It was a comfort food eating (shepherd's pie, now that summer feels like it's disappearing), feature wall painting (pre-teen pink also disappearing), car fixing (so bank balance, yes, disappearing) kind of weekend.
With added height measuring (6'4" - still growing - how are you actually my mother? he said), lemon coconut cupcake baking, new term planning and - best of all- power of speech celebrating. To her great credit, Granny has been taking in very good part all the heavy leg pulling about the very welcome return of her conversational powers. She wasn't silenced for long, which is good; and she's always happy to offer an opinion, which is...interesting.
Yes, dear, that's a lovely blanket, but it's not actually crochet, is it? More like one handed knitting. Put the wool in your other hand and hold it properly....
She's back, then.
My photo today has me unpacking and deciding where to pin the little map banner I made for this month's copy of Scrap365. A couple of you have asked about the recent 365 news: and yes, it's true, after this month Scrap365 will be produced as a bi-monthly supplement to be included in Craft Stamper magazine. The first issues of the new format are planned and I'll be writing along as ever. The blog will be continuing to provide as much inspiration as we can pack in there; and of course you can follow DT members and their personal blogs too by following the links in the 365 sidebar. Scrap On 365ers!
..and have a great week
