April Madness!!!!!!

Really, really big sorry..........I've been such a bad blogger!!!!!

April is officially the month from hell for me, I have worked soooooooo hard for the WHOLE month and there is still more to do. I've been starting before 6 in the morning and I have been shattered by late afternoon.

Hence, no blogging, no crafting.....just lots of trying to rest the grey matter!!

I'm still busy but I had signed up to a couple of things and the time is ticking by. The main one was the lil' swap Kathy was organising on B.F. It was to make 6cm squares to a theme of every ones choice that ideally would fit in a Maze book or maybe in a frame for display.

Here's my efforts:

Hearts for Caroline


















Nature for Karen

















Teddies for Carol

















Defining Colour for Di

















Sea Life for moi


















Pastels for Kaz

















Flowers for Crisashy

















Indian for Beth

















The Seaside for Rosie

















Something soft for Lynne

















Seasons for Chris

















Pretty in Pastels for Kathy

















They were great fun to do, I just wish I'd been a little less tired recently but never mind.

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel so today I have re-written my Crafting To Do list and I have one really important job to do........more details of that soon (wink wink)!! and then I will be back almost on track. I've purposely not signed up for any more swaps to give me a chance to catch up but I am way behind with Emily's Art Journal so I will try and do something about that soon.

On a more personal side of things, it was my mums 86th birthday bash last weekend (yup, I volunteered to organise)!! Here's a couple of pics of the day:

One of the birthday girl herself.....doesn't she look fab!

















and Tony insisted on taking one of me, so here I am next to bro stuffing my face LOL!



















Oooh, a lil message for Rosie......I know you've tagged me, I'll pop it on here asap hun!
