Life is still very busy and although I have not been blogging very much lately, there is still lots of creativity and crafting going on to share with you in the future.
Only two items to add this month, a walk and Yes! and Yippeeeee!!!! I met a fellow blogger!
17 – walks longer than an hour
One this month, during Half-term with my daughter’s three bouncy children. We were at Kingston Lacy from 11.15am until 5.30pm, walking through the gardens and woods and clambering up and over all sorts of obstacles. The children also did some carpentry: making a walking stick, a little easel and a bug hotel. It was a great day out.
We even saw some ‘pineapples’ – the children have run on ahead, can you see the dots in the distance? They call this the ‘Pineapple Path’ as they think the trees look like giant pineapples.
And here are a couple of lions especially for Cathy
I like hers better though!
16 – handmade greetings cards.
SIXTEEN – DONE!
15 – beachy things (split into 3 x 5s – 5 pieces of beach related art, 5 beach cleans on new beaches, 5 beach clean sculptures, assemblages or mandalas)
Zero so far – this is the one I’m most disappointed about, but there is still time.
14 – items for my Etsy shop
Remains at 5.
13 – drawers, cupboards, shelves or boxes sorted out.
I’ve shuffled things around a bit, but can’t claim anything has truly been sorted out.
12 – WIPs finished
11 – paintings/ art works
10 – house and garden tasks
9 – textile books worked on.
8 – hand written letters to grandchildren
7 – find 7 interesting objects
6 – items made for Pippin or improvements to Pippin (the caravan in the garden).
5 – random acts of kindness
although of course there are always more to do
4 – new National Trust properties visited
3 – make three up-cycled items of clothing
2 – meet two fellow bloggers
So happy that I was able to meet up with Jane of Rainbow Junkie. She came to my local town and we able to meet up for a walk along Ringstead beach. It felt very special to sit over a cuppa after our walk and share life stories. She gave me the most generous and beautiful gift of her very own Celtic Coasters – I am so thrilled with them! Lucky, lucky me! Thank you Rainbow J. ❤
