But I promise I have also been busy crafting too - well, how else would I keep my sanity.....
I was pleased to finish a crochet baby blanket and I'm loving the mix of blue and sage shades, mixed with some silver grey and soft parchment colours
It measures approximately 42" x 28" or in metric, 106cm x 72cm! And I love the blues with the soft ripple pattern
I'm quite pleased with it and I think it makes a very cute baby boy blanket!
And of course I've still been busy with the crocheted Knitted Knockers! It's been very rewarding to be able to do something I really enjoy and know that it's going to help bring some comfort to another woman somewhere - and I love the line on the registered charity name "Made with Love, Filled with Hope". If you're not sure what I'm wittering on about (nothing new there!) please take a look at their website and spread the word! Knitted Knockers UK
But in the last few days I've also enjoyed doing a bit of colouring again - and am going to have a card-making session. I've been digging out and using some of my older stamps and I'm determined not to buy any more stamps until I've made good use of the ones I've got! (How many times do crafters say that to themselves?)
What does your craft desk look like? And how do you prefer to work? These days I tend to pick the stamp first, then the papers and then colour the image to match - but just occasionally I'll colour the image first (and then have a root and scrabble through all the paper stash to try to find matching papers!).
A couple of oh-so-cute LOTV stamps and then one of my old favourites, a Sarah Kay stamp
And one bit of good news on the home front is that our youngest Jack passed his driving test 2 weeks ago - first time! So a proud mummy moment for me - even though we've not seen much of him since lol! He's definitely enjoying his new-found freedom of mobility and even gives me a lift to work in a morning (a bit of a strange reversal when your child takes you to school...).
So apologies for the absence and then the rather long, rambling post - but yes, I have been busy!
But, I will try to get time to finish these cards off - and have a browse around Blogland and catch up with what everyone has been doing!
Back soon (hopefully!)
