What a day!!!!
I've had an argument with EDF over the gas bill for the whole town, as it can't possibly be for just my house. I've meet my neighbour for the first time - we only moved in, in September. The local nursery delivered my cherry tree and hubby's apple tree. Then I measured a whole house for new blinds and curtains, that is being gutted after smoke damage from a fire. Then to top it all, I came home and found 3 rolls of curtain fabric had been dumped on my driveway with no explanatory notes !!!!!
Other than that, I have made my first card sample for my children's class at In 2 Crafting next week.
I have paper pieced the Penny Black stamp, the rain, but have removed her legs and replaced them with string so they swing and dangle. I'm hoping the bright colours will appeal to little girls - my two boys said it was "pink and yukky!!"
Now for the challenges I'm entering;
Pollycraft - pink and brown & yellow or green
Crafty Pad - some colours of the rainbow
Critter Sketch -3 main colours
Paperplay - shiny happy people
Crafty Creations - paper piecing
Thanks for looking, and I hope you like ;o)
