Seven of the patches in question are from Geocaching last year. Or it might have been the year before that - I've lost track! You had to complete six challenges to get certain "souvenirs", and by completing all six, you won the seventh - the "Achiever" award. We discovered you could buy these patches and although I think you're meant to stitch them to your geocaching bag or jacket or whatever, we've opted to add them to cushions - we're likely to buy more in the future and on a cushion there won't be the faff of having to take them off when the bag breaks or the jacket wears out etc...I bought two sets - Lil Miss B has her own geocaching ID so she got her own set of souvenirs.
I'm looking forward to getting back to card making and scrapbooking though, I will admit. And some beading. There's definitely beading on the horizon...

Here's a proper shot of what's behind me while I craft. It needs a darned good sort out and tidy up!
There's a hint to one of my other hobbies, up there on the shelf.... hehehehe.

So, short and sweet this week as I'm a late-comer. Off on the hop now, to say hello to a few of you.
Ciao for now!

So no, I've not gone mad and had a stash trash or a clutter clearance. No. I've come in here, looked through my blog reading list, and had an unfollow session - clearing more than half my list and deleting a grand total of 36 blogs.
What on earth happened to everyone? All the blogs I've unfollowed have stopped running. There last post was a year ago or more. And not a word as to why...
I know I'm pretty bad at blogging regularly, but only one or two of those blogs had folks that had popped on to say "Sorry guys, last post here". It does worry me that some of our blogging buddies may have met with unfortunate ends. With that in mind, I'm going to make sure that beloved Mr B knows my logins and can at least get in here and advise you all of my demise, should that be the case. Two or three blogs had been hijacked by spammers, judging by the content!
It has made me a little more determined to keep up with my blogging, which is why I'm sat here now typing away. Can't be leaving folks without something to read!
And suggestions please, of new blogs to start following.... always welcome!

Drinking..... squash - Cherries and Berries flavour. My caffeine intake has significantly reduced these days.
Eating... Home prepped Ham & Cheese salad with black olives.
Liking.... the new me. I've lost 30lb in the last 15 months and I'm looking forward to losing more.
Hating... losing control of my eating, the days I need to binge.
Being grateful for..... my amazing 85 year old mother, we've just had her staying for the weekend and she was awesome as always. Brought with her extra crocheted granny squares for Lil Miss B's blanket, so it could be made longer.
Wishing.... for better time management skills....

I will be swapping ATCs - I'm out at crop tonight making mine and I'm happy to swap with more folks than just the one following me.... Let me know if you're interested! I'm going to make about a dozen but can easily do more....
I have had such a busy day - I took photos this morning to post this, and here I am at 19:11 frantically typing up today's post as I should be out and about again by now. So much for sneakily doing it at work today!
My desk, as you can see, is pretty dull.. . The second desk however, has the in-progress makings of a rather lovely card on it. I can't lay claim to this one. This is all Lil Miss B's handiwork. Unfortunately, it's actually my birthday card, she hasn't quite got the hang of this subterfuge lark and forgets to tidy away secretive stuff. Doh!

In the spirit of keeping things going and making sure numbers don't fall for the next couple of weeks I will definitely be joining in while Julia has her operation and helping to support Jan in her Linky endeavours. I'm not sure why I have such a struggle to join in these days, but it might just be that we are insanely busy. I've joined fortnightly crop and a monthly crop, and I'm rehearsing singing with Salisbury Musical Society for a concert in mid June at the Cathedral - more on that at a later date. We're also gearing up for the next panto again already. Oh yes we are!
My desk this week is showing the signs of a post cardmaking session. I don't get much opportunity or time to sit and make cards but on this occasion it was necessary as Lil Miss B has started her GCSEs and I couldn't let the occasion pass without making her a good luck card. I also made one to match for her best friend. Stupidly enough, I forgot to take a photograph.
Mr B has also been busy sat next to me, with his soldering tools. Aside from making some adjustments to a lampshade, he has been helping me with a special order for the business.
Hare Moon Crafts had an order for a pair of cufflinks with a little girls fingerprints in, for her daddy for his wedding day. The bride collected them last weekend and was delighted! I'm so pleased and although I know they won't see this I wish them well in their future life.
So join in, do.... The Linky tool is at LLJs...Hope you're enjoying the restful holiday Julia!
