Good Intentions???

My good intentions have gone out the window.

When I started this blog I had every intention of doing a post at least once a week, maybe every fortnight, but this is ridiculous.

I have been doing a few sewing odds and ends, I have something planned but its a secret at the moment, apart from that nothing really exciting. Today for example, I have spent my Sunday cleaning the oven, the stove, the range hood, kitchen cupboards and I mean clean! I pulled the range hood to pieces, that sort of clean, thank goodness that sort of thing only happens once a year. I have to confess though, I have DD's 18th coming up and I thought was a good time to do it. OK onto something interesting...........

Have I told you that occasionally I participate in a postcard swap? It's soooo much fun. It happens every two months and the topics vary. I am in a group with the ladies that I used to do calligraphy with, there are also some other, the basket weavers, some patchworkers, a few other crafty ladies, even a couple of talented young ones.

Below are the postcards I have received. They are all from different people, each one unique.

I keep forgetting to take photos of the ones I have done, except for the patchwork theme. This quilt is 4inches x 3 inches!!! on a 6" x 4" postcard

I've also had a birthday in the meantime, a few weeks ago.............. I share my day with my twin actually, Rose, I had a very quiet day which was lovely, and in the evening we got together at mum and dad's with our family's and had a lovely dinner. No presents, just getting together and mum's wonderful cooking is enough. I love family time.

I have done a tiny bit of stitching, this particular one is Friendships Garden, by Blackbird designs, I'm getting there, no rush, I have made myself a deadline so I know it will be finished,

I am supposed to be keeping up with my friend Gail Pan, but I have fallen behind, I really need to get a move on, or she'll run away with it.

My absolute deadline is my 50th Birthday, plenty of time!!(it's more than 5 years away!! ;-D)

Here's a photo of what I've done so far................. very different colours for me, but I love them.

I'm also working on Butterfly Garden, by Leanne's House, but I'll leave for another time.

That's enough from me for now, have a beautiful week, whatever you'll be doing, enjoy.
