Good Morning Ladies,
What a glorious day yesterday turned out to be, the sun was so warm, I went and sat at the allotment with Paul for a while in the afternoon and the sun beating down on the little sheltered area we have behind our Polytunnel made me feel like I was somewhere in the 'Med', well except for the pigeons coo'ing instead of Seagulls, Oh and Paul hollering everytime those pesky nettles made contact with the exposed areas of skin, usually the underside of your arm as you uproot them. We were discussing the satisfaction of pulling a nettle and getting the great long root out with it! We're simple folk and easily pleased!!!
Everything is starting to spring into life after the few showers we had, the strawberry patch is looking it's best ever, Paul is going to cover them with netting tomorrow so that we might get a few rather than the birds eating them all! Raspberry canes seem to be shooting up all over the place too, we have more outside of the fruitcage than we do inside. We need to find a use for the large numbers of Blackcurrants and Gooseberries that we have too, it's something we aren't so keen on, I remember my mum making a gooseberry crumble when I was a child, it still makes me shudder today!! Rhubarb, that's are other run away success, we have loads of it, Sue would you like Paul to pick you some today??
Anyway onto the crafty stuff, I felt guilty that so many of you found the Christmas Challenge too much of a Challenge yesterday, so for those of you that would prefer it I have chosen a Sketch for you to follow. I will share both lots of Challenge cards in two categories on Sunday. If any of you are feeling super adventurous why not try both?!
As long as you are all happy, I am happy!!
Hoping to see my crafty chum today, seems like months since we last crafted together.
Pat I hope all goes well at the hospital today XXX
Sending love and hugs to all of you lovely ladies,
