A busy time!

We have been rather busy over the last few weeks with one thing and another.  It may well become a little quieter on the blog front during the next few months as last week we bought a minibus to convert into a camper van and also ordered a couple of kayaks too, so lots to do and lots to think about and hopefully lots of fun coming up!


We have spent this weekend removing seats!


If anyone is interested these seats will be for sale very soon and are all in excellent condition.


You will be glad to know that Giraffe No. 2 has now been finished!



And here he is waiting to be packaged up for his journey to his new home.


In the top right hand corner of this picture you can just see a small pile of wedding invitations, another project that has been taking up my time recently!

And finally - wedding dress progress.  It is progressing rather slowly at the moment, just trying to get the skirt bit right.  I think I am on version 3 as we speak :) It's proving a bit of a challenge, but once this is sorted the rest will be a doddle!!!!!

I'm afraid I haven't been doing much blog hopping recently, with so many deadlines to meet I've just been concentrating on the most necessary project before moving on to the next.  This week I'll try to pop over to Handmade Monday and visit a few more of you if I can.

Thanks for reading
Have a good week!

  2. What great adventures ahead, make sure you take plenty of pics of your 'wip' (the good and the bad :) )
    Not everyone has the time to comment on every blog every week so don't feel too about cutting down your visits.

  8. You should apply to appear on George Clarke Amazing spaces with your van conversion. Cannot wait to see the finished camper van.

    The giraffe is so colourful and sweet

  9. I look forward to seeing how you go with the van conversion. We're currently trying to repair my grandmothers transit van (looks the same as urs) which has already been converted into a one bed sleeper. It's got a teensy bit of rust but sadly needs to find a new home.
    Whoever receives that funky giraffe will be thrilled. He's adorable!

  10. Crumbs! I know June said you'd bought a mini Van, but that's a mini Van & a half!!! Hope the conversion goes smoothly & you have many grand adventures in it. I love your little giraffe! So so so cute! I'd love to be able to make something like him.

    Quilting started again this week. It wasn't the same without you. Did you catch the picture in the paper last week?
