At Last ....... a post from me on Craft Stamping Quartet

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.  We're off to meet my new great nephew later on today and little Connor makes nine great grandchildren for my Mum who's going with us.  My SIL says we should take our ear plugs because when he cries he has the loudest cry she's ever heard!  Hopefully he'll be in a good mood for us.

I thought I'd just let you know that I have finally managed to make a project for the blog I share with my three lovely buddies.  We have all had rather a lot of interuptions to our blog crafting due to various family occurances and this is the first project I have managed so far this year.  I'm really hoping I can get to some serious crafting for myself once Jenna's wedding is over in four weeks time.  Yesterday I spent several hours making bunting from pretty chintzy wallpaper.  I managed about 20 yards, which is about halfway, before a thunderstorm stopped play and I had wanted to take a photo of my whirlygig (spinning washline) in the garden as I was pegging it all on there to dry and to stop it getting tangled (which is a job and a half I have discovered).  It's looking okay and will supplement the proper hired bunting beautifully I think.  If I get chance I'll take a photo when I do the other half.

Anyway, here's a little taster of my project and if you want to see more hop over to Craft Stamping Quartet to see the whole thing.  My buddies aren't too far behind me with their projects so they will be revealed very shortly too.

Have a happy day.

Lots of love
Lesley  Xx
