I hope you have had a good day.
Our garden adventure has continued .. .. all week .. .. sigh!!!
It is going to take ages to complete our rather ambitious project. I can't believe we thought we would be able to complete the mission in a week and perhaps have a day away somewhere?!?! LOL!!!
All was going well to plan until I saw a tiny little root poking up in the middle of the patio. It was the finest little root you could imagine .. .. but it had to come out. So I lifted the piece of slab it was nestling under .. .. and you have guessed it .. .. I then had to lift the next and the next .. .. and the saga continued all across the patio .. .. but of course as we progressed across the patio the root got thicker and thicker and thicker and deeper and deeper down. We won in the end but it took ages!!! That was Thursday's sketch!!
Then this morning the same happened again in the opposite direction but we sorted that one much quicker!
I did get to do my first bit of "pointing up" . .. . .. all I will say is I am better with embossing paste and a palette knife than I am with mortar and a trowel!!
Of course hubby said I had done a good job (but I think that was only because he wants me to do some more). In fairness it did look better this morning than it did last night!!
But my fingers were so itchy to do a bit of crafting that I just had to make something tonight .. .. and this is what I came up with for taking over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where the theme this month is "Floral Fantasy". There is also a DT call there too if anyone is interested.
So here we go:
Image: Penny Black "3344J" Rosy!
Sentiment: Computer Generated using font "Zipty Doo"
Backing Papers: Pink Petticoat (sadly no longer available)
My Favorite Things: Die-namics Blueprints 14
Ribbon and thread from My Crafty Stash Box
and that is me for today.
Hubby has just finished cooking the fish and chip supper so that is good timing. Off to link up quickly before it arrives!
Not sure what tomorrow holds yet .. .. but fingers crossed it involves crossing some things off my crafty list that has more than tripled over the course of this week!!!
Enjoy your weekend everyone.
