I love Rhubarb

I got this rhubarb from my Mum's garden a few weeks ago as she is moving at the end of the year and this is what it looked like when I planted it in a tub when I got home.
It does look a bit bedraggled and I didn't hold out much hope of it ever growing.

But now look at it, i can't believe it has grown so much, I'm so surprised that it actually has, as I haven't fed or watered it at all it must be the compost I put it in and all the sunshine we have had. Won't be long before I am making Rhubarb Crumble at this rate, I'll have to post a picture when I do, I might even look into making some jam too.

Silver and Pearls

Not real silver and pearls but who cares they still look beautiful.
I bought the pearls from Reams as I just love those colours the darker one reminds
me of Stampin Up's Sage Shadow, which I will miss when it's gone.
 I will have to order some before I forget.
Anyway I threaded 3 pearls onto a jump ring then threaded that
jump ring onto a link in the chain, I did this about 120 times, but it was worth it.
I do hope you like it.

Nephew's Birthday Card

I wanted to show you the card I made for my Nephew's Birthday. I have taken the design from a card I made at one of Tracey's workshops ( which are great by the way ) I made it into a DL sized card and put a pocket on the inside so I could put some birthday money in and as it was a black card I decorated a white panel so I could write a greeting on it.

Hope you are all having a great day whatever you are doing I am having a day off as I have been busy this week just having the boys off school is tiring in itself, but on Tuesday I took James to Waterworld in Stoke-on-Trent I love going there, but it is sooo noisy. One tip if you do want to go buy your tickets online and get express service because you can just jump the queue and go straight in, perfect! and yesterday I took Robbie in to town for a coffee, wander and to make sure he had a hair cut which required some bribery but I suppose that is to be expected from a 12 year old boy!! It was a great day I love shopping with Robbie. I also got tickets to go and see Joseph at the Assembly Rooms next Friday, I am taking James with me but he doesn't know yet it will be a surprise for him. I might just put on another post yet just wait and see.
