I have just returned from my annual crafting holiday. This year we didn't travel far which was a good job as it snowed heavy in Sheffield last weekend! Our cottage was at Stanton in Derbyshire. It was a very relaxing week. I decided to concentrate on my first hobby, patchwork and quilting. I didn't take a scrap of paper! I spent a lot of the week designing a superking size quilt for my bed at home. I had great fun as I didnt quite have enough fabric so it meant we had to visit a few fabric shops to get more! My good friend Norma and I made a small fabric bag together, just big enough for your phone and purse.
The location was lovely we took in a few walks across Stanton Moor, stopping at the Nine Ladies Stone Circle for a photo or two. I only took the older dogs with me and they were very well behaved.
It was a perfect day for Sally and Dan's wedding at the weekend. This photo was just taken on my phone but if you would like to see more take a look here. It was in an amazing setting, and the day was really emotional for Sally's family, some of you will recognize Mary, Sally is her daughter! I had a quieter day on Sunday, wasn't it miserable? I couldn't be bothered to walk the dogs far in the rain so I made a birthday card with my new stamps from the Craft Den sale.
I am goimg to my friend's wedding in a few weeks time so I must make a card. I have been planning the design! I have some great bargain stamps which I bought from TK Max, of all places! The cardboard box is from Graze, the box come filled with healthy treats through the post. I thought I would recycle the box after I eaten all the goodies, its just the right size for my special wedding card! I am using some lovely paper from Basis Grey and hoping to include a paper doile and some ribbon to finish.
Check back over the weekend to see if I've finished it!
