Age is just a number.

Good afternoon and how are you this Thursday?
Another day missed yesterday, don't know where the time goes just now.
Hubby came home last night so at least he is about for a few days, able to help out and take the dog "walkies".  Yippee, it might mean I have a little more craft time, I live in hope!

Today I have another card request for you.  More of the same I am afraid, as I mentioned before I do get lots of requests for these sort of age birthdays.  The brief for this one is that the lady likes camping, cycling and dog walking.  I think everything is covered.

The papers are by Cosmo cricket Baby Jane, covering two of my favourite colours teal and red.  The buttons are by Dress It up, I'm loving the old fashioned tent, it's just like the ones we had in the Guides except for the colour, ours were green.  Isn't it funny how something so small can trigger a memory?

Today seems to be flying by just as quickly as yesterday, a little crafting and a little housework.
Where does the week go?
I'm in work Saturday for a full shift, that's going to hurt after a week off!  No staying power.
Still on the up side my hubby's best mate always comes over to watch the rugby with us and he announced today that he is going to cook tea on Saturday night.  We always watch the rugby in this house, he has all girls and they don't, so it will be a boys night in and me!
Looking forwards to the treat as he's a really good cook.  Best clean the kitchen before Saturday!

On a totally different note one of my pals has recently started a crochet blanket and is already half way through in a week!  I must just crochet really slow.  Remember this...

The blanket I started but the thought of making 196 of them scares me so the project got put down.
I think now is the time to pick it back up and hook a little more.  At this rate I might get it finished in 5 years!  Please tell me I am not the only one who gets bored with long term projects?
I must just give Kirsti a shout out for inspiring me again to crack on with this project.  x

That's all from me today, don't forget to join me tomorrow with an old crafty project, I shall be looking forwards to it.

Another great looking card, the tent is so cute! It's definitely not just you that finds long projects tricky. I have a bag somewhere with one sleeve and half a cardigan front in it, don't think it will ever be completed! Have a good day. Cara x

I think you have covered all the details and what a great card she will love it do you know I have only ever been camping once and HATED IT (I love my creature comforts way to much lol) but it was a tent just like that
Enjoy your meal on Saturday and best of luck back at week the first day back after a week off is always the hardest xx

A perfectly themed card Erika, love those buttons, they work a treat for this order. I've given up doing long term projects, I never finish them, I need to see the project move quickly - perhaps I'm just a bit impatient.
Your lovely hexagons will look beautiful when sewn together. Perhaps if you made these into a smaller blanket shape and then added a few each time you finished them you would see the project grow and it wouldn't look so daunting, I think that's what I would do if it was me.

What a brilliant card Erika, you've certainly covered the remit. I love you little crochet hexagons, Lorraines suggestion sound ideal, Kate x

I'm sure she'll love the card. Very clever designing Erika. I'm not very good at finishing. I have cross stitch pieces that have never been finished off. Barbxx
