Not too hot for me, I took Sorrel for an early walk and we have been sitting in the conservatory with the fan on and have now moved to the living room which is lovely and cool. We shouldn't moan as we have waited so long for a bit of sun and I like to sit outside - but in the shade.
Still at least having a long run of sunny weather takes away the guilt at being inside crafting and the early walk gives me a lot more time in the morning so I have been indulging my addiction and made a couple more journal pages for our monthly swap. This month I have chosen my garden birds and autumn leaves as 'things you like' - our theme.
Like this one better, same inks and some favourite leaf stamps - I have a shed-full of them and a tree stamp by Lavinia that didn't stamp well. Probably because I tried to stamp Versafine over the top of pigment inks and that doesn't work. Saved the day by inking over with a Pilot pen.
Made a batch of ATCs yesterday ready for next Wednesday's WOYWW anniversary swap. Used to make a lot of ATCs but rarely make more than one a month now so it has been a refreshing change. I have loads of ideas for more and may try some fabric ones - if I can lift my sewing machine of the floor, it weighs a ton.
In true Blue Peter tradition - here's a few I made earlier. If anyone wants to do a one-to-one swap please email me - via my profile page and I will get back to you.
Enjoy the sun - it may be snowing next week.
