This has got to be a record - twice in one day!!! Having finished the cover for the 2010 365 calendar challenge, I thought I might as well come back and blog it!!! So here it is!

Today I finished my second card (of 2!!!) for the Bubbly Funk 25th club challenge, so decided to blog them now, rather than forget all about them!!! The theme this time was a sketch!

I've been having a go at wire crochet after crazydaisy (from BF) sent me the pattern! I found it very difficult to work with and almost impossible to get even stitches!! It looks quite effective from a distance I think, but doesn't stand up to too close an inspection!!

I then tried it using thread, which was a lot easier but it turned out very small!!! My next attempt will be with thicker thread!

Now I'm off to do a bit more sorting for the UKS cyber crop which is approaching rapidly. The mystery kit arrived today, so I must get my head round that now!! Bye for now.

Hello everyone!! What glorious weather we're having at the moment! It was the scrapbooking and stamping show at Alexander Palace this weekend which is always nicer on a sunny day. I love driving up the hill to it and being able to see the views right across London!! I went with my daughter on Saturday and, as usual, we had a super day. We got there as it opened and the entrance hall was packed. It took a good 15 minutes in a queue till we actually got in and we thought it would be a nightmare day, but it really didn't seem any worse than usual. Spent too much (again as usual!!) but my daughter won a Doodlebag tote bag with £150 of goodies in, at Capture The Magic stand!!! I have taken a picture of the stash that I bought and am now looking forward to the next show in September!!

Today has been a good day! It was a lovely sunny morning and I had a driving lesson with a new instructor and a new car, which I was a bit worried about, but it went very well and he seemed quite pleased with me!!! Then the best bit - I came home and found my tiddyjiggy waiting for me!! This is the swap we've been doing on UKS. Having already done the 12 x 12, and the 8 x 8, this was the last one and was 6 x 6. It's quite sad that there's no more to do, but I'm thrilled to bits with this one!!
I'm also blogging the finished March pages of the 365 2010 calendar challenge from Bubbly Funk! How can we be a quarter of the way through the year all ready???

I think now I should start thinking about the pages for May!! Bye for now!
