Where did my morning go?
I think someone stole it while I wasn't looking?
Did you have a good weekend?
I had a very lazy one. Trying to get my boys to do anything just now is definitely fruitless.
I am putting it down to exams and hoping things pick up as the weather improves.
I enjoyed just chilling, a bit of card making, a new book and two new crochet projects, one of which I have even finished. Now I don't want you to think that must mean the granny square blanket is finished, as is the bunny, nope, I've just put them to one side whilst I start something else.
How many unfinished projects can you have on the go at once? If only there was a prize!
I'm sure I'd have even a little competition.
Today I have a bespoke card to share with you. When I was asked for this card I did think, how on earth will I manage this one?
I was asked for a grey climbing wall, a climbing rope and helmet.
I can remember saying to my crafting buddies at the last crop, mmmm, I don't know quite how I'm going to tackle this one. Then as I chatted I had a brain wave, it doesn't happen very often!
This is what I came up with.
I made the climbing wall with paper and thread, the helmet I drew and then cut out adding colour and glaze to give it a more realistic look. the rope is embroidered thread and I used some wire to create the carabiners and figure of eight equipment.
I was happy with the final effect but I do hope her daughter likes it.
Have you ever tried rock climbing?
I'm afraid I am not a natural. I tried in my late teens and found it very difficult to lift my own body weight with my arms. I found the view at the top of the cliff was the best bit and the abseiling down great fun, once you get over the initial going over the edge, but the climbing up very tough indeed.
I've never had the urge to give it another go, maybe I would find it easier now? Probably not!
That's all from me today, I'm working the rest of the week except Friday and Sunday, so a busy time. I better go and get cracking. I guess my blogging this week might be later in the day. I have a few things that I was playing with over the weekend to share, so as Arnold would say, "I'll be back!"
