Aah Easter weekend, otherwise known as Destroy It Yourself weekend where all the DIY shops are full of those off work for the long weekend with nothing else to do except attempt those dreaded tasks about the home. We're no exception! But before I share our days work, I'd better show you my project for the day:
I've had a little play with the Sew Lovely stamp set and coordinating Sweet Stitches papers. Great fun. The patterned paper already has the stitching on it to save me a job! I stamped the tape measure on to some Pretty In Pink Grosgrain Ribbon and added a folded punched oval and a jumbo eyelet to the end. The other images have been stamped and paper pieced with the DSP and stuck down with dimensionals. Of course I had to use self adhesive pearls for the tops of the pins!
Now for the destroy it yourself job. Our garden isn't very practical for the boys to play out in because the back gates broke some time ago and we haven't had time to do anything abou it. Now though we're putting up a new fence and a gate. When I say 'we' I do of course mean 'he' with me just observing and providing the occassional brew to keep him going. I've been far too busy having water fights with the babies!
The fence and gate are partway down the garden as we don't want the boys to go beyond this point whilst they're little. We plan at some point to dig a veg patch in the other half of the garden but that's not going to happen this year as I think we'll need to hire a bob kat and a skip first to clear the land!
Enjoy the sun if you have it too.
