Morning all, a morning post, that's a first for me in a while!
No work today, just a bespoke card then a man mountain of ironing to work through.
Did you have a good weekend then?
It was super busy at work on Saturday and I spent most of my day on the shop floor and not out the back as usual. With a meal deal and a clothes sale it was all hands on tills, so to speak.
Then relaxing evening was spent in front of the TV, how lazy but I did manage a little crochet square. I am having fun with the basic Granny square just now, I just can't decide what colour combo I like the best for my cushions. I think I might have to just show you one day this week and see what you think too.
On Sunday we went to Nairn for some fruit picking. I was hoping to get some more raspberries to make jam as all my pots made earlier in the summer have vanished! Unfortunately the raspberries were finished but the family did have fun and managed to pick a few last strawberries, the biggest juiciest cooking apples and a couple of punnets of very large blackberries which are lovely, sweet and juicy. The blackberries are much better than the ones in our garden.
Now what to do with it all?!
Yesterday we had a flan with fresh fruit on the top for pudding but I think I might be on a jam making fest...later this afternoon. I have found a very old recipe for apple and blackberry jam which I am tempted to give a go, decisions, decisions.
The place where we fruit pick also has a great little farm shop and it would have been rude not to have tried the ice-cream on such a lovely sunny Sunday afternoon, don't you think?
Anyway they also have a play area with a sand pit, slide and trampolines so half an hour there with ice-creams in tow to blow away the cobwebs was just fine. I even managed a few bounces on the trampoline too!
Back to today and this was a card my mum asked me for. It was for a fella Harley biker, the brief was for a CAS card with a Harley theme....oh he is always recognised for wearing his black cowboy hat and boots.
Brief covered. The hat and boots were cut on my cricut with Harley bits from EK Success. Simples!
As Alexander the Meerkat would say.
I'm away to crack on with another bespoke card and then grab my crampons and rope to climb the ironing mountain. Can't wait!
Have a good Monday. Happy crafting. x
