What's been going on?

Hello!

Only one post from me in over a month!  I've not been doing much crafting. Not because I don't want to but I've just not had the chance between work, holidays and getting out and about in what has (mostly) been quite good weather!  Hopefully now things will settle down a bit and crafting normality will be resumed!

Here are some holiday pics.  3700 nautical miles in 2 weeks around the Baltic (again!) in the lap of luxury.  It's always nice to get home though.. and see the cats!


Martini's - yum.. and yes, that is ice on the bar


Feta, tomato and watermelon with a balsamic dressing - amazing

Frogs legs - not for me...  "foodie" 12 year old had them!


Tivoli Gardens - Copenhagen - we love Copenhagen!

Tivoli 

Midnight sail under the Oresund Bridge (connecting Denmark and Sweden) - not much clearance for a ship of our size - amazing to see!

"Spring" rolls.. get it??  An indulgent night in Qsine


Stockholm

Stockholm Theme Park - Grona Lund on the island of Djurgarden.  Might try the ABBA museum next time!

Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil

Tallinn

Lawn on the top deck

Lauluvaljak - home of the Estonian Song Festival. In 1988 the songs sung here led to the overthrow of Soviet rule. This is the statue of Gustav Ernesaks.  

Saint Petersburg - the newly built Krestovsky football stadium (it wasn't there last time we visited!)

Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood.  What an amazing sight with the blue sky - it was grey last time!


Ceviche


Peterhof

Peterhof Palace - the Russian Versailles

Submarines

Just a small ice cream in Warnemunde 

Not a bad view


Martini bar - play time!

Goats cheese - amazing!

The giggling babies - the source of quite a few "big" wins!

Martini Flights


So, now that the holiday is over will things get back to normal?? 

No..


More on this little lady in future posts!


It's nice to be back.. now, crafting.. where to start??

Some recent makes!

Hello!

Well here we are and it's half way through the month!  Weather a bit cooler and some rain (which is good for the gardens!)
So far we've managed two BBQ's, which, for mid May in Scotland is pretty good going!

I've not had much crafty time recently (although I do seem to be managing to "crafty" shop!)

But here are a couple of recent makes.. die cutting rather than stamping!

May already!

Hello!   Wow! We are in May already!  Holiday countdown is definitely on! 

I've been missing in action on the cardmaking front but I have been using my time wisely!  I'm in the process of creating boards on Pinterest with all my stamps and dies etc.  The reason?  Only so that I can see what I have in one place and hopefully take inspiration from it rather than continuing to shop for new stash!
It's no small task though!

I have been using some of my time to craft though. In the form of crochet. Nothing complex, just a big (BIG!) granny square!  It's so colourful and cozy. The wool is arran weight so it's really quick and easy to work with.  Here it is... get your sunglasses on!

Hi!

Found a little bit of crafty time today (I'm mostly busy with crochet at the moment) so I thought I would have a play with the new Horace and Boo collection from Polkadoodles.

I couldn't resist this little cat!
