Thanks so much for all of your comments yesterday, we are still having a bit of a think but will let you know when we decide.
So today was day 1 of my 'official' time off, i had a lazy morning knitting and watching This Morning! erm then got on with loads of tidying and sorting, i kinda didn't think we would be doing that this week but alas I suppose I should.
Today was the day i properly started on my scrapbooking stuff, I have had a big clear out still not 100% there, maybe 50% but found some things i had been looking for and things i needed to bin tons of things.
Bit of unpacking from retreats
Rob came to keep me company, i cleared him off a seat and he shopped for my presents (xmas/birthday) surrounded by stacks of boxes.
Im leaving it at this point, i can see shelf, you cant see but that pizza box on the top shelf says 'Old icky pages' , i went through it today and chucked out some really bad ones and saved some photos and nice stash bits before they went in the bin.
So given that i have only just unpacked from the retreats i went to in October/ November i thought i should catch up on some of the layouts i havent shown you.
October Afternoon- Well we just had to use that title for our lovely group shot at the Cabin in the Woods, I think i have used a bit of the new restoration here by the lovely Crate.
I thought i should dedicate a page to my lovely new quilt, i really love it, its not perfect at all but i just love the colours and am gutted that its not stocked in the UK.
Dont you love the little bow punch? its Lauras but i copied and have one of my very own, not that i have used it yet.
This is one of my favourite, i think i did this one at the Sarah's Cards retreat of the cabin in the woods, i love this woodgrain paper and i did a bit of inky spattering as well.
So today i also came across a huge pile of pages that were really nearly finished, like needed hand stitching or journalling etc so i am going to try and get them finished this week. I would like to do a few pages this week as well as i assume my desk is going to have to be properly packed up soonish.
Tomorrow we have a few more jobs to do, we have to go to Ikea, now i say have to but we do, we got a chair from freecycle recently and it needs a new cover. I also need a rectangle cushion that i can cover. I also have a quilt to make for my Godson as he is visiting on Wednesday and i want to give him his present then.
Right im off to do a bit more xmas knitting, i just seem to be knitting the same things again and again for speed and ease for christmas presents more than anything else. The gloves i started last night are my 7th pair of the same ones and i know i have at least another 2 more pairs to make this week.
Very much looking forward to knitting something different in the new year but i guess i might have a new house to play with, you never know!
Right i hope you have all had a lovely monday and i shall catch you later
