The end of school holidays.

Just one more day before my son returns to school and routine takes over our lives again. Matt has been away at a rugby camp. We picked him up this evening. Tired but having had a great time. The washing machine has been busy ever since!  I expect the tumble dryer will be busy tomorrow having just seen the weather forecast.

As its been quiet and tidy here over the last few days, I've taken the opportunity to try and finish my hexagon blanket and I've made a few cards. I've not taken photos of them yet but will do tomorrow. I think I've worked out how to update things via my phone which will be much easier. Now I'd better get back to stitching those hexagons together. One more row and then to work out how to edge the blanket?  

Still trying to sort out blogging and my phone. So have added this photo I took last week at the beach.

More cricket & cards

The final U15 Northern Knights cricket match of the season today for my son.  Although they lost again, we were proud of his performance as wicket keeper and opening batsman.
I managed to spend a couple of hours crafting and crocheting yesterday. I'm still working on my ripple blanket (ready to keep me warm next cricket season), and put together a couple of cards.  I haven't managed to take photos of them all, but have three to share.

Back to work tomorrow, I can't believe the summer is passing by so quickly.  Matt goes to a rugby camp on Wednesday for 3 days.  It will be odd not having him around.

Well, although I was sorry that my son's cricket team didn't make it to the final today, after a fantastic cricket festival week, as they say every cloud has a silver lining, and it has meant I have been able to watch the tennis finals and make some cards.  :)

I was particularly pleased with the Gorjuss girl and my colouring - if I say so myself!
