Sun is out!!!

Woohoo it's warm!! Have dusted down my barbie and rustling up some homemade burgers! Now why couldn't it have been like this all summer?
Cats are out lazing in the afternoon sun, there is a nice breeze and everything looks sooo much better today ;o)
Here's to an Indian summer!!

Anna Griffin - was gonna be good

QVC had a couple of hours yesterday with Anna Griffin who is one of my fave designers to watch, she is just so elegant and classy and doesn't talk too much like some. Anyway I was supposed to be very good and not spend any money but as it was an anniversary show they had free p& 3 items fell into my basket and oops I went and bought them!! One of them was a beautiful baby accordian album which I can't wait to arrive and put together. Don't you just love the anticipation of getting pretty things in the post.

Mum's Birthday

The birthday went well, the weather held out and we were able to use the new barbie that we had all bought her! Now she has to clean it ;o) Below are the cards that I made for her, pink and greens are one of my fave combos at the mo.

If that big yellow thing in the sky ever comes out today as predicted she might get to practice cooking on it. Will probably get a call when she goes to light it though, lol.

Sat making lots of K&Co boxes last night from one of their pads, some of them are really pretty, some are a tad too fiddly for my liking. Will post some pics soon.

Been a few days since my first post but I'm back. Went into a lovely shop in Ely the other day where I discovered Fat Quarters and think I am going to be hooked! Bought myself a lovely pink polka dot one and am going to try and do something with it today.

It's my mother's birthday in a few days and I really should be getting on with her cards, always seem to leave till last minute. I must get more organised!

Have so many ideas in my head that I have just started a journal to put them all in. I can look back over them in the future and see how many I actually got around to making, lol. I seem to be one of those people who get loads more done when there are people around, strange I know but then I've always been known as quarky ;o)

Be back again in a few days to let you know what I eventually made.
