Good afternoon peeps - I have scheduled this post so I do hope it works!!  This fortnight on the One Stitch at a Time Challenge the theme is Anything Goes with Women.

The world is your lobster with this theme so I do hope you are going the enter the challenge.  You can win the following plethora of prizes 

Blossom's little contribution!!

Whilst I'm here I thought I would update you on the pond 'renewal' - as you can tell by this little pic I'm not the only supervisor.  Blossom decided to help out by testing whether the cement between the bricks had set!!  As you can tell, her little fat paw really made an impression and the maestro was not best pleased because he had to 're-do' this bit.  There's another one a little further around the edge but it's not as deep so he left that one in!!

The pond is taking shape and we are waiting for the cement to dry before anything else happens.  Mind you he's at work next week so it will be on hold for a few days - the birds (and Milo from next door) have already been down for a drink so they're happy!!

Oh well - back to card making!
