Been busy!

Im off work this week with Merv and Owen and have been a busy getting lots of bits and pieces sorted at home.

I have sorted the bed out the front of the house, pulling up all the old plants and planting some pansies. Im really pleased with how it looks and of couse I
planted purple pansies!

Merv and I planted the sprouting potatoes - so watch this space with those. My lettuces and radishes have all sprouted and will need thinning out soon! The carrots and parsnips are not doing anything at the moment but fingers crossed they will bery soon.

Merv has replaced the guttering on the back of the house, the rest of the house needs doing too but that will be a job for later on.

I have painted my log cabin, at last - Ive had the paint since it was put up which must be 2 or even 3 years ago! Its a lovely soft green and Im really pleased with it.

We have had a new tv aerial put up so Matt and Owen's tvs are brilliant now and Matt gets all the freeview channels at last.

Merv has been working on his bike this afternoon so I thought I would have an hour or so in my cabin and these are some of the cards that I made. I will share more over the next couple of days. They are using some new Stampin Up papers and the oval scallop punch and oval punch. As you will see the scallop oval and oval punches hold Craftwork Cards mini messages in the centres beautifully!! Added card candy too, of course.

If the weather is good tomorrow we are off to Hastings for the day - the beach at last!
