Well not much crafty action on the desk this week as we spent the weekend away back in England. We went to a hotel near Badminton so I could go to the open day at Jekka McVicar's Herb Farm.
I have seen her plenty of times on the telly at Chelsea & read her books etc & had wanted to go for ages.
They were having an "open weekend" & we booked for a workshop on cuttings.
Jekka was very welcoming & approachable - even having gardened for 30 odd years I still learnt loads of tips !!
We dodged the rain & bought some unusual herbs & so Sunday was planting them out when we got home !
He has a name - Mr Joggles - as he was bought from the Joggles website & Rhodri because he comes from Rhode Island - and now lives in Wales - so the name seemed appropriate all round !
I thought I would have a play in my journal to decide how to dress him - I took his photo - printed it 4 times & just played around with some costume ideas !!
I'm leaning towards either the Gardener or The Eccentric Steampunk Inventor routes - all ideas welcome !!!
Also on the desk this week - on the right is the card for Dad's birthday & on the left 2 new Cuttlebug plates - my old ones are cut to ribbons ! And some stickers for vintage style pages for my Mother In Law's 80th birthday scrapbook pages - otherwise not much going on sadly !
If anyone knows where the weeks go could they let me know !!
Anyway - a happy crafty week to you all !
