Well here it is. All fairly self explanatory I think. This is how it was after making three cards, which I forgot to photograph - I can't believe it!!!! Trying to get them done and put in a parcel to send to USA.
I have been making some crochet squares that are going to be part of a blanket for a lady who is suffering from cancer. As well as the squares I have sent cards, one for the recipient of the blanket and one for the lovely lady who will be putting all the squares together.
Here are my squares.
I did do another card showing landmarks where I live and the three different places I made them.
I will pop along and visit those I follow, anyone who visits me and those ending in same number as me ( and those from last week I missed.
So why did I run out of time? Well DH and I went to see our grandson who was eight on Sunday. We had a very busy time!!!! D.I.L. made the actual cake but as she was at work on Thurs and Fri and was so tired when she got home on Thurs so I decorated the cake on Fri. She really likes to do it herself but had to be sensible. She also made cupcakes on Fri eve as it was the school fair on Sat. The cupcakes were gorgeous. As well as DH and I staying we were also joined by D.I.L.'s parents on Fri. On Sat morning we went to school fair, Sat PM was Harry's party!!! On Sunday he was awake very early (think he'd been awake a lot of the night as well) he opened presents and was very excited as was Sam his younger brother!!!! My son did a 5 mile run a little later - The Hepworth Dryad. He was pleased with his time. He is hoping to do the York Marathon.
We all then got ready to meet up with our younger son and his family to celebrate Harry's birthday with them. We met near Bakewell ( this was on our way back home) and we had a small room in a pub to ourselves. This was great as with four children aged 3, 5, 5 and 8 and 8 adults it was pretty lively. Both Mum's took plenty of activities to keep them occupied. We had a super lunch and everyone had a brilliant time. Afterwards we let them loose in a lovely playground nearby - fortunately there was a dry spell!!!! Then it was time to say our goodbyes- always sad until we meet up again.

A close up of the model I made of Harry in his Huddersfield Town kit :-)
When Harry saw the cake he told me it was 'awesome' and very professional - he is only eight!!! One of his friends asked me if I made it. I said yes and he said 'all by yourself ?' - I love kids and what they say :-)
Well that's all for now see you soon x
