Last day of the easter holidays

Yes it's the very last day of the school holidays (except for Private schools so Joe is happy), I popped into work this morning for a couple of hours to prepare for tomorrow and now I am home enjoying my last bit of rest before the new term starts.

Now there is a bit of hooky going on here. One big Granny square and aren't the colours horrid! I am using all of my wool-that horrible acrylic type-that has been sitting in my wool box for years. On the odd times that I watch TV I like to be doing something so this is my current WIP and it hasn't cost me anything. Doesn't every house have to have at least 1 granny blanket. All be it 1 big square or lots of squares sewn together. This is my new baby, an ATG gun. I had one previously but it was no means as good as this one. I ordered this online from Albums & Answers and you even get a choice of colours. I was persuaded by Tereesa to bling mine up a bit so it was a good way to use some of the rubbons I have as I am NOT a rub on girl.
and yes i seem to be in a card making mood lately.
Here are a couple more


and one last one that I made for Jenni with one of my new stamps. (this is so/sew Jenni-sorry couldn't help it) and some gorgeous Stampin Up cardstock and ribbon.


Where ever you are and what ever you are doing I hope that you have a great day. I am off to make a platter of dainty sandwiches for a big cadet night tonight (me and my big mouth) so much for R & R.
