & it will all be spruced up again, mind you that old saying "a garden is never finished" is so true as there is always jobs needing doing.
My mission this week is to learn how to do some basic crochet! I've never managed to knit or crochet anything so I am aiming for just a simple square, or something squarish will do me lol.
Today is new challenge day at
& this fortnight we are playing
We have a new addition in our family, I've a beautiful new great-niece called Evie who should have arrived a couple of weeks ago but this little maid was in no rush & kept us all waiting, she's a worse time keeper than me lol. I made my card on Thursday when Dionne was in labour & I was waiting for news & wanted to put Evie's name & Date Of Birth on it so I made a temporary back for the clay frame and just stamped Evie's name on it & used blue tack to temporarily stick it onto my card until the little lady made her grand entrance & I knew which date to put on it. Thankfully much to everyone's relief especially poor Dionne's Evie obliged & joined us safe and well on Friday morning so I was able to finish my card off properly.
