I am a very poor blogger at the moment.
Because of the school holidays (and too much Olympic watching) I am not getting an awful lot of making or crafting done. There is a cardi on the go which will, hopefully, be finished in the next week but other than that – not a lot. Every other day I go in to the garden and pick a huge bowl of blackberries to make jam – don’t get round to making the jam so now have a freezer full of blackberries because I can’t waste them!
I might get round to jam making tomorrow. I was thinking of doing a car boot sale as I have a lot of stuff to get rid of but the weather isn’t looking great so will probably postpone until/if we get better weather in the next couple of weeks.
Flo has been very busy crafting however. She has been busy making flags! Flo is a little bit flag obsessed. Her interest does go beyond flags – geography generally she finds fascinating and she pretty much knows where every country in the world is on the map (even obscure tiny countries many of which I have to confess I had probably never heard of) and she knows ALL the flags.
Just over a week ago she decided she wanted to make ALL the flags – and she is working on this project regularly every day (we are getting out and about doing stuff but when we are at home it is all about the flags). Much coloured paper and card has been bought and used. She has made about 80 so far and knows exactly how many she still has to go.
I am fighting a losing battle in terms of keeping the sitting room carpet tidy but she is happy so who cares!
And generally speaking she is being much more productive than me at the moment!
Quite what we are going to do with all the flags once she has finished I have no idea…
I hope you have all had a good week.
