Ooops, this year is whizzing by..

I have been really busy lately so I thought I would share some of the things I have been up to since my last post in January????  This is the time of year where I catch up with my accounts, de-cluttering & a lot of hospital appointments with Philip - all done now!!

There has been some crafting happening, last month I held my first class of the year the ladies all took home a beautiful spring wreath to decorate their homes.

I have almost finished preparing the samples & kits for my next class later this month, a little sneak peak of the pretty colours we will be using.

I have had a few cards commissioned to celebrate those big milestone birthdays - 30th 40th 50th & today I'm starting on a 60th & a wedding card.

I have also completed a pretty crochet blanket for my sister. I haven't done any knitting or crochet for quite a while & I have really enjoyed making something  different, this is quite a large blanket & I finished it in around 3 weeks.

After 8 months of searching finally Darran found the "car" he was looking for, although much bigger than anything I have driven before I do LOVE it!!  So there has been a lot of cleaning & polishing going on as it seems to have been a little un-loved by it's previous owners?! Hopefully we will be off to the beach on Sunday morning to enjoy some of this nice weather as Darran has one of those weeks where he isn't home very much.

The lovely spring weather has been nice to make a start clearing the garden & generally tidying up outside - I love iris's & found these amongst some little snowdrops that have started to spread out nicely.

Time to get on with those commissioned card and plan some Easter makes for Lucy & Philip's friends.
