Good Morning Ladies.
Welcome to the weekend and its a long one!! yay!! I hope you get lots of time to craft and get out in the sunshine (fingers crossed)! We (well Paul really) has made great progress with our allotment,
we have managed to get some, French Beans, Borlotti beans and Peas and sweetcorn grown and set out in the ground, I have some Cauliflowers growing, along with Spring Cabbage and Kale, in the Polytunnel we have tomatoes x 5, some novelty ones this time, one is a tomato that tastes like Melon, (hmmm) we will see, they were reduced in the garden centre so Paul decided it would be fun, we also have a cucumber, various leaf salads, radishes, Pak Choi, peppers, chillies, aubergine, I have also sewn a good few trays of Sweet Peas (as I love them), and Marigolds as they are a good companion plant for keeping bugs off of your crops. We have some fruit bushes too, Raspberries, Blackcurrants, Gooseberries, strawberries and lots of Rhubarb!
I do the seed sowing and Paul does pretty much everything else, he loves it though and so do I, its so peaceful up there, it feels like you are a million miles away from anywhere!
Do any of you grow your own food?
Now onto today's amazing selection of crafts........
Christina (Janet's Daughter), ladies I was so delighted when Janet sent me the updated photo of the finished Mr Peacock and placed in his new home in Christina's Courtyard Garden, Oh my goodness Christina, he is so Majestic, I love him, he must be worth an absolute fortune, although I know you wouldn't part with him, as I said when I saw your Winter Goddess, I could see him standing in the entrance of our very expensive local Garden Centre in Burford, they have similar sculptures that are priced in the thousands! I hope that you can see him from your windows, as I am sure he would bring a smile to your face every time you looked out! Thank you so much for sharing your Sculptures with us Christina, I cannot wait to see your next project xxx
Lynda, you really have got the but for Mixed Media haven't you, you have done more MDF Altering than I have, this is another of your fabulous tags, I love the colours you have used in this tag, its very vintage, where do you buy all of your little metal charms from Lynda? they are fantastic and you have used such a variety, your vintage image is so beautiful and I love how you have decorated the frame to match the background colour. I so wanted to get my hands on that pink lace that you have used but I wasn't fast enough, maybe next time! Thank you so much for allowing me to share your latest project Lynda, keep them coming please. xxx
Janet, you have created another one of your beautiful Altered Boxes, so pretty with the white and cream, it would make a lovely Wedding Keepsake box, have you decided what you are going to use it for? maybe for some of your laces or trims?! You have used some beautiful lace on this box with some pretty Appliques in the corners of the box, with some pretty pearl floral trim and that beautiful resin lady in the centre, all of the elements work so well together, you must be so thrilled,
I hope I don't get the blame when you and Lynda and Cheryl have no money left, as this is a very addictive hobby, it works so well along side card making too. Thank you for sharing your latest project Janet, I am very much looking forward to seeing your Lace book xxx
Thank you all for popping in today ladies, have a lovely weekend.
Love and Hugs
