Monday TicTacToe Challenge
Pinch,Punch first of the month, can anyone actually believe that we are in October!!!!
That weekend just flew by! We got quite a bit done, which is always a good feeling I think, although I will be paying for it today.
We dropped the girls off at work and then went to the allotment, I took my laptop and was going to sit and do some shopping/research etc, but I just can't sit there and let Paul work, I have to do something even if it is a bit of light weeding. Paul dug over a plot that we had previously grown potatoes on, we had loads 'self seed' this year so we decided to see what they were like, Paul dug and I sorted through and pulled them out, it's quite satisfying when you gather your own crops I think, anyway we ended up with a huge crop of potatoes, we don't quite remember what variety they were though so we will have to test them out this week.
We came home and Paul gave the front lawn its last cut and we pruned back some bushes, he managed to totally fill his new composter!
The time just flew by, so we ended up having a late dinner, Sophie had requested that we had Roast Beef and Yorkshire puddings, so that Lewis could try it, apparently he has always thought he didn't like it!! I will let you know the verdict later.
I went for a TicTacToe for this weeks challenge as we have had some quite different challenges lately. I think that this is quite a good TicTacToe grid, as it has something for birthdays and Christmas cards, meaning that you can do the two card Challenge too. I will let you your imagination for the 'Shine' option, it could be anything from Mirror card to Gilding Flakes!
My mind is already buzzing with ideas, I hope that yours is too.
I can't wait to see what you all come up with.
I am going to be doing a bit of re-arranging in my Craft Room today, it just isn't working as it is.
I will then be having a go at some of the background techniques that you lovely ladies inspired me with in last weeks challenge.
I have prepared Sue to come ready to get messy on Wednesday too, so watch this space!!
(That's if I can actually get out of bed this morning)! haha
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
