Last Day of Freedom!

Yes, its the last day of term! I am out for my Christmas lunch with Craft Club today. I also have to get the tree up. And the kitchen cleaned. And the laundry done. And go to the library. And I am sure there is a whole load of other stuff!

Mark went up in the attic last night ant the decorations down. He also got me down two boxes for photos in frames. I am going to put them in albums and get rid of the frames as we just don't have the wall space here. I think there is still another box up there as some of my photos are missing.

Benjamin won a colouring competition at a local estate agents. We went there last night for a presentation of the prizes. He had a lovely sports bag and art set which were presented by a local celeb boxer called Dave. I can't remember his name but Mark says he was really good in his day. Of course, he is older now and retired but he does a lot for the local youngsters.

And, of course, I have been crocheting again! Journalling blocks this time. Pictures and freebies later!

I have been working on my site this morning to add the new frames I have been making. Its a set of Baubles in different sizes.

What do you think?

Free digi versions coming soon.

I was ever so good yesterday. Despite the power being off for a couple of hours, I finished the last of my Quilted Christmas Stocking orders. Now I just have to get them all packed up and posted!

The next job on the list is the Christmas cards. There are LOADS of them to get done!

However, there is a glorious frost out there and it is soooooooo tempting. Might just have to go out and play with the camera first!

Amost there!

After the panic of last week, things seem to be coming together at last! The OU course is finished and if anybody wants to see the photos I submitted for the ECA they are here.

And, what is more, I have used one of the for Januarys calendar. This is one of my favourites and I thought the frost theme fitted January - even though it was taken in November.

I managed to fit into my dress for Saturday night and my dearest looked gorgeous in his tux! I was careful about what I drank as I really didn't fancy being ill but the very late night left me feeling a bit like a zombie on Sunday. I even fell asleep in Top Gear so am going to have to watch the re-run! I was still tired yesterday and didn't go to C&C as I couldn't find the energy to rush about. We were in bed just after nine last night and I am feeling loads better for it!

Today I am at Chatteris Museum again. This is the second week of the Arts and Crafts Exhibition. If anybody is in the area it is open from 10 to 4.30 Tuesday and Thursday this week.

And on the crochet front, I am working on more Chritmas themed frames. I am going to release a pattern for just the Christmas ones as soon as I am able and then work on some more general themed ones after Christmas.

Hello Stranger!

I have been trying to get in and post for what seems like months with no avail! I have no idea why. I have changed settings in IE numerous times and still haven't managed it. Today, I changed even more setting and have finally managed it, although what I have done, I have no idea!!!!!

On the OU front, the course if finished. I have had great fun doing it but did get a bit panicky at the end while trying to choose 10 photos for my ECA. Mark was getting a bit short tempered with me over it but it is all finally done. When the ECA deadline has past, I can post the slideshow to the photos for you all to see.

I have also been doing some crocheting. First, I had to make a shrug to go with my dress for this posh night out. Then I had to get some heads, hands and feet made for the Yo-yo clowns we have made for C&C. And finally, I have been amking more frames for scrapbooking.

I have decided to write this pattern for Christmas frames. So far I have the Christmas Tree, Stars, Baubles and Stockings. They are not all finished and I am planning a range of sizes in each of the designs. This means plenty of more work on them yet. All of the digi versions of the frames will be available as free downloads.
