A busy time!

We have been rather busy over the last few weeks with one thing and another.  It may well become a little quieter on the blog front during the next few months as last week we bought a minibus to convert into a camper van and also ordered a couple of kayaks too, so lots to do and lots to think about and hopefully lots of fun coming up!

We have spent this weekend removing seats!

If anyone is interested these seats will be for sale very soon and are all in excellent condition.

You will be glad to know that Giraffe No. 2 has now been finished!

And here he is waiting to be packaged up for his journey to his new home.

In the top right hand corner of this picture you can just see a small pile of wedding invitations, another project that has been taking up my time recently!

And finally - wedding dress progress.  It is progressing rather slowly at the moment, just trying to get the skirt bit right.  I think I am on version 3 as we speak :) It's proving a bit of a challenge, but once this is sorted the rest will be a doddle!!!!!

I'm afraid I haven't been doing much blog hopping recently, with so many deadlines to meet I've just been concentrating on the most necessary project before moving on to the next.  This week I'll try to pop over to Handmade Monday and visit a few more of you if I can.

Thanks for reading
Have a good week!

Birthday Weekend

Just a quick post from me this week as very little in the way of crafting to show you.

Wedding Dress Project is progressing nicely, skirt now attached, just needs a little tweeking :)

Those of you who follow me on fb will already know I am making a stripey crochet giraffe for a little girls 2nd birthday.  So far I have completed 2 arms and 2 legs!!

We have been up to our daughter's this weekend together with our eldest daughter for my birthday treat.  We had a wonderful meal in an Indian Restaurant Bhoomi.

Here is my starter of mushrooms - so tasty

Salmon for mains with snow peas, asparagus and various other green veg. Just delicious.  And an amazing chocolate moose for desert.

We rounded off the weekend with a stroll around a very pretty village and cake and coffee in a pretty little cafe.  Look at the cakes we chose.  They were delicious

Gluten free fig cake
Toffee slice

Fruit scone with jam and cream

It looks like all I've done this weekend is eat but I can assure you it wasn't really like that :) 

Thank you for reading, hopefully I shall have more to show you next week.  
See you over at Handmade Monday
