Well where did April go?   I do apologise for not blogging but I've not actually been doing any crafting although I have been painting on a much bigger scale. 

We ordered a new settee in January and I was hoping DH would re-decorate the lounge before it arrived.   He was obviously far too busy at work so I've spent the last 3 weeks emptying cupboards, moving furniture, painting the lounge and then putting it all back again.   As my crafting space was the corner of the room and half the dining table it all had to get packed away.  I still have some white gloss to do but the end is in sight and I can get back to creating.

Lynnda (from Oak House Studio) and her DH visited yesterday and she kindly brought me back a boxful of my samples that I've made over the years - I think these are all recent Hochanda TV ones.  She obviously thinks I have some spare space!!  Seeing them all together I obviously went for bold colours and quite a lot of orange surprisingly.

I'm not sure what to do with them - maybe find a big frame and put the best  in there.  At least then they'll be on display and brighten up a  room somewhere.  Good memories too!

Anyway hope you are all enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend and hopefully I will get back to entering a few challenges again.

  1. I have missed you! Sounds like you have been very busy though and I am sure the room looks much brighter for all your efforts. That really is a bumper bundle of cards and Lynnda brought to you, I hope you do frame some, it would be a shame to hide them away in a cupboard! Anne xx

  2. WOW what a wonderful collection of cards and such a fabulous idea to frame them
