I have still not done any paper crafting. I do need to get my act together though as I have a class booked in for a week on Saturday - so if I make it here next week I might have something on my desk.
Crafting wise I have been trying to get to grips with a crochet square that had a daisy in the centre, then a heart inside a square. Very simple to the experts out there but took me a while to get it right.
I also joined in a CAL but have not done a lot yet!!!
I have also been working on some sugar craft items. Our group have made made some Edwardian ladies, a Geisha girl and peony and a Victorian street scene. Our teacher is taking them to a Sugar Craft Show to exhibit as an example of work her class does.
Some of the other models for the street scene
I have also been doing some knitting for charity.
So that's my craft offerings for this week.
Why am I showing you? Well it's all the brainchild of the lovely Julia - pop along and have a look at what it's all about :-)
I will visit as many desks as I can and all those who visit me and who end with same number as me.
...... and the rest
It was our youngest son's birthday on 28th April and DH's on 30th April. That weekend our eldest son and family came down from Yorkshire to celebrate all the April birthdays.
On the Saturday we went into Birmingham to the Pizza Festival to support our D.I.L. who took her Vintage Ice Cream Van to sell ice cream. Unfortunately it was a cold day and not really what we all expected but we made the best of it.
When we got home that evening we actually ordered in more pizza for supper as everyone was still hungry - lots of fun all being together.
On Sunday D.I.L. was based outside the library in the City Centre ( B'Ham) for the B'ham 10 K run. It was a better day weather wise. Our son and D.I.L. took part in the race and were pleased with their times.
That evening we all went out TGI'Fridays where we had a very noisy and fun celebration. Afterwards back to younger son's for cake and a glass of wine or two. :-)
Eldest son and family went home on Monday and then we got ready to go to Somerset to visit mum and then on to Cornwall for a much needed holiday. I was very stressed, especially after visiting mum :-( - she is lonely and needs help with looking after her home. Breathing is not good especially when she tries to do too much - but she is being very stubborn. We did go out for a lovely meal on the Saturday evening and she enjoyed that. It was hard leaving her on the Sunday.

Only been back since about four o'clock on Sunday and went to our son's that night for a BBQ, then afternoon tea on Monday ( a birthday treat for my friend and me from two of our other friend's) It was yummy- sandwiches, lots of cake, prosecco and tea :-)
This morning it was Sugar Craft where we were all frantically getting everything finished and together for our teacher to take to the show at the weekend, Then came home and collapsed :-)
Sorry re the phone photos. Took the new camera away , had got the card for it but left the cable needed to recharge at home :-(
