- sorry for misleading some of you last week. I didn't think about it until I started reading comments - the glamorous, dreadlocked lady wasn't me but Anne Lamott, whose great quote I'd put above the pic. Me? I'm more a cross between Judy Dench (hair) and Princess Fiona, for the rest of me (but not quite as green!)
I had to laugh - the new liberated me decided to take a selfie to show you, but my arms are too short!! All I could get was a view up my nose, undergirded by many more double chins than I'm sure I've got. How do people manage to get decent ones? Anyway, I'll wait til I'm feeling brave again, and someone sympathetic(like DD2) is around, to take one for me.
- a few people asked what courgettes are, that I grow in the veg beds. You might be more familiar with their Italian name, zucchini.
A quiet week on the crafting front, because this weekend was a long Bank Holiday one, and Monday was DH's birthday. I had foolishly hoped to get all the crafting stuff from the loft with DD2, and put it all away neatly by now - HAHAHA!!! We stopped after retrieving most of the card making stash, which is almost tidied.
I just managed to find enough wherewithal to knock up a hasty card for DH. The combination of not having everything to hand, and a distinct lack of confidence (no card making for over a year now!) meant I'm not overjoyed with the result, but he was happy, so that's good.
The PC printer isn't working yet, so I had to resort to handwriting the inside. I searched for a suitable but not slushy message, and was happy with this one I found on Pinterest.
I've almost finished the little waistcoat (just the border and buttons to attach) so will put that here, next week.
Any crafting this week will hopefully happen in the garden. I'm currently waging a one-woman war against the entire slug & snail population of the UK, which have migrated to my garden.
Pop over to Auntie Julia, to see what else is happening in Blogland today, won't you?
Love for now, Chris xx
