Have been doing loads of crafty things but can't show them yet as they are mainly all table top quilts for a blog hop I am taking part in on 1st July. Am very excited to be taking part - I have been given the opportunity to take part in blog hops in the past but never have due to other commitments but this one I really fancied and thought would do me good. That said I joined up two weeks ago and have made three items (you only need to do one) and now have to wait ages until 1st July to show them - nothing like been prepared though is there! besides I might be able to get a couple more done in that time if I fancy it - no pressure though!
This week I have also been transformed in the hairdressers (only went in for a trim and three hours later came out a bleached blonde!), bought a new car which I think was preowned by a friend of mine according to some paperwork I found in the glove compartment (what are the odds of that??), been to the Malvern Quilt Show - yes spent a fortune: here are some of my yummy goodies:
I also bought some nice material to make DS2 a quilt using a Hatched and Patched Village Green pattern and a couple of other patterns along with a nice wooden/wire hangy thingy on which to display my blog hop quilts - all in all a lovely day out with the girls!
Then Friday I finished a painting at my art class - will show that tomorrow, visited my parents, did a last ever football run for DS1 on the evening and then took him to tennis yesterday (where I got to sit and play with my new set of distress markers that finally turned up on Friday - whoo hoo) and then had a dinner party last night. Off to my crop today - house isn't too much of a tip due to my galivanting but there have been a lot of items with no homes to go to shoved in my utility that now need sorting!
As my friend visited yesterday for a meal I made her a quick card for her birthday next week:
All in all a very busy, productive and expensive week! (good job it's my birthday in a couple of weeks!).
Can I just say a big hello to Deb - thank you so much for following me.
Thanks for looking - Off to panic pack for my crop even though I never get anything done there from Solihull
