Evening all, the bloomin weather has changed again, just when you get used to it being nice it’s back to freezing. It’s been lovely this last week being able to get the washing hung out and seeing the Spring bulbs starting to peek through. I can’t wait for the garden to be full of colour again.
The Harrogate show was busy, in fact I was glad I was behind the stand. I think the smaller hall was really quite a lot smaller and there were so many people there, we never stopped all day. I promised myself I wasn’t going to buy any stash and I was quite good, I couldn’t leave a couple of dies and a few embellishments but I did resist quite a few temptations
I did a quilting class at our local knitting and sewing shop on Sunday, I was a bit worried because it was hand sewing and I haven’t done any for a lot of years but I actually really enjoyed it. I’ll take a picture of what we made and tell you a bit more about it later in the week
We have a new a colour challenge over at the Ribbon Girl this week…
It’s not a colour I use very often and I struggled to find some nice papers even though I have boxes full
These are ‘Up, Up and Away’ by First Edition. I really like the First Edition papers but always find that there are a few in each collection that I’m not keen on. I used crushed olive distress ink around the edges but it was just a bit too yellowy when I look now, it seemed to match at the time lol although the card does look more green in real life!
I used lots of gorgeousness from the Ribbon Girl shop;
25mm cream cotton lace
25mm satin ribbon
The challenge closes next Saturday at 9pm, all the details and how to enter are on the Ribbon Girl challenge blog and as always there are great prizes and some amazing inspiration from the DT
Just before I go thanks to those of you that leave me comments, I do love to read them and will visit all your blogs shortly to see what you’ve been up to
Have a lovely evening all x
