MIX IT UP AND START AGAIN....
It's been a busy week, that's for sure! Having Owen home meant that I wasn't spending much time crafting but I was looking forward to doing some more sewing and returning to band at the weekend and seeing Lisa-Jane. Thanks to the appalling rain, the meet up with LJ was postponed and due to the problems with all the safety checks on the trains, it meant a sudden journey to take Owen back to Reading....cue lots of motorway driving but with a happy twist, which I'll reveal later!
I found out that the yarnbombing group were happy for me to sew some items so I'm going to use up scraps and make fish, starfish etc etc. I've just cut out a rough template and will add some felt fins from the heap of scraps that live in the cupboard!
The first length of 7" wide crochet has been done and rolled up into a Swiss Roll, now I'm using a ball of the yarn Debbie Rock sent and it's proving very seasidey, perfect!
The other thing that arrived this week were the postcards I'd had printed to accompany the ATCs:
Nicely printed with envelopes, I couldn't have printed them at home for much less...you'll have to wait until next week to see them though!
Proof that life is slowly getting back to normal is this:
G and I attended the first group litter pick of the year, a beautiful morning meant there was a good turn out and we picked 31 bags from a wide area.
And the surprise? We broke our return journey from taking O back to have a socially distanced meet up with.....
Julia!!!! Me and my bezzy!!! It was the first time we'd seen each other for 16 months and it was wonderful to meet up. I don't think we drew breath, lol! It was a proper spur of the moment thing and made my day.
I'm looking forward to the Anniversary next week and have made a few ATCs to swap, you have been warned *grin*
Have a fab week, see you for WOYWW 624 XXXXX
