Thanks so much for all the kind comments on my last post and your affirmations that my blog was not boring. I'm hoping that a 'new look' and a more newsy post will have you all riveted.
After a glum start the week picked up when on Tuesday night I went to a gig with my mate Sue. Here's me arsing about before I went, trying to get my self-timer gizmo to work. (I sadly failed)
The pub was heaving when we arrived and it wasn't long before I was asked to dance by an octogenarian who told me that I was 'a right old rocker' Hmmm, less of the 'old' thank you.
Later in the week I attended a nearby Knit & Natter session to fine tune my crochet technique which was, shall we just say... improvised. The regular ladies were very welcoming and soon my crochet crimes were a thing of the past. I was amazed by the work of these very accomplished ladies and although I cannot ever hope to achieve their standard I am enjoying making my granny squares which I hope will be a bedcover eventually.
I had a chazzin success yesterday, whilst over in Petworth with NM we went to Sue Ryder and found this fab old suitcase for the princely sum of £2.95! Not for the hall but perfect for housing all my crap, under the bed.
On the way home we made a quick stop at another village chazza and I came away this unused linen tea towel, which I think is a modern one with a retro design.
Also this weekend I managed to squeeze in some crafting and last night came up with a card to enter in
Less Is More's 2nd Birthday Challenge !
the theme is Kraft & Kreme, I'm also linking to CAS-ual Friday's 'Love LETTERS' challenge.
Unusually for me there's no stamping on this one. the kraft panel was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder (which for the first time ever was achieved without getting a line where the join is, more by luck than good judgement I have to say) The flower and leaves are die-cut.
That's all from me, enjoy what's left of the weekend.
