21 June 2006
Work is BUSY as I'm about to take 2 weeks holiday and I'm getting brain strain trying to organise things for the time I'm gone....not much time for crafty stuff but I'd love to try and make myself somthing new to take away with me, even if it's just a cuff! Will definitely make my brother & his girlfriend a Happy New Home card as they are starting their move up to Norfolk today. Must think of a nice housewarming gift to make too....may have to wait until back from hols though, sorry Ben!
angry chicken has some really inspiring posts at the moment....it's making me want to drop everything and join in with the fun but too much of the day job to do this week. When I'm back though I'm really going to spend some quality time with my sewing machine!! Looking forward to sketching around Italy to keep the creative juices flowing and taking lots of photos along the way. This time next week we'll be arriving in Venice....can't wait!

My Dad is at home this weekend but I won't get to see him :( I did speak to him and he got his card from me through the post. He'll have to wait another day for his pressie which I'll be sending back with Mum tomorrow. I had this tiny photo of me & him fast asleep when I was little....very sweet (those lovely colours that you seem to only get in old photographs) so I did a bit of scanning and stitching to make him a one-off card.
Card making is probably one of my favourite creative hobbies and something I'll be selling through Etsy. I currently sell some at my lovely friend Abi's cafe but alas I've been very bad at supplying them of late :( but this is about to change as I'm determined to get back into the swing of things! I'm going to scan some of my favourites of late on my flickr page this week.
Planted pumpkins today:) and had a bit of a sort out with the runner bean and sweet pea canes so the veggie patch is looking smart. Could do with a little bit of rain now....but not too much please! We've got flowers showing on the beans now so looking forward to our first crop and being able to share some out too.
p.s. Something I forgot from Saturday....my Grandma G let me cut some arum lillies from her AMAZING crop. She has 3 huge groups of them by her pond and they are stunning....they have become quite a family legacy as she passed a clump on to my Mum for her garden a while back and now my Mum has passed on some to me. I only got 1 lily bloom this year in my plant but over the years there should be more and more to come :) so beautiful in their simplicity and watching them slowly uncurl is V exciting! I've got them on my desk so that I can enjoy them all week when I'm working :)
p.p.s. Remember the learning curve?...well I'm well and truly on it and I made a couple of errors with my Saturday including the title which seems to have disappeared (LEMON CUPCAKES FOR GRANDAD G) and a funny 3% thing which has appeared at the end of the post....hope this isn't my mark for effort!! I can't quite seem to work out how to add a photo in amongst paragraphs....so all are featuring up top for now!
