Lots of photos!

Sorry anybody with dial-up!

Saturday morning here - most soccer has been cancelled, I've never known a year where the grounds have been closed so many times, I think it is a good indication of how wintery we have already been this year - those poor people down in the South Island stuck in snow, with no power! We have had it easy here compared with them.

The good thing is - Rhiannon has a gym competition in Palmerston North today and it was going to be a rush to go from soccer then there. Now we can go a bit earlier, do a bit of girlie shopping, have lunch and then go. It's going to be a late, tiring competition - they don't start until 3.45pm (all going well - because they're last, if the other levels are late, we'll be even later) - and there are a LOT of competitors at this one, so they won't finish until 7-8pm I'm picking. (wonder if I'll see Katrina shopping? LOL).

Anyway - on to the pictures! Stitching first -

Finished English Garden Pocket -

Be True (by Shepherds Bush) -

and for something different - I went to a beginners card making class on Wednesday night - lots of fun, and lots of ideas (and lots of money I could spend! LOL). Here are the three cards I made there -

and lastly, not my creativity this time, but the oldest son's! This is his Meatball and Spagetti Panini, this was his practice one, he did the real thing in their "invent a burger competition" at school yesterday - and he won!

Hmmmm for some reason, the picture won't load - might try again later, I need to get moving into the shower and get going!

Have a good weekend everyone :)

I hope the competition went well... it sounds like a very tiring day to me :)

English Garden Pocket looks so pretty!

ooooh... making cards can be so much fun... but it gets expensive *very* quickly LOL.

Hi Lisa, the pocket looks great all finished :) Also, great to see you in Palmy, even if it was for only a few minutes. Hope the gym competition went well too.

I just wanted to say that it's good to "see" you Lisa...I hope you don't mind if I drop in every now and again to see how you're doing!

Such a beautiful pocket - well done! Very satisfying to have some finishes. :D
Great cards too! I enjoy my monthly stamping club so much. It's also fun having some supplies available here at home to put cards together when I have the need for them, or for a quick craft for dd and her friends!
